Third Sunday in Lent
March 7 - 14
WATCHWORD FOR THE WEEK:
“The message about the cross doesn’t make any sense to lost people. But for those of us who are being saved, it is God’s power at work.” 1 Corinthians 1:18
“Lord of life and love, help us to worship thee in the holiness of beauty, that some beauty of holiness may appear in us. Quiet our souls in thy presence with the stillness of a wise trust. Lift us above dark moods, and the shadows of sin, that we might find thy will for our lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”

AMERICA FOR CHRIST OFFERING 2021
For the purpose of Equipping the Saints
“Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ. This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ.” [Ephesians 4:11-13]
Collecting through the month of March.
