Flowers for today are provided by Dennis & Cathy Hickman in memory of Cathy’s dad, Ed Koschalk.

The Wednesday Soup and Bread Supper will be hosted this week by members of the Congregational Life. Please join us at 6:00 p.m. for a delicious meal. At 6:45 we’ll engage in some Bible Study around tables. With some help from John Hiigel’s “Partnering with the King” we’ll read and discuss some passages in the Gospel of Matthew. Then at 7:10 pm we’ll move into the sanctuary for a 20 minute Holden Evening Prayer service. Come as you are to these fun and informal evenings of good food, fellowship, Bible study and worship. The following ministries are hosting soup suppers:

Munch Madness: In an effort to support our local food bank we are holding our first annual Ellensburg Morning Rotary Munch Madness competition. The goal is to engage the Ellensburg area business and organizations in a friendly competition against each other to raise food for F.I.S.H. Food Bank. We collected 445 pounds of food for F.I.S.H. in the first week of the competition. Thank you for your continued support of F.I.S.H.
