SERVICE OF HEALING AND WHOLENESS - Wednesday evening, March 27, 6:30pm in the Centrum. There have been requests that we offer a worship opportunity so we can create a space for people to gather in faith when dealing with difficult life issues. This service will be an arts-driven service that will include congregational song, choral music, instrumental music, liturgical dance and art. Dr. Jay Parkins is working on a liturgy that will bring everything together. The candlelit service, which will take place as the sun sets, promises to be an uplifting and beautiful time of worship. Childcare will be provided for this service for those families with children. We set the time of the service at 6:30pm to allow families with children to get home for early bedtimes.

As we continue our journey through Lent, a time of reflection, prayer and discernment, we hope you will take advantage of the Service of Healing and Wholeness. Please share this with your friends and neighbors. We are working to get this service advertised out in the community as well.

MISSION COMMISSION ==FOOD BASKET MINISTRY A generous person will be blessed, for he gives some of his food to the poor.” Proverbs 22:9

These baskets will contain all the items to prepare a nice Easter meal. We will also include a children’s book on the story of Easter and a brochure of our church services and activities.

We would like our Church to embrace this ministry by taking an egg off the display in the narthex and purchasing food items or making a monetary donation.
