'SOUP'er Bowl Collection for the ML Food Bank
With the big December holidays behind us, the food supplies at the food bank start becoming depleted; last Sunday's big game is one way to be reminded of this need. Please bring a can or two (or more!) of soup to church any Sunday in February. Other non-perishable foods are welcome as well, to be donated to the food bank in March.
ASH WEDNESDAY and the LENTEN SEASON
Ash Wednesday Service: Note: Time change: 7:15 PM -- Since so much of the service is the Lord's Supper and the imposition of Ashes, we will not have a FB Live broadcast of the Ash Wednesday service. The sermon audio recording will be posted on our page at Buzzsprout, however.
>>Due to virus precautions, we will forego the tradition of gathering before the Lenten services for the simple soup & bread suppers at the church for now. You might consider a smaller gathering of 2-3 families at someone's home instead, as far as you are comfortable.
Wednesdays during Lent: Feb. 24, March 3, 10, 17, & 24 -- Lenten Services at 7:00 PM, in person/Facebook LIVE.
Palm Sunday: regular Sunday service (Palms distributed on Saturday like last year). Palm Sunday Brunch is an option for us if the county remains in Phase 2.
Holy Week: Maundy Thursday Service, with the Lord's Supper, April 1, 7 PM; Good Friday Service, April 7, 7:00 PM
Easter Sunday: April 3, 9:00 AM -- if you are willing/able to supply special music (vocal, instrumental), let us know!
