Weekly Update
February 20, 2020


Good Morning friends,

This coming Sunday, February 23, is the conclusion of the Lenten Season as we hear and remember the story of Jesus' Transfiguration on the mountain. We all have mountaintop experiences where we sense God's presence in vibrant ways. Peter, James and John wanted it to last forever, but were told to listen to God's beloved son. We are much like these three men in our discipleship, and as we experience the mountains and valleys of our lives, we seek to experience God' presence in many and various ways.

Plan to have some pasta, salad, breadsticks and dessert after worship as we prepare for Lent to begin. The dinner will be on the first floor of the education wing, hopefully to make it easier for folks to either stay and eat together or get a "to go" meal and head to home or work. It is a free-will offering, proceeds to go to the Camp Noah project of Peace Lutheran Church outside of Dayton. You are also invited to bring a dessert to share if you so wish.

There are large print Lenten devotional booklets available in the lobby for those who would like to engage in this time of prayer and personal worship during Lent.

Ash Wednesday is February 26, and we will have our traditional services of imposition of ashes and Holy Communion at 11:30 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.

Finally, there was a brief obituary for David McKean in the Columbus Dispatch yesterday, but there is also an expanded version online. Here is a link:
