This Week March 13, 2018

Dear Folks,

Well, the nor'easter wasn't as wicked as expected, a good thing!

Quiet Hour will continue tomorrow morning at 10 a.m.

The Ecumenical Lenten Dinner and Service this Wednesday will be at First Baptist Church. Dinner is at 6 p.m., the service at 7 p.m.

Thursday, March 15 is my prayer day. Please let me know if you have any joys or concerns you would like me to lift up.

Women’s Fellowship will hold their Annual Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner this coming Saturday, March 17th at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $13 for adults and $8 for children 10yrs. old and under. Hot dog dinners: two hot dogs w/vegetables are $8 and one hot dog w/chips is $4.00. If interested, please call the church office ASAP!

This Sunday, March 18 is the Fifth Sunday in Lent. The scripture is Jeremiah 31:31-34. The sermon is "A New Covenant". We will also be having a Bag Message with Lukas Zinsky bringing the bag!

Women’s Fellowship will be preparing Manhattan and New England Clam Chowder and a variety of homemade breads. To place your order, sign up on the sheet in the alcove or call the church office at (203) 929-1223.  Pick-up will be on Sunday, March 25th. Chowder is $10.00 per quart. The prices on the homemade breads vary.

Please check the sign-up sheets in the Alcove for our upcoming Maundy Thursday events.  Reservation are needed for the Seder dinner.  2 readers are still needed for the Seder.

Women's Fellowship is collecting items for Church World Service Kits now through April 8th. A full list of these Items can be found on the CWS table in Fellowship Hall. Also, your donations can be left in the CWS box or Women’s Fellowship box. Please see Laura Salvio with any questions.

Let us pray.
O God, may you give us...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer. Amen. (adapted from a traditional Irish prayer)

In Christ's love,
Rev. Lucille
