LIFE – Living In Faith Everyday – This is a new Family Ministry Program for 2015. Church attendance and participation help children grow and learn in a worship community, but parents or guardians and family members are the primary religious educators. Children develop their faith every day through the examples of their parents and other adults. There will be 8 programs throughout the year to celebrate as a family the faith formation that occurs in your home. Please attend as you are able. The next is Tuesday, February 17 from 5:30 – 7:00pm. It will be centers to learn more about Ash Wednesday and Lent so that you can come and go at the times that work for you. The palms from last year will be burned for ashes at 6:30 pm. It is Shrove Tuesday, so there will be pancakes will for supper. There will be NO T3EM because many commissions are not meeting on that night, but rather for the officer retreat on Saturday, Feb. 21.
Lenten Devotionals and Praying in Color Calendars are available in fellowship hall and the sanctuary.
