ANNOUNCEMENTS
WELCOME AND THANK YOU:  We welcome Pastor David Williams to our service today and thank him for filling in for Pastor Mark.  Pastor Dave is on staff with the Eastern Regional Conference.  He serves as the Director for Congregational Health.  Thanks for your ministry with us today Pastor Dave.

SNOW REMOVAL VOLUNTEERS:

FOOD FOR THE FIRST:   Next Sunday is the first Sunday of March.  The first Sunday is a reminder to us to bring food for Help Hotline Food Bank.  Cash donations are also appreciated. 

SEASON OF LENT:  This Wednesday is Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of the season of Lent.  Lent is a season for reflection and preparation for our remembrance of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus.  The suffering of Jesus was necessary for Jesus to accomplish His mission which was stated by the angel to Joseph, when Jesus’ birth was announced:  ”He shall save His people from their sins.”  (Matthew 1:21).  So the season of Lent is a season for repentance.  Set aside extra time during these coming weeks for reading Scripture and prayer. Ask God to make you aware of opportunities to talk to others about your faith.

INCLEMENT WEATHER:  If services need to be cancelled due to bad weather, we will do our best to get the word out.  We will use the Church web page, or Facebook page, and we will send an email to the Prayer Email list to post announcements about services.  We will also attempt to broadcast the news on WCRH (FM 90.5).  If you have questions about services, please call the Pastor (301-241-3594).   Do not call the Church office as it is likely no one will be in the office.
