Join us this Friday, February 22nd for our Community Dinner beginning at 5:00 p.m. in our Social Hall.  This month’s dinner is hosted by our United Methodist Men.  All are welcome.


To begin our observance of the holy season of Lent, we will be having a special Ash Wednesday Worship Service on Wednesday evening March 6 at 7:00 p.m. in the Chapel.  During the service, the traditional imposition of ashes will be placed on the foreheads of those in attendance (symbolizing our human finitude and mortality) in that it is from the ashes and dust of the earth that we came into being and that it is back to ashes and dust that we will one day return.

This solemn, yet poignant service of worship will mark the beginning of the forty days of Lent — a season calling us to spiritual introspection, repentance and renewal so that we may be properly prepared to participate in the passion, death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Everyone is cordially invited and encouraged to take part.
