February 2016

Dear APC Friends,

This week begins the season of Lent. Please join us as we usher in the season with a soup supper and worship service in the Parish Hall on Wednesday February 10th at 6pm.

Lent is a season when Christians focus on growing closer to God through simple living, prayer, and devotional practices. Lent is observed during the forty days before Easter (excluding Sundays). There are many ways to observe the season of Lent. The Upper Room website offers some ideas for Lenten observance: http://www.upperroom.org/lent101

During this Lenten season at APC we invite you to read 10 Things Your Minister Wants to Tell You by Oliver “Buzz” Thomas. It’s a fast and interesting read. From the preface: “Jesus said we should love God with our minds as well as with our hearts. This book is going to help you do that.” (p.xviii) Intrigued? We have some copies in the office for purchase. During the season of Lent we will find a few dates (yet to be determined) to gather for conversation around the book.

 

Looking ahead this month:

*Tuesdays at Noon Organ recitals continue Feb 9, 16, and 23

*We will receive new members during 10am Celebration worship on February 14th, followed by Fancy Fellowship.

*The Annual Congregational meeting will be held Feb 21.

*Our Junior High, Senior High, and Confirmation classes all go on retreat the last weekend of February.

 

May you meet God in a new way during this holy season of Lent.

Blessings,

Interim Pastor Leslie

 

God, whose way is our life,

in this season of Lent,

you turn our heads

and point our steps toward the wilderness.

Even as the sand burns our feet,

we praise you for the gift of the desert:

for how else can we fully know the beauty of the river?
