Winter Doings

On February 10th we kicked off our annual stewardship campaign, which runs through March. Each of us must give as we have made up our minds, not reluctantly or under compulsion. For God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:7)

Coming up in March:

  • Lenten Dinners and Discussion: The first dinner will be held on Ash Wednesday (March 6) and the discussion series will begin on March 13 and conclude on April 10. Sessions will begin at 5:30 pm with a meal and discussion will be had from 6:00 to 7:00 pm. This year’s topic is titled “Who Cares for the Environment?”and will deal with individual and communal encounters with the rest of creation and examine our place in that system as a church.
  • Results of the Identity Project: Starting last September and continuing through January, we conducted 15 small group discussions and completed 125 questionnaires with “people in the pews” to learn what they value about our church and what their hopes are for the future. The report will be presented at the Annual Meeting March 31st.
