Last chance! Sign up after worship or in the office. FREE ADMISSION
Pancake supper! Dixieland Jazz by Coal Creek Jazz!
Pancake races for the young and young at heart!
Alleluias to decorate and put away until Easter morning!
Chancel Flowers. Sign up to bring flowers for Sunday worship! The calendar is outside the office. Remember that you are now responsible for ordering the flowers from wherever you would like (or cutting them in your yard or the church's new flower garden) and bringing them to church before the service. Also, please note that we do not have flowers in worship during Lent. Thank you!
Prayer Chain Team. Join our prayer team, a way for people to gain assistance in prayer for anything weighing on their heart. Prayer is a way for us to reach out of ourselves, to put aside our loneliness and pain for the sake of another. And we know prayer is powerful! Please mark Making Connections if you would like to be a part of our prayer team!
Crossroads Feeding: If you took a card for needed food donations last Sunday, please place the food in the large kitchen. Thank you!
A Great Sunday Dining Option!
Next time you want a tasty, low-cost lunch after church, check out Café Jawhara at the Redmond Mosque, open daily (not Saturday) from 11:30 am to 4:30 pm. Savory lamb, gyros, and hamburgers are all on the menu for $8 or add a salad and rice for $2. Plus, the complementary sweet mint tea is delish!
Why not get out of your bubble and try something a bit different? The mosque is located at 17550 NE 67th Court, just south of 520 and east of the East Lake Sammamish exit. Ten minutes from church!
Lenten Small Groups start this week on Thursday! There are several groups and one if probably right for you! If you’d like to sign up, please see Phyllis Borland or Laurie Edwards.
Books, “John: The Gospel of Light and Life”, are still available in the back of the sanctuary for $15. Even if you aren’t in a small group, why not make reading it one of your spiritual disciplines for Lent?
Prayers of the People
Holy God, we look to you with tremendous thanksgiving for all the blessings of this life. Some of us are young and first learning to love you. Some of us are old and have loved you all of our lives. We do our best to love one another as Jesus taught us to do, showed us how to do. We fail miserably so often, but you do not fail us. You continue to love us and to prod us to love all the more. Thank you for trusting us with this greatest of all human graces: the ability to love.
Continue you Presence with us, through us. As Duane Hirsch moves from hospital to Mission for shoulder rehabilitation, he and Shirley feel your love. As Zorka learns to live with diminished eyesight, she knows your love. As any of us moves through a transition in our lives, we know your love. All we have to do is close our eyes and summon a vision of this community of faith — in worship, at play, in service to others, in grief, and in joy, and we know you are with us. For these and all your blessings, we give thanks in the name of Jesus our Lord, and your Holy Spirit, our companion in this life. Amen.
