                           Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper
 
Join us for our annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper on Tuesday, February 13th, at 6 p.m.  This is not a potluck; everything will be provided. We’ll have sausage, ham and, of course, pancakes. This has always been an enjoyable tradition of fellowship time to prepare us for the Lenten season, so please come join us.

                     Wednesday Lenten potluck and meditations

Beginning on Wednesday, February 21st, we will have our traditional Wednesday Lenten Potluck and Meditation. Beginning at 6 p.m. we will share in a potluck supper. Please bring food to share and your place setting. Beverages will be provided.

At 6:30, we will begin the Lenten meditation, which will be based on the book The Stories We Live by Kathleen A. Cahalan. Books are available in the office. Electronic versions of the book are also available from Barnes and Nobles and Amazon. If you wish to make a donation to offset the cost, each book is $12.

This is a wonderful tradition that will help enrich your Lenten experience. Join us in the fellowship and growth that this season has to offer.

                                           'Can pull tabs'

The Idaho Ronald McDonald House (IRMH) provides families a safe, comfortable place to stay when they travel to Boise for their children's medical care.  When our church collects 'pull tabs' and donates them to the IRMH they are recycled. This program raises funds to continue providing a temporary home away from home for these families. Thank you for your continued contributions!
