Notes from the Pastor


A reminder to all that this Sunday’s 10:00 AM service is a “Center Celebration” with our worship band and a more informal setting. A choral eucharist service will be held at 8:30 AM.

Lent begins March 6 with an Ash Wednesday service at 7:00 PM. The following five weeks in Lent will be observed with a 7:00 PM vespers service on each Wednesday (March 13, 20, 27; April 3, 10). A dinner at 6:00 PM will precede the service. To carry on this tradition of dinners we need several volunteers to prepare a simple meal (often soup and salad) for 20-30 people. The first Wednesday is accounted for; so we need four more volunteers (individuals or teams) to fill out the schedule. Can you help?

Soon after Easter (April 21) will come the church’s semi-annual meeting. The Spring meeting is when we elect officers and congregation council members. Due to four council members stepping away from the Council after a number of years of exceptional service, we face a greater than usual challenge in order to fill out the Congregation Council. The vacant positions will be: Hospitality, Finance, Youth, and Adult Education. It is vital for the direction and well-being of the congregation that we maintain a strong level of lay leadership, which has always been a fundamental strength of the congregation. Please consider if you could serve as a council member.
