Welcome, Ian! 

On Sunday, March 5, Ian Lantka will be dedicated during worship. We're happy to welcome Rabbi Jack Silver for a Jewish Naming Ceremony during the same time.

After worship, we'll have a salad lunch and baby shower, too. Several folks have already volunteered food, but you're invited to sign up for what's still open, or to bring something complementary to what's already listed. 

SS 2.0: What's Coming Up

All opportunities on campus start at 11:20. If we're going to another location, the time becomes a bit more fluid.

March 12: Peter Piper Pizza (on the other side of
                 Chandler/Williams Field)
                 Families with younger kids are
                 especially invited!
March 19: Study for all ages 
March 26: Introduction to Islam with Misbah Rashid
                 Geared toward adults; appropriate for
                 4th grade and older

Pastor's Fund 

The gray buckets will be out on Sunday! Normally, change collected in them on the first Sunday of the month goes to a pastor's fund to help with community requests for assistance like gas or food. During Lent (March & April), the proceeds will go to Feed My Starving Children. Everyone is invited to go pack food on Saturday, May 20; they ask for a donation to help cover the cost of the food we'll be packing. This time, the change will help neighbors a little farther away. 

Bingo Night 

Back by popular demand, we'll have a just for fun Bingo night on Saturday, March 18th at 6:30 p.m. There's no charge for cards, but we'll accept donations toward church camp scholarships. 

Observing Lent

Because our monthly SS 2.0 study has an at-home component, we won't be observing Lent with a calendar or devotional as in previous years. There will be prayer stations set up in the front courtyard each Sunday during Lent. Also, if you weren't at the SS 2.0 study but would like to participate, you can download the take home materials for the Parable of the Sower. You may find the "Need a Bible?" handout helpful as well. 

If you'd like a way to observe Lent in your private devotions, here are some recommendations:
