Children and Youth Sunday School     

 

 

 

 

 

  The Children and Youth Sunday School classes worked  on art work

         for the hallway downstairs. It was on display in Fellowship Hall. 

“Sharing Our Love for God” was the theme used for creating the art work. What a great project. 

 

Ash Wednesday Service

 

March 6th at 7:00 pm Ash Wednesday Service will be held.

 

 

Lenten Study

 

              A Lenten Study will begin Tuesday, March 12th at 7:00 pm. It will continue each Tuesday through April 16th.

  The book, Simon Peter, by Adam Hamilton will be used for this study. Simon Peter was an ordinary fisherman who 

      transformed into a follower of Jesus.  He was faithful, yet flawed. Discover how you, too, have special gifts, talents,

and abilities that God can use to make a difference today. The book is available in the office. 

 

From NE District Superintendant, Paul Wilcox

 

 

Down in Greeley’s basement I found a beautiful gem.  A sign on the wall says simply: “FEAR NOT TOMORROW.  GOD IS ALREADY THERE.”
These are important words to take to heart – especially as the Special General Conference gathers in St. Louis. The collective blood pressure of 8 million United Methodists just went up.  How will the vote go?  What will be approved?  Will our denomination fracture?  Will our local church split?  Can my church survive a schism?  What if Pastor and church don’t agree?  What if the Special General Conference doesn’t approve anything?  What will the future bring? 
I don’t have the answers to these questions, but I can say with confidence that whatever tomorrow may bring, I will not be afraid because God is already there!  God truly does work in all things, turning and shaping them for good. 
Whatever this coming week brings, God will be smack dab in the middle of it, bringing us a future with a hope, not a fear. 
Keep the Faith,
Work like it all depends upon us and pray like it all depends upon GOD.
Paul
