Today was a joyous day in worship as we welcomed 7 new members into our wonderful church family. Some old friends and some new, but either way it is wonderful to see our Still Speaking God active in the life of the church! We had 71 in worship this morning, the children went for a hike around the sanctuary listening and looking for lions and tigers and bears, Oh My!, and we welcomed all to the table in the Sacrament of Holy Communion.
We will begin our journey through Lent this Wednesday evening with a combined Ash Wednesday service with Trinity United Methodist Church in Republic. The service will begin at 7 p.m. at Republic UCC. Rev. Hicks and I have a special service planned. A short service of reflection. A service in which we will be able to reflect on several aspects of Lent, breathing in the breath of God, letting go of those things that get between you and the Lord, and what the journey to the cross means to you. We hope to see you on Wednesday.
Sunday, February 26th we will join together in fellowship with a potluck following worship and I will be showing pictures and talking about my trip to India. Bring your favorite dish and join us for some fun and fellowship!
