GREAT THANKSGIVING

    The Lord be with you.

         And also with you.

Lift up your hearts.

         We lift them up to the Lord.

     Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

         It is right to give our thanks and praise.

     And so, with your people on earth, and all the company of heaven, we praise your        name and join their unending hymn, saying:

         Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, heaven and earth are full of                             your glory. Hosanna in the highest! Blessed is the one who comes in the name                of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!

     And so, in remembrance of these your mighty acts of love and grace, we offer             ourselves in praise and thanksgiving, as children of your covenant, in union with      Christ’s love for us, as we proclaim the mystery of faith.

         Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again.

LENTEN STUDY

Did you know that when we hope for the impossible, it involves more than praying for God’s transcendent power? There are two components to every miracle: divine action and human responsibility. Each of us has been given specific talents and abilities. For a real miracle to take place, God expects us to apply these talents and abilities—acting with God to perform divine work. By examining biblical examples of how to use your God-given gifts for God’s glory, author and Pastor Mike Slaughter helps you discover that you, too, were Made for a Miracle.

We will have two time options for you to choose from for the Lenten study this year. Thursday mornings at 10:30am starting Feb. 15th and Sunday evenings at 6pm starting Feb. 18th. Childcare will be available, Sunday evenings only.

The Annual Turkey Supper will be held Saturday, February 17th. We will serve from 4:30 to 7:00pm. Proceeds from this year’s supper will go to the Sr. High Youth for their Youth Mission trip to Racine, WI in June. We will be asking committees to help this year as has been done in the past along with the youth, we will be selling tickets at the door.  Cost of the tickets will be Adults tickets (13 and older) $10; children (4-12 year olds) $5 and 3 and under will be free. Sign-up sheets are available in Wesley Hall for donations. Please have donations brought to the church by Sunday, February 11th. Turkeys can be brought to the church and placed in the chest freezer in the Sr. High Youth room anytime now through February 6th  – please sign your name to the donation list on the top of the freezer so we know who has brought their turkeys. Don’t forget to mark your calendars and plan to join us for some wonderful food and fellowship.
