Flowers for today are given by the Ringe Family in honor of Don & Ann Ringe’s 60th Anniversary. Please join us after worship for cake.

Bob & Ida Malde express their thanks for the prayers and cards received during Bob’s surgery and recovery.

Choir will meet on Wednesday, March 27th at 7:00p.m. this week only.

Easter Breakfast: Please check out the sign-up sheets in the Fellowship Hall, It’s time to prepare for our annual Easter Breakfast and Egg Hunt. We need lots of help to make it work. If you can provide food, candy, and hopefully help out in the kitchen, it would be appreciated! Youth and parents—we especially need your help but all others are welcome to take part as well. There are several shifts so it won’t take up too much of your morning and all will be able to attend one of the services.

The set up time will be Saturday, March 30th at 2:00 p.m. and right now there are only a few people signed up to help. (It won’t take long with a few more people.) We also need a little more help in the kitchen. Can you come to do a (short) shift on Sunday morning? Please sign up to help. Thank you!

Sunday School: There will be no Sunday School classes for children and youth during Spring Break, March 17and 24, or on Easter Sunday, March 31. Classes will resume on April 7. (Adults will meet on the 17th & 24th, but not on Easter Sunday, March 31.)

The United Methodist Women invite you to attend their annual “White Breakfast” on Maundy Thursday, March 28 at 9:30 a.m. Through the beauty of music and a message from Pastor Shalom Agtarap, we will strive to better understand the events of Holy Week.

Lenten Prayer for Hungry People Holy Week March 24-30

Isaiah 50:4-9a Philippians 2:5-11 Psalm 31:9-16 Luke 22:14-23:56

Then Jesus, crying with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commend my spirit.” Having said this, he breathed his last. When the centurion saw what had taken place, he praised God and said, “Certainly this man was innocent.” —Luke 23:46-47

But I trust in you, O Lord …. My times are in your hand …. Let your face shine upon your servant; save me in your steadfast love. —Psalm 31:14a, 15a, 16

Prayer: O God, your Son gives up his life for us so that we might live in your steadfast love. May we so trust the new life you give to us that we never grow weary in helping those in need create a better future for them­selves, their families, and their communities. Amen.
