Walking With the Spirit: The Heart of Prayer
Mark your calendars and plan to attend our full-day conference on prayer, Walking With the Spirit, on Saturday, April 27, 2013. Cost will be $30 and pre-registration will be a must since our space is limited. Lunch and break beverages will be included. Watch for more information about workshop details and registration information.
The Rev. Mark Bartusch, Associate Professor of Theology at Valparaiso University, will present at the general session at the beginning of the day. The focus for his keynote address and his workshops will be on the Psalms, those beautiful and often puzzling poems, songs and laments. Other workshops will include journaling, walking prayer, and other ways to incorporate prayer in your daily life. The Good Bookstore from the Episcopal Diocese will be with us that day offering books and other materials related to the conference topics. We will begin and end the day with worship in the sanctuary.
Volunteers are needed to help with hospitality, registration and lunch service, to cook up pots of soup or bar cookies for lunch (recipes will be provided), and set-up on Friday. Let me know if you would like to lend a hand. Contact Avis Hooper at 244-8718 or: firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up or learn more.
Labors of LOVE
Labors of Love is an annual crafts and food fair with over 20 vendors selling high quality homemade artisan items, as well as homemade pies, cookies, jams, ornaments and more made by talented church members. A delicious lunch of homemade soups, sandwiches, and quiches is available as well.
Each year a different local charity is selected as the recipient of the proceeds. This year's charity is the South Wedge Mission
The next Labors of Love is Saturday, November 1, 9:30 to 4.
Volunteers from the church organize a Rummage Sale each Spring to benefit different agencies in our community.
Wednesday Evening Lenten Suppers & Devotions gather the community for soup, salad, bread and dessert in simple fashion and in keeping with the season. Participants sign up to bring homemade soup that is second-to-none. The evening ends with a brief service of prayer, focusing on Lent.
