A few reminders for the coming week:

This Sunday we will again have ONE service only at 9:00. Dana Cunningham, well-known area pianist, composer, and a good friend of this parish, will be our guest musician, providing the music for our liturgy and co-preaching as well!

Following the service, join us for a continuation of our Mission and Outreach  discussion of January 24th as we hear about a number of possible projects for our involvement. One particular project with an Episcopal school and clinic in Haiti has attracted our attention for possible short or long-term partnering. We will hear about that and others. [If you are someone who agreed to look into and put forward and organization, please bring in your materials.]

Lent is coming! Plan ahead! The Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper will be held on Tuesday, February 16th, serving pancakes and fixings from 5:30 to 6:30. Proceeds will go to Haiti Relief efforts. 
Ash Wednesday services of Imposition of Ashes and Holy Eucharist will be held on February 17th at noon and 7 pm.

And Food for Thought 
from the Wednesday Group discussion on the topic of 
"What is God calling you to do?". . .
An important step in using your gifts for ministry is to claim them and be confident that, indeed, you have enough. What might your gifts be?
Two questions to ask when discerning your gifts (as an individual or as a group): What do you long for? and How do the things you long to do fit into God's Dreams? 

See you in church.
