Last week Jesus is telling his disciple Peter, “get behind me Satan.” This week Jesus is driving people OUT of the temple. Isn’t it better to have people in the church in order to get more people involved? Why is Jesus doing this?
Pray for Shari Helfrich, Pat Blistan, Ethel Moschak, Natalie Gardner, Dorothy Tokarski, Eugene Borio, Darlene Hoffman, Sara Margo, Judi Strini, Barb Cotton, Alice Skirda, Carol Deily, Kristen Hughes, Marti Krause, Lois Thomas and Marjorie Hager.
For obvious reasons regarding Covid, we will not be having Lenten soup suppers on Wednesday evenings. We will be having mid-week service this Wed. at 7 p.m.
In the event you know someone who is unable or reticent to attend in person will be online services available for both churches.
Celebrating birthdays this week: Friday- Hadley Varner (granddaughter of Ed and Carol Maletic)
As always, if there is a celebration missing from the list, please let pastor know.
It has come to our attention that my wife Nancy had contact with someone this past week regarding her place of work who was just diagnosed with Covid 19. Nancy herself shows no symptoms, but due to pastor’s closeness to her, it would not be wise for him to endanger anyone this Sunday. So to be cautious, we will not be having service at either of the churches this Sunday, March 7.
