First Communion Classes: Sundays March 1st and 8th after worship at 11:20a.m. in the Chapel I am inviting all young people in about 3rd grade or older to two classes on the Lord’s Supper. I will leave it up to parents as to when you think your child is ready to receive holy communion. The book we use, “A Place for You” by Pastor Dan Erlander is written at about a 3rd grade reading level. We will also look up some Bible passages and each student is asked to create a first communion project out of paper/clay/fabric/wood/legos/paint or just about anything. If there are students older than 3rd grade, who are not yet receiving the bread and wine of the Lord’s Supper, but would like to, you are certainly welcome to join in. The plan would be for students to receive their first communion on March 15th, or any time after that. Please let Pastor Dennis know if you are coming and plan to attend both classes.

Munch Madness We are unsure if Munch Madness will be happening this year, through the community. We would like to show our support to FISH. and do something in house. We will be collecting cans of soup and protein items such as beef stew, chili, chili mac, ravioli, corned beef hash and chicken & dumplings. We would like to provide the Food Bank with about 50 cans a week.
