First Sunday of Lent - Potluck

February 17, 2013 
Events at Girdwood Chapel UMC

Tomorrow is the first Sunday of Lent and we hope you will come to worship (8:30/10:00am) as we begin our journey towards the cross and the Easter resurrection!

You are invited to bring a box of muffin mix to go along with the Scripture for the day (Luke 4:1-13) where Jesus is tempted in the wilderness by the devil.  Please see the announcement below.

After the 10:00am worship service, we will have a potluck and work on one of the tasks for this Interim time.  Everyone’s input is important to this process!

Task #1. Coming to Terms with History

It is important for congregations to know their history so that they can appreciate their heritage and at the same time be aware of the issues and concerns that need to be resolved in order to move freely into the future.

Food for Girdwood Chapel Food Pantry

The children will be collecting the food items from the congregation during the Children’s time.  Bring your donation each Sunday and hold on to it until a children retreives it.  We hope to make a huge pile by Palm Sunday (March 24).  Each of the 5 Sundays during Lent will have a different emphasis related to the Scripture reading for that day.  All together they will make a meal.  (P.S. Other food items will gladly be accepted!)
