Sermon from Sunday, March 3, 2019

How can we be sure?

Texts:

Exodus 34:29–35 Moses returns from Sinai with the law, and his face is shining.

Luke 9:28–36 (37–43a) On a mountaintop, Jesus is transfigured; God says: This is my Son.

Pancake Breakfast and Ash Wednesday Dinner

As we prepare for our Lenten journeys, Community Breakfast on March 3 will be our annual Shrove Sunday pancake feast. 
Bring some fatty foods to share or just come and eat.
We will continue to have time to share what we have been learning in our education programs.
Some will need to leave a little early for choir rehearsal.

Then on March 6, we will gather again for dinner in the sanctuary (with meat and vegetarian options), before an Ash Wednesday Service in the Community Room.
This will be a time to reflect on our upcoming theme of Awareness for Lent and to receive the blessing of anointing.

Please use the following sign-up sheet to let us know if you can come.
