Announcements for 2/21
During this Lenten season, we will emphasize our prayer life and the power of prayer. Each week we will emphasize various groups of God’s children. Today and this week we pray especially for those who are cold wet and hungry; for first liners: EMT’s, firefighters, police, deputies; for those who are forgotten, so that they can be remembered.
We continue to respond to the needs of our neighbors with food and clothing. A box has been placed in the Narthex for you to place your gifts of nonperishable food items, or gently used clothing, placement of your donations of food and monetary donations. All of your donations will be further distributed through Sharing God’s Love.
We continue to worship in the sanctuary and ask that you please observe the social distancing guidelines and wear your mask. Should you not have one, it will be provided for you. We continue to reach our members who may feel safer at home and to all others outside our community via Facebook live.
Quote of the week:
Prayer is not a device for getting our wills done through heaven, but a desire that God’s will may be done on earth through us.
