A Christian Friend is not an ordinary friend. There is a bond of love the world does not know. God's Spirit plants the seed and makes the friendship grow. Such a friend you've been in prayer, and in things you do. God's enriched my life and blessed it by a Christian friend like you. I always thank God as I remember you in prayer.

We will be offering Drive Thru Ashes again this year on Wednesday, Febraury 10 from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm. Use the covered entryway on Warren Street. Stay in the car while receiving the ashes and a prayer: Then go on your way. This is a new approach to an old tradition. Ash Wednesday begins the Holy Season of Lent, a time for reflection, repentance and an invitaiton to receive God's forgiveness in preparation for celebrating Easter. Perhaps you've been longing to reconnect with God through Christ and Drive Thru Ashes gives you the opportunity to begin that connection anew.
The free Community Meal is held weekly on Thursday's at 5:30 pm in Fellowship Hall. All are Welcome. We hope to see you there!
