All women are invited to be a part of the Seekers and Searchers Bible Study group that meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month (except in the summer) at 10:00 am at the church. The first study this year is the book The Last Week by Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan. Rev. Kevin Buchanan will lead the study and discussion. The January meeting is on the 23rd. See Cheryl Moles to purchase the book. If childcare is needed, let Cheryl know.
Magazines are needed for an upcoming project with the children. Please collect the magazines that you no longer want and bring them in to Cheryl’s office.
SOUPER BOWL OF CARING
is February 4. Begin your Super Bowl day with service and fellowship following worship. The youth will be collecting canned soup and ravioli (pull tab cans please)
for the Backpack Program at Meadows School. You can also vote for your favorite team in the Super Bowl with monetary donations to help the hungry. The traditional soup smorgasbord will be served for lunch. What kind of soup are you bringing? Plan to join the fun!
Lent begins in mid February. An Ash Wednesday service will be held at Central on February 14 at 7:00 pm. The Lenten Educational Series will focus on God’s Diverse World with classes for adults, children and youth on Sunday evenings. Details will be coming next week.
