Get My People Going: Manna and Quail: Eating God’s Healthy Provisions God blessed the traveling Israelites with manna and quail. Most people who travel today eat in restaurants. It’s surprising how many calories restaurant meals have! The Center for Science in the Public Interest (www.cspinet.org) looked at Italian food chain restaurants and found the calorie count high. A restaurant meal of spaghetti and meatballs, for instance, can contain 1,200 calories—roughly the equivalent of three quarter-pound hamburgers. Most restaurants will provide caloric and other nutritional information upon request. All restaurants do have healthy choices, so ask for what you need. For more information, contact Susan Thorson, Faith Community Nurse 661-9302.

 

Ladies of First United Methodist Church are invited and encouraged to attend other United Methodist Women (UMW) on Monday, March 5th. We will meet in the upper lounge at 1:30 PM for devotions, activities, and a wonderful and timely program presented by Dr. Tom Stanage. A delicious lunch will be served by hostesses Mary Johnson and Jan Aughenbaugh. As we continue to work towards completing our layette and sewing kits you are asked to bring one package of needles & 5-8 matching buttons on a card/tied together. If you would rather contribute to the layette we ask that you bring six cloth diapers and two diaper pins. Your donations go far and wide in this country and around the world to help make life easier and healthier for the less fortunate as we work to increase God's kingdom and share His love. Please flip your calendar to March and mark the date.

 

World Day of Prayer will be celebrated on Friday, March 23rd in the Gathering Place at Majestic Bluffs, 2111 W. 11th St., at 2:00pm. The theme for this year is “All God’s Creation is Very Good” prepared by the ladies of Suriname. Everyone is encouraged to attend this meaningful service.

 Fellowship Coffee Time, Sundays 9:30 to 10:30am. Coffee fellowship between services is a time to relax, welcome guests, and get to know our church family while enjoying something to drink and have a treat. Would you furnish treats for Sunday? We are looking for persons to sign up for a Sunday in March, April, or May. You will need approx. 6 doz. cookies, bars, muffins or donuts or etc. Carol makes the coffee and does the set up. You will serve, do the dishes and clean up. There are extra treats in the freezer that are donated by folks that are not able to serve, so do not worry if there are more people than treats that you brought! There is a sign-up sheet in Wesley Hall or you can call/email the church office or Carol Becker 665 4694/ pcabecker@vyn.midco.net. Thank you to those who have volunteered to provide treats and/or serve in the past.

 

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 and Sunday evenings at 6pm. Childcare will be available, Sunday evenings only.
