All Are Welcome!

This Week

These forty days called Lent are like no other. It is our opportune time to return to the God who rescues; to receive the gifts of God’s grace; to believe with the heart and confess with the mouth the wonder of God’s love in Jesus; and to resist temptation at every turn. This is no small pilgrimage on which we have just embarked. It is a struggle Jesus knew. It is a struggle Jesus shares. The nearness of the Lord, in bread and wine, water and word, will uphold and sustain us.

Readings: Deuteronomy 26:1-11, Psalm 91:1-2, 9-16, Romans 10:8b-13, Luke 4:1-13

We also have a new newsletter this week - read it here. 
Last year's Lenten Devotional is up on the blog - right here.
And Pastor Tom is blogging a little more than usual during lent - here it is!

Since some of us are off for President's day it seems like a good day to clean up the church in anticipation of Easter. We'll do general cleaning in the community center and sanctuary. If there are special projects that you think you might want to do, please see Rene ( and we might be able to make them happen.

Lunch, vinyl gloves, and fun will be provided!  Facebook Event Here.
