Last year we had an extraordinary journey together in Spiritual Formation and our Adult Forum. We learned about spiritual gifts, took a survey and found out about our own spiritual gifts and then, using our 50 hours of Service Booklet, took our gift to the community to share the love of God. Beginning today we will be looking at how to actually “Love our neighbor as our self.” We will be studying the many references to this commandment in the Bible, the story of the Good Samaritan, and we will learn ways together on how to show God’s love through listening. We will also be using our new learning skills to actually “love our neighbors” traveling by twos or threes beyond our own neighborhood. Then, we will return and share our experiences in the Adult Forum. Sound interesting? Join us today at 8:45 a.m. Stay late or come early for your 7:30 or 10:00 a.m. service. We guarantee that you will be blessed!! The Adult formation Committee
Crochet or Knit-a-Bit for Others
Want to use your knitting or crochet skills, or to learn new ones, as part of our Parish ministry to local veterans or the homeless? Join others in the Parish Hall from 11am to 4pm on Saturday, February 1. Bring a brown bag lunch or something to share and choose yarn and materials from the Yarn Bank in the Parish Hall. For more information, contact Roberta Brown or Pam Quarstein.
Altar Flowers for 2020
Each Sunday the flowers on the altar are donated in memory or personal
celebration. If there are any changes or additions to your week, please contact Sue Coleman. Please let the altar guild member know if you want the flowers after the service and they will be put into a container for you.
Otherwise, they can be given to someone who is ill or in need or cheer.
