Gardenkeepers!
 
We need help to maintain the church garden areas. We will begin in MArch, weather permitting, cleaning up winter debris.
We need people who like gentle weeding, which can be done with flexible hours, or at your leisure.
As the weather warms, we will also need people to cut the grass.
Contact Caryn Turek.

MAUNDY THURSDAY SERVICE
Thursday, March 29, 7:30 PM
in Sanctuary


This is a solemn, profound time of reflection on the betrayal and abandonment of Jesus.  The service begins with lit candles.  The pastor, readers and people come into the Sanctuary in silence.  Prayers are woven with Scriptures and music.  After each reading, a candle is snuffed out. Finally, only one candle is left and the people leave in silence.  All are welcome.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
GOOD FRIDAY SERVICE

in Sanctuary


"The Seven Last Words of Christ"
 Seven individuals from our church family will each give a five minute homily on one of the Seven Last Words of Christ. 
Please enter and leave silently.
All are welcome.

EASTER SUNDAY SERVICE

SIMCHAT OLAM
BASIC Worship Dance Group

Meet at church; contact Laura Salch for dates & times
Would you like to worship the Lord with dance?
Would you like to learn how?
This group is more about meeting the Lord in our personal worship times than about dancing as a group. Some may not even be able to meet on Fridays, and that's all right.
There is however a value in meeting as a group for fellowship, support and ideas. 
All ages and abilities are welcome!
If you need free materials (a binder and a CD), or if you would like to meet privately to get started, please contact Laura Salch.
