Stewardship Thought – Lent 2 - Mark 8:32 – “And he said this plainly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.” Anytime we sin we are acting like Peter: thinking we know better than the Lord. But as Jesus says, such acts stem from Satan. So let us repent: let us trust our Lord Jesus and follow Him. For certainly He has earned our trust with His gracious sacrifice for us.
 
WE STILL NEED A VOLUNTEER TO SIGN UP FOR ALTAR GUILD IN MARCH!
 
4 (yes, 4!) of the furnaces in Church are malfunctioning in one way or other and are needing to be replaced (some may need replacement sooner than others). If you would like to give towards this upcoming project, please mark your gift with “Furnace Replacement”. Thank you for considering to donate to this unexpected expenditure.
 
A Ham Dinner Committee has been formed consisting of Brandy Arndt, Kelly Kurhais, Kelly Booth, Kim Amacher, & Holly Thorne. We are welcoming any suggestions on how we can run this smoothly as a “Drive Thru Event”. We are looking at mid April for a date. Please contact one of these ladies with suggestions.
