Weekly Lenten Evening Prayer continue every Wednesday during Lent at 7 pm. … and, Please Join us for Dinner every Wednesday night during Lent! We will have a soup supper at 6 p.m. followed by worship at 7 p.m. Come hungry and invite a friend or two. Nourish your body with a warm meal and fill your hungry hearts with the word of Jesus Christ. A sign up sheet will be circulating during service.

Thank you to Tim and Stephanie Sampiller for the Lenten projection background, and to Scott Schoville for his charcoal depiction of Psalm 2:3 “Let us burst their bonds asunder, and cast their cords from us.”

Baby Olson-Smith: May 19! Sara’s due date is May 19, but who knows when baby will actually come? Per synod guidelines and council’s decision, Pastor Clark will have two weeks of paternity leave in addition to his four weeks of vacation. Council also granted him the bonus option of using sick days non-consecutively as “baby” days. So immediately after the baby is born, Pastor Clark will take the two weeks of paternity leave followed immediately by one week of vacation. That’s three consecutive Sundays he’ll be gone. Pastoral coverage will be arranged in advance. Thank you in advance for your prayers and support! What a gift to share this journey with you! -PC
