2023 Event Brainstorming - March 19th

Do you have ideas for events we would all enjoy in 2023? Join Christine and and others in a brainstorming session during coffee hour in Miller Hall on March 19th.

Almsgiving in Lent

The challenge is to give beyond our planned gifts. Three weeks ago, we started with $1 in the basket. The amount doubles each week until Easter.  Sunday, 03/26/2023, the challenge is for $16 each. 

Almsgiving is different than tithing or giving money to the church. Almsgiving is giving money to the poor. It is when we respond to the needs of those experiencing suffering by doing something to aid them. The bottom line is to do more than we’re doing now, because Jesus commands our compassion and generosity, and particularly toward the poor and neglected.

Living Lent: Meditations for these Forty Days

By Barbara Cawthorne Crafton

For centuries the words and poetry of our hymns have spoken to us of God. Many people, in fact, find that what is heard in poetry and music sinks more deeply into the soul than anything else. And so it is to the beautiful seasonal hymns (1982 Hymnal) that Barbara Cawthorne Crafton turns for inspiration for daily meditations during this great devotional season of the church year.
