Worship Info for 2.28.21

 Dear Friends-Join us on Sunday at 9:30AM for worship.  Come in-person or join us online!


If you are joining us in-person, we ask that you RSVP so we can keep a list of names and monitor numbers.  You can email us, call the office at 541-963-5114 (please leave a message if we are not around), or use this handy RSVP form RSVP Form.  Remember to wear your mask and to social distance!

Online, we can be found at Worship 2.28.21.  This link can be used to watch the service any time after we are done.  Bulletin info is Bulletin 2.28.21.

Sunday marks the second week of Lent and we hope you have been able to read along the devotional.  The second week's theme is Shalom: The Way to the Promise of Peace.  Here are the questions to contemplate this week:

-Where in your life can you recall the stormy seas being calmed?
-How did it feel to know that amid trouble you were being held safe and secure?
-Where is this peace that passes all understanding needed right now in your home, community, church or country?

If you are here for worship, you can write a word, phrase or image that comes to mind in answer to these questions and place it on the Prayer Cross on Sunday.  We will also move the cross outside after worship on Sunday until 4PM for those who want to add their ribbon.  And if you are out of town, feel free to email us with what you would like to add to a ribbon and we will do it for you!

Shalom!
Keith and Laura

Worship Info 2.21.21

 Please join us for worship on Sunday at 9:30 AM either online or in person.

If you join us online, the link is www.facebook.com/groups/fpclagrande and the bulletin info is Bulletin 2.21.21.

If you are coming in person, please RSVP to pastorshudson@eoni.com, call the church at 541-963-5114 (please leave a message if we aren't there) or use this handy RSVP form https://forms.gle/eP1jv4Tw6yz5HUBVA.

This Sunday's questions from our Lenten devotional on Shalom are:

Recall a moment in your life when you received God’s mercy and grace. 
What was the situation? 
How did it feel to know you were forgiven?
 Now think about a time when you withheld forgiveness and when you sought justice on your own. 
How did that work? 
Were fractured relationships healed by your own actions? 
What would have been different if the justice you sought was turned over to God

On Sunday, there will be ribbons to write a picture, word, or phrase in reply to these questions to tie to the cross during worship.  Our plan was to place the outside for people to add to it through the day, but the weather doesn't look to great.  We will send out an email on Sunday on what we decide to do.  If you don't get a chance to put a ribbon on in response to this week's questions, there will be other Sunday opportunities through Palm Sunday.  Or you can email us your response and we will add it.  

Blessings,
Keith and Laura

Ash Wed/Lent

 Hi, Friends-Just a reminder that tomorrow (Feb 17) is Ash Wednesday and Lent begins!

The sanctuary will be open from 9AM-5PM tomorrow for anyone who wants to stop in and pray or meditate in the beauty of our sanctuary.

Hopefully you received the mailer we sent out with the sticker of the ashes.  We understand there have been some mail issues because of the weather.  Feel free to display that sticker in your house or put it somewhere you can see it to "remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.  In life and in death, you belong to God."

The other item in that mailer was a tear drop.  Please write on that tear drop those things that separate you from God or keep you from having a full relationship with Christ.  You can drop that tear drop off at the church tomorrow in the basket in the back of the sanctuary.  At 5:30 PM we will burn the tear drops.  Watch us live at www.facebook.com/groups/fpclagrande as we burn the ashes.

And here is the link to the Lenten devotional we are inviting church members to read this Lent.  For the whole devotional, check out https://www.presbyterianmission.org/wp-content/uploads/Lent-2021.pdf

Ash Wed through the first week of Lent readings are found at https://www.presbyterianmission.org/ministries/today/lent2021/lent-week-1/ that keeps the readings on a webpage instead of a PDF.
