SERIES OF
LENTEN FAITH SHARING
& POTLUCK SUPPERS

Please bring a dish to share.
How do we cope with pain & suffering?
The series begins on Wednesday, March 13 at 6pm and will take place the following four Wednesdays. This Lenten season we will focus on how we respond to suffering and pain. We will engage a handful of the most prominent working theologians today. Each session will begin with a potluck dinner (please bring a dish to share) followed by a brief video presentation leading into a group discussion. We will conclude each session at 7pm.

ThriftSignNew COMMUNITY THRIFT STORE
The thrift store has relocated to the basement of our church. We are asking for people to work in the store. If you could just give 4 hours of your time each month on either Thursday or Friday, this would be a great help to us. If enough people help, we would not have to work more than once a month.
It will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
— Mona Cole

COMMUNITY LUNCH
We can always use a helping hand on the first and last Saturdays of every month. You get back more then you give when helping others.
