Sunday, March 15 announcements

Published March 13, 2015 by

Lenten Study continues Wednesday at 6:30 in the Skuse Room. Using a Diana Butler Bass DVD and study guide, this week’s topic is “Belonging.” What kind of community do we want to be? Dr. Bass suggests we can insight into this by shifting the question from who are you to whose are you?

Lenten Lunch series continues this Thursday, noon in our Fellowship Hall. The theme is “Gathering at the Water,” and the speaker is Sister Marie Lucek.

Lenten Lunch Help…..For the last Lenten Luncheon on March 26, NLUC is providing bread and cleaning up after. Home-made or good artesian breads from the grocery stores are fine. We need 8-10 loaves. If you can help, please sign up on the Fellowship Hall bulletin board or call Judy Knight at 586-9562.

A study on nonviolence, justice and peace begins after church today at 12:45. Our reference book “Jesus Christ peace maker – A New Theology of Peace” by Terrence Rynne explores Jesus’s sermon on the Mount and draws applications for today’s world. If you have questions contact Melody Millard, 321-5067, or KJ Metcalf at 586-6738.

We are collecting food items to be distributed to students at Riverbend Elementary. This provides weekend food for those who receive free school breakfast and lunch during the week. We could use: single cup mac & cheese, Chef Boyardee, pop-top soup, dry cereal and saltine crackers. If you can donate money, please label it “Weekend food program.” We pack up over 60 food bags on Wednesdays at 10 AM if anyone would like to help. Thank you.

Our annual One Great Hour of Sharing (OGHS) special offering will be received March 29. OGHS is the cooperative effort of several denominations including the United Methodist and Presbyterian USA churches. OGHS funds provide disaster relief, refugee assistance, and development efforts worldwide.

April’s newsletter deadline is Monday, March 30.

Our church will be providing refreshments and fellowship during the Gold Medal Basketball Tournament, Monday – Friday, 9:00 – 5:00 in the Fellowship Hall. We will offer tea and coffee as a way of greeting and welcoming visitors to Juneau. If you would like to help with this, please contact June Degnan at (907)752-0030.
