2023 Stewardship Our 2023 Stewardship campaign will run from February 26 through April 2. Throughout Lent we plan to again have a very active stewardship conversation with our parish family. We will be asking our parish to reflect on their many blessings and offer gifts of their treasure as a thanksgiving to God, who has made all things possible. To that end, we are seeking parishioners to share personal insights and testimonials regarding your own stewardship journeys during each Sunday service’s Stewardship Moment. Please contact Skip Sutcliffe to discuss or arrange the Sunday you can share your thoughts with the parish
Stations of the Cross - Every Friday during Lent at 12pm and 6:30pm.
Lenten Series - Our Lenten series is on Thursday evenings at 6:00pm in the Lower Parish Hall. This series focuses on the Lord’s Prayer. It is such an important part of our faith and worship. We will be looking at several different writers’ perspectives on this prayer. We will gather for food, discussion, and a brief Eucharist to close. I hope you can join us.

New Kitchen Island Top As some of you have noticed, we finally have a new stainless-steel top for the kitchen island! After much difficulty in getting it, a BIG THANK YOU goes to Sid Chanthavisouk for all his help in finishing the top. (It was given to us unfinished.) This top is given in memory of Diane Gutzmer’s Dad – Everett I Weaver.
