Ash Wednesday Service

Wednesday, March 6, 2019

6:00 p.m.

NLPC Sanctuary

My friends, every year we are given the opportunity to celebrate our redemption through the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. Lent is a time to prepare for this celebration and to renew our life. We begin the Holy Season by acknowledging our need for repentance, and for the mercy and forgiveness proclaimed in the gospel of Jesus Christ.

- Pastor Lynn Miller

New Cookie Angels Needed!

We are in need of more cookies to continue our ministry on Sunday mornings. You would bake or buy 4 to 5 dozen treats five time a year. You are assigned a leader who will get you a schedule and call to remind you of the dates you are scheduled to bring in the treats. When you arrive at the church on the date you are to bring in the treats, you would just drop them off at the cafe with your name and service time indicated.

We need your help to continue this ministry of hospitality at our church. Please call Judy McNeely (cookie coordinator) if you can help at 750-0859.

The Buddy System Needs Your Help

The Buddy System is in need of volunteers to minister to those who are lonely and homebound. There are many who are in need of someone who will take a little time and spread a little sunshine in their lives. It will be a two-fold blessing, with you as the major beneficiary! For information, call Marilyn Waites (245-6638).
