     Upcoming Services & Special Events

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 17th at 9:30 AM - SIXTH SUNDAY AFTER EPIPHANY.  The Message, "Blessings and Woes," will be based on Luke 6:17-26.  Sometimes the sermons Jesus preaches are a blessing to us, and sometimes his sermons are judgment against us.  Are we able to receive Jesus' challenging words as well as those words that comfort us?  Sometimes the test of our faith is how well we are able to listen to and take to heart the hard sermons of Jesus.  There will be a Children's Message.  The Chancel Choir will sing an Anthem: "Praise Him with a Psalm" by Tom Fettke.  NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, OR WHERE YOU ARE ON LIFE'S JOURNEY, YOU ARE WELCOME HERE IN THIS UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST.

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 17th at 11:00 AM - BIBLE STUDY IN THE SNOW ROOM.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20th at 11:00 AM - BIBLE STUDY IN THE SNOW ROOM.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21ST at 7:30 PM - GRIEFSHARE SUPPORT GROUP MEETING IN THE UPPER FELLOWSHIP ROOM.

            JOIN US FOR OUR TRADITIONAL MEAGER MEAL
                ON  ASH WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6 AT 6:15 PM                                                                                 IN THE FELLOWSHIP HALL.

Lent is a season for confession, penitence, and introspection. Our 
church's traditional Meager Meal is a simple dinner of vegetable soup 
and bread.  Its purpose is to remind us to simplify our lives and to be 
grateful for our many blessings.  It reminds us of the suffering of 
Jesus as he endured his trial and crucifixion.  Worship Ministries is 
sponsoring the Meager Meal on Ash Wednesday, March 6th at 6:15pm.  Be sure to sign up on the sheet on the rolling bulletin board so that we know how 
many people to expect for the meal. To center your hearts and minds for the Lenten season, be sure to plan enough time to attend the Ash 
Wednesday Service immediately after the Meager Meal at 7 PM.

NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE OR WHERE YOU ARE ON LIFE'S JOURNEY, YOU ARE WELCOME HERE IN THIS UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST.
