This year’s Lenten Food Drive Challenge is going to look a little different!  We will still support COOPERATVE COMMUNITY MINISTRIES with “non-perishable food and toiletry items”!  However, instead of following the journey of our GIANT soup can from CCM to Memorial, this year we will have WEEKLY DROP-OFF EVENTS each Friday during Lent!  Simply make your purchase and drop off between 10 – 11 AM each Friday at the Church “Breezeway”.  Members of the Mission Committee will even be there to unload your donation!  If you are unable to get by the church during this time, you can also choose to make your donation to the Mission Racks by the Breezeway door and the Committee will make sure that your donation will make it to CCM!

These WEEKLY DROP-OFF EVENTS will focus on a particular food item, but PLEASE NOTE, any non-perishable food and toiletry items food items will gladly accepted!

HERE IS THE WEEKLY THEME SCHEDULE:

  • 2/19 – Canned Potatoes
  • 2/26 – Rice
  • 3/5 – Large Cans of Soup
  • 3/12 – Spaghetti Sauce
  • 3/19 – Mac & Cheese
  • 3/26 – Sweet Peas

LENTEN BIBLE STUDY 2021:
“The Walk” by Adam Hamilton

BEGINS FEBRUARY 24
6:30 – 7:30 PM

VIA “ZOOM MEETINGS
FACILITATED BY TIM LYONS

Our six-week study using The Walk by Adam Hamilton is going well, and it’s not too late to join!  Each week, we focus on one of the five essential spiritual practices that are rooted in Jesus’ own walk with God and taught throughout the New Testament.  Each of these practices is intended as part of our daily walk with Christ while also being an essential part of growing together in the church.  We explore what it looks like to pursue this practice daily in our personal life and together in the life of the church.  Join us as we continue our spiritual journey during this Lenten season.

The sessions are held virtually via Zoom from 6:30 to 7:30 PM each Wednesday through March 31 and are facilitated by Tim Lyons.  Tim will be glad to answer any questions you may have regarding the study and will work with you if you’re not familiar with Zoom.  Please register with Tim if you want to participate by email to tlyons00@gmail.com.
