Pancakes & Ashes

We have a busy two days ahead of us!

Tonight: 6:00 p.m. in the Lower Church Hall, pig out on pancakes and sausages! Cost is $8 per person, less for kids (little kids are free). To be followed by the Burning of the Palms. If you saved your palms from last year's Palm Sunday, bring them to the fire to be turned into ashes for Ash Wednesday.

Tomorrow: 7:30 p.m.--Ash Wednesday service, marking the beginning of Lent, the 40 days of repentance and contemplation leading up to Easter.

Pat yourselves on the back

The score is final: We raised over $330 on Sunday through the Souper Bowl of Caring offering. Thanks to everyone who contributed, either directly or by wearing your team's name and upping the contribution that way (or both).

One could argue that God intervened in the football game that night to allow the Giants to win to reward all the fans in our congregation for their Souper Bowl support. Because we all know the Pats would have won without divine intervention.

But it's probably best not to make that argument. (Pitchers & catchers report for spring training next week: Go Sox!)
