For Thursday, March 23, 2017
1) Don’t forget that our Youth Group for ages 10 and up meets at 9:00AM on the 1st and 3rd Sundays downstairs in the youth room. In addition to our regular meetings, we have special events some Sunday afternoons. The next event is this Sunday at 1:30, when we will meet at the church, walk to the West Nebraska Arts Center and view the exhibit, and then to Runza for Cokes and whatever. We will be back at the church at 3:00PM. All are welcome!
2) While we’re on the topic — this year’s dates for Camp Cantebury are July 24-28. I know camp experience is powerful for kids, and I strongly encourage everyone to consider making this a priority.
3) Bishop’s Visitation — Saturday, April 1st, 2017. Holy Eucharist at 5:30PM in the church (this “counts” for Sunday, so attend Sat night and take Sun morning off!!) Prior to the service, our Vestry will meet with the Bishop and Canon from 2:30-4:30PM in the parish hall for a Mutual Ministry Review.
4) I hope your Lent has been moving, meaningful, and holy, and that you have been able to find time to slow down and dig in a little with God. Don’t forget the Holy Week schedule, and plan to attend Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and either the Great Vigil Saturday evening, or Easter Sunday. These are the most spiritually challenging and fulfilling services of the church year.
