Ash Wednesday, March 3, 6:30 pm, Lenten Soup Supper, at First Congregational Church, Thomaston. We are invited to journey through Lent on 6 Wednesday nights with our brothers and sisters across town. The theme is “Seeing Jesus’ death through the eyes of those who were there.” We will not meet April 3, but will join the Prayer Walk Friday, April 6, 6:30 pm.
BLESS Sunday, March 10 – Begin with Prayer: BLESS is a new approach to prayer and evangelism. It’s less about downloading information or memorizing scripts, and more about loving our neighbors well. It helps us get “unstuck” and practice evangelism more effortlessly. BLESS is an intentional pathway for persons of all ages who follow Jesus to become like Jesus and join the mission of Jesus. BLESS is an initiative of the Evangelical Covenant Church: Make and Deepen Disciples.
So, we will pray for people in our life who are far from God. We will ask God, “How do you want to use me to bless the people in my life?” You will receive bookmarks on March 3 and March 10. Write down names of those who God wants you to pray for and to bless. There is a duplicate bookmark to fill out and place in the offering plate March 10.
