Then he began to speak, and he taught them, saying...-Matthew 5:1-2

Dear Friends in Christ,
The 40 days of Lent have arrived. How might your spirit be nourished by Jesus' teaching?
Pickup of Lenten materials (free devotion books for adults and children, ashes for home imposition, communion elements, flyers for at-home soup suppers) was held Sunday, Feb 14, but there is still time...and plenty of resources left. Stop by the church office
between the hours of 8-12noon.
As we continue to learn new ways of being the Body of Christ together, questions arise. If you are in need of pastoral care, would like to visit the church sanctuary, or have a different request, all you need can be arranged by appointment
The Lenten theme for 2021 is
The Best Sermon I Ever Heard: Exploring the Sermon on the Mount
. Below you will find an invitation to pause in reflection this Ash Wednesday. Please consider joining us either on the

With prayers for you always,
Pastor Heidi Heimgartner & Pastor Mike Walerius
PS One blessing of this time is that we can participate from far and wide. Please-go ahead & forward this email to interested friends & family.
