EVENSONG SERVICES 
THE MASTER GARDENER
March 13 – April 10 | 6:30 p.m. | Assembly Room

Following Ash Wednesday on March 6 through the Wednesday evening before the Holy Week Dinner, April 17, we will again gather in the Assembly Room for our Lenten Evensong services. Our theme this year is The Master Gardener. Through a variety of mediums, we will look at the fruits of the Spirit as seen in the life of Christ. This mid-week service is an opportunity to renew and reflect during this holy season as a rhythm of life and as preparation for Holy Week. Evensong is from 6:30-7:15 p.m. each week, March 13-April 10, in the Assembly Room.

HOW ABOUT A GREENER PICNIC ON MAY 5?

On May 5, the church will gather at Stocksdale Park Shelter 1 from Noon – 3:00 PM for a family-friendly picnic. We’ll enjoy Paul Twenter’s fabulous pulled pork BBQ and sides, hear reports on the morning service projects and play some games. It’ll be loads of fun – and we want it to be eco-friendly, too! 
This year, families are encouraged to bring their own table service. That doesn’t mean purchasing your own paper and plastic. It means bringing your own knives, forks, spoons, plates, napkins and beverage cups from your kitchen – all items you can take back home to wash and use again. Don’t worry, the church will provide paper and plastic for those who forget or don’t choose to bring their own but we’d like to be as friendly to Mother Earth as we can. Shall we give it a try?
