Mid-week Update--February 15, 2015

Dear People of God,

The first Sunday of Lent was such a fun and engaging worship service that I really encourage you, whether you were there or not, to visit our website and see the pictures and video of much of the service. The link to the website is:

Not only did the service continue our Lenten theme of Now! Change! Trust! (from Mark 1:15), but we also got to meet our artist-in-residence, Matt Holm, and participate with him in the beginning of an original art piece. Come to worship next Sunday for the next steps on the pulpit art and the beginning of a second piece at the back of the sanctuary!

This coming Sunday we will study the text where Jesus says, “Say no to yourself, even though it feels like death, and then you are following me.” What does it mean to say No to yourself? How does saying No help us be more present to our real selves, to others, and to God at every moment? What if I don’t want to feel like death?!? Good music, new learnings, fun art, communion of the Lord’s Supper and each other’s company, and maybe a snowstorm—what more could you ask for?

FROM MEREDITH HOLT: ….. During Sunday School this Sunday, March 1, I will be offering another paper making class. Hope you all can come. Meredith

Remember that there will not be a March Glad Tidings (plan on an April/May newsletter at the end of March). If you have important announcements for the congregation, get them to the office and we will work to get them into the Wednesday Updates.

Let us pray for peace for every heart, trusting that God’s peace goes before us and behind us, Pastor Phil

Lenten ArtPlayce Show:
Matt Holm is our Lenten Artist-in-residence. Some of Matt's art is hanging in the ArtPlayce at the Edge Gallery. Besides showing his art, Matt will be leading our congregation in two pieces of interactive art. Beginning with Sunday worship (10am), February 22, Matt will share his artist's process with us and invite us to mold and "wound" the paint layers each Sunday. These communal art pieces will build up over the six weeks of Lent, leading to a revelation of the finished process on Easter Sunday. Click here to visit Matt on the web.
