This week: prayers for South Sudan—Fr. Rick has designated February 9 to 16 as a week of prayer for peace in South Sudan and elsewhere.  The Episcopal Church, joining with several other denominations, has called for a national day of prayer for South Sudan on Sunday, February 16. On that day, Robin Denney will lead a forum about the conflict in Seccombe Hall at 9:00 a.m. We also hope to present information about the nationwide relief campaign for South Sudan being spearheaded by Episcopal Relief and Development.

Wednesday: Join us for Bible study from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. in Grant Hall as we explore Jesus’ life in a chronological study of the Gospels.

Wednesday: Christian yoga with Beth Lefebvre at 6:30 p.m. in Seccombe Hall.

Save the date! Mark your calendar for our annual Shrove Tuesday pancake supper on March 4.

Pastoral care transportation help—The pastoral care team is putting together a list of potential drivers for members who need help with transportation, such as for a medical appointment. If you’d be willing to occasionally give a fellow member a lift, please contact Susan Stanton via the office.
