Walking to Jerusalem:  We started our walk on March 1st and will reach Jerusalem by Pentecost, May 24th.  Please don’t forget to hand in your mileage each week.

Lenten Prayer ServiceJohn Calvin wrote that “prayer is properly understood as an emotion of the heart within, which is poured out and laid open before God, the searcher of hearts.”  Each Wednesday from March 4th-April 1st, 6:00-6:45 p.m., you are invited to come and lay open before God our hearts as we pray for the world, our communion, our church, our family, and friends.

Please Help!:  We are collecting candy donations for the Easter Egg Hunt (small, individually-wrapped candies) to put in the plastic eggs.  There is a box in the Narthex for the candy.  If you would like to donate candy, please bring it in by Sunday, March 29thThanks!

1st Annual Easter Bonnet Contest!:  Women and girls, bring in your hand-decorated Easter bonnet on Easter Sunday, April 5th (we will display them in the narthex).  Judges will judge on appearance and creativity.  Good luck and have fun!

Plain Change Ministry:  Please continue to empty your pockets/ purses to help our neighbors in need.  Thank you for your support!

One Great Hour of SharingDuring the season of Lent, members are asked to give generously to this special offering, which goes to support relief efforts in our country and throughout the world.  Please use the special envelope included in this bulletin and the Easter Sunday bulletin.  This offering will be collected during the worship service on Easter Sunday, April 5th.  Please plan to contribute to this worthwhile cause.
