Women, wear your red dress on this day to highlight Heart Disease Awareness and Education in Women.
WALKING FOR LENT
During Lent many use this time to practice “giving up” something while others may practice “taking up” something. What if you could do both? This Lenten season, the Health Ministry Committee invites you to “take up” healthy eating while “giving up some” of the ingredients and cooking practices that make our food less healthy. Starting Sunday, February 11th, every week, there will be a week’s worth of recipes available from the “Seasoning Lent” cookbook from Church Health. This cookbook includes healthy recipes, reflections, and prayer. The recipes are not only healthy but also easy and family friendly. These weekly packets of recipes will be in the Narthex each Sunday. Please take one per family. Please let Amy Goodson know if more copies are needed. Also, we will be starting a Lenten walking devotional starting Saturday, February 17th at 10:00 a.m. in Fellowship Hall. Please contact Amy Goodson if you are interested in participating and if you need a devotional.
Ash Wednesday Services
Again this year we are offering an additional worship service for Ash Wednesday at 12:00 noon. This will be a simpler type service with no music for those that do not wish to drive in the evening or maybe due to a work schedule. In the evening will be a full liturgical service at 7:00 p.m. Both services will have the Imposition of Ashes and Holy Communion.
In an attempt to increase the congregation’s giving to Synod Apportionment, the Church Council approved that the offerings received during our Mid-week Lenten Wednesday night worship services go toward our S.C. Synod Apportionment.
