Ash Wednesday, March 2nd

"Remember, O mortal, that you are dust and to dust you shall return."

Ash Wednesday is the day that marks the beginning of our 40 days of Lent, walking alongside Jesus as He makes His way to Jerusalem and to His death and resurrection. It has traditionally been a time of spiritual renewal, a time of taking stock, a time of renewal.

We invite you to observe Ash Wednesday by attending our Ash Wednesday service at 7pm on March 2nd. We are also offering Ashes To Go on Wednesday morning from 7-9am in the Sanctuary, if you wish to stop by before your work day to receive ashes and have some time for prayer and quiet contemplation.

Dobstaff Pantry Clean Out

We cleaned out the pantry in Dobstaff! There are lots of items that we no longer need. Check out the tables by the windows in Dobstaff to see if you can repurpose any of the items (vases, baskets, misc kitchen etc.).

Any items still remaining will be donated to charity at the beginning of March.

SCRIP Program Changes

It was announced in the Annual Meeting that the Scrip program is not bringing in enough money to keep running it the way we have been. 

We will now only take physical card orders on the first Sunday of every month. The first Sunday will give you an opportunity to order reloadable cards along with other physical cards you may need. You will be able to place your own personal orders online anytime (instructions are below) for virtual eCards and Reloads on existing cards, and pay from your own checking account for only $.15 per order. Scrip sends us the rebates from online orders the first week of every month.
