Invitations were sent out this past week for our Capital Campaign Parish-wide Dinner, which will be held at the Chelsea Community Center on Friday, February 23, at 6:30 pm. We are requesting reservations for this event so that we know how many people to expect. Please RSVP by e-mailing Julie Seal, calling the Parish Office, or completing our online reservation form at:  https://goo.gl/forms/flmqG4XKuZoOHvil2. Please make every effort to make reservations by Friday, February 16. If you did not receive an invitation in the mail but are interested in learning more about the Capital Campaign, we would love to have you attend! Please make your reservations using one of the methods described above.

Capital Campaign Commitment Sunday

Next Sunday, February 25, is the culmination of our “Growing in Christ” capital stewardship campaign. Please make every effort to be at church that day. During the 8:00 and 10:30 services, we will watch a special video presentation and have the opportunity to fill out our commitment cards for the capital campaign. We hope to see you on Commitment Sunday!

The Way of the Cross

“The Way of the Cross,” also known as “Stations of the Cross,” is an ancient prayer practice adapted for local custom based on pilgrims who travel to Jerusalem to follow the same footsteps that Jesus walked during his passion and death. If you would like to include this devotion as a part of your Lenten discipline, join Father Eric on Friday mornings at 10:00 am in the Nave, beginning February 16. “The Way of the Cross” will be observed each Friday in Lent, including Good Friday.

Lenten Meditation Booklets

If you would like a booklet of meditations to use during your journey through Lent, there are several copies available in the entrance to the Annex. These booklets are provided by Episcopal Relief and Development.

Service Music for Lent and Holy Week

During Lent and Holy Week, our service music will be different than the settings that we have used in the past. If you would like a chance to “rehearse” this new service music, come early to church this Sunday, February 18. We will begin at 10:00 am.

Wednesday Night Lenten Series

As we enter the Lenten season, please mark your calendars to attend our Wednesday Night Lenten Series on February 21, February 28, and March 7. Each evening will begin at 6:00 pm with Evening Prayer, followed by a simple supper of soup, salad, and/or sandwiches and programs for children and adults. The topic for this year’s Lenten series is “Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John.”  If you would like to bring a dish for any of those nights, the sign-up sheet is now posted on the Narthex bulletin board.

Parish Prayer List

If you would like to place someone on the Parish Prayer List, including yourself, please contact the Parish Office. Names will be included weekly in Sunday service bulletins and Weekly e-News.
