Lenten Bible Study: Sunday Evenings in Lent at 5:00PM; we will meet at Wendy and Bob’s house, enjoy a simple meal; then watch the video and discuss.  We are going to study “A Fragile Stone” by Michael Card.  We have done this particular study for Lent 5 years ago; however, we plan on trying to go more in depth this year.   Please let Wendy know if you are planning to join us.

Craft CornerWe have begun making, coloring, and painting tote bags and aprons.  We are discussing having our own craft show in the hall and/or our own Etsy shop online.  We encourage our fellow church members and friends to join us in our crafting.
