Daylight Saving Time

It’s time to Spring Forward! Daylight Saving Time begins at 2:00 AM on Sunday, March 10. Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead one hour before you go to bed on Saturday night.

 

Sunday Forum for Lent

Please join us on Sundays at 9:30 AM in the parish hall during Lent to explore Forty Days – a Lenten series by The Work of The People. Using this beautiful video series, we will explore a series of poems about Lent and Holy Week designed to invite us to go on the journey of the heart, through the wilderness, to Palm Sunday, Holy Week, Good Friday, and into the hope of Easter. Series begins March 10. This week’s poem is titled “Never Alone.” Come check it out!

 

Lenten Compline

The compline choir will offer a sung service of Compline on Sunday, March 10 at 7:30 PM. This short contemplative candle-lit service will be the perfect way to close your day.

 

Ecumenical Service & Lunch

At noon each Wednesday in Lent, we gather with members of other churches in our community for worship and a light lunch. (Suggested donation is $5.) The service on March 13 will be held at St. Paul United Methodist Church.

Please note that there will be no 12:10 PM service in our chapel during Lent.

 

Women’s Book Study

Do you ever feel like you don’t enjoy anything because you’re trying to do everything? Then join us for the next Women’s Book Study to explore Sandra Stanley’s Breathing Room. This four-week study will show you how, with one surprisingly simple invitation, God offers a way to trade your overwhelming pace for one that will finally bring you peace. We’ll meet on Wednesday evenings from 5:00 – 6:00 PM in the conference room, beginning March 13.

Program David Smith is retiring on March 25 after a 30-year association with Center Point, where he has been executive director since 1993. Though originally the brainchild of a few local churches, created with the purpose of providing off-site religion classes to public school students, the Center has slowly transformed into arguably Hall County’s most successful and diverse student-and-family-centered non-profit. Their mission is simple: enhance, strengthen, and change lives.

David has been tireless in his desire to make this community a stronger and more compassionate place-recognizing the critical responsibility to educate, support, and counsel young people in today’s world. Come hear more about Center Point, and take the opportunity to thank David for his great work, following dinner on March 13.
