UMW Meets Again in March
Our UMW will soon be together again! On March 17, St. Patrick’s Day at 1:00 p.m., we will once more gather at the church for a devotional, fellowship, planning and scheming. Since we once more gather, can Spring be far behind? Remember, all are welcome to our gathering. Let’s meet with joy and wear green! You might expect a green treat!
Mission Project For March

During the month of March, we will have a table set up in the Fellowship Hall where you can place your donations. Following our collection in March we will take the items donated to Humane Society and Animal Rescue of Muskegon County for their use. All the animals and staff will greatly appreciate your donations.
Items need for the animals:

Adult Sunday School For Lent
Beginning on Sunday March 6th and continuing through Palm Sunday the Adult Sunday School will gather to really learn how to pray, “The Lord’s Prayer” We will be using a series developed by Adam Hamilton where Adam explores each of the rich lines in the prayer and their meaning in the Bible, illuminating what we ask of God and what we ask of ourselves. Adam will teach us how to use The Lord’s Prayer as a pattern for our own pray life. All are invited and encourage to join our Lenten Study for a single class or the whole series. Please contact Pastor Gary so that materials for the class can be reserved for you.
Devotionals for Lent
Special Lenten devotionals will be available on the resource table in the Fellowship Hall for you or someone you can bless with a devotional to enrich their Lenten study. Please bless others and yourself during the Lent by spending more time with God!
