The month of March promises warmer weather, although we are probably not longing for that as we have in other years since this winter has not been harsh at all. The time will change on March 8th so we will have longer afternoons to be out and enjoy the outdoors. With the outdoors, we will enjoy the beauty of spring and all that comes with the blooms, blossoms, flowers, leaves and yes, even pollen. I encourage you to get outside and enjoy the Spring.
This month also brings two important meetings in the life of our church. The first is our Spring Semi-Annual Business Meeting on Sunday, March 8th. We will meet at 9:30 AM in the Fellowship Hall. The second is our Semi-Annual Celebration of Ministry. This will take place on Sunday, March 22nd during the morning worship service. This will also take place in the Fellowship Hall so that we can show pictures of the different ministries that our church is involved in. Please make every effort to be at both of those important times as we meet and celebrate what God is doing among us.
We are also in the season of Lent as we prepare for Holy Week and Easter. I will be preaching from Matthew the first Sunday and then the rest of the month I will be focusing on passages from the Gospel of John. I hope that you will make plans to worship with us as often as you can during the Season of Lent.
