First February Weekly Connection!

Have you noticed that the sun is setting later?  Spring is coming!

First off, a HUGE thank you to the Hospitality Team for a delicious Souper Sunday last weekend!  Many different soups and breads to choose from, and good fellowship around the tables.  Plus, the desserts…

It was good to get important information distributed and discussed prior to the Annual Meeting on February 14th.  Please remember to look over those materials. As always, there will be a time for questions and answers at the meeting.

Sunday morning worship begins at 10.00.  This is a Communion Sunday, and our Helping Hands offering is also received.  If you typically participate in this offering, please look for an envelope in your Sunday bulletin.  Great music, message, and prayers and praises are all part of our service.

Meg, Anna, Deb B., and Linda are this week’s volunteers in the Kids’ Connection.  Coffee time follows in Veno Hall – be sure and check out the bulletin board outside of the kitchen, and sign up where you are able to help out.  🙂  Thanks to everyone who has been helping out in a variety of ways to continue making coffee time a success!

Church Council is reminded of the meeting on Monday, February 8th, at 7.00p in the Ruth Room across from the office.

What is Ash Wednesday?  The start of a season… an opportunity for prayer and reflection… a remembrance of our brokenness before a holy God.  On the calendar Ash Wednesday appears forty days before the miracle of Easter.  If you sit down in front of a calendar you will discover that there are more than forty days between Ash Wednesday and Easter – that’s because we don’t count the intervening Sundays… since every Sunday is a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus.  Next Wednesday the sanctuary will be open from 6pm to 7:30pm for a quiet time to pray.

Looking ahead…
Friday, February 12th:  Singspiration (7.30p)
Saturday, February 13th:  Women’s Book Study (2.00p)
Sunday, February 14th:  Annual Meeting (and Valentine’s Day)
Saturday, February 20th: WISH Meeting with guest speaker (9am)
Sunday February 21st:  Family Date Time at the Walpole Mall (12:15pm)

A little reminder, the altar flowers may be given to recognize a special person or event.  Cost is $30, and the flowers are delivered to the church on Saturday afternoon.  You are welcome to take your flowers with you following the worship service.  See the bulletin board outside the kitchen for sign-up sheets.

Serving on Sunday:
Greeter:  Jessica Eagles
Ushers/ Communion:  Rich Carter, Steve Carter, Cindy Frank, Georgia Shaw
Kid’s:  Anna, Deb B., Linda, Meg

I think that is all for now.  Enjoy your day!  Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday
