Please pick up your offering envelopes from the table outside of the church office.

The East Lexington Collaborative Ministry Group (First Reformed UCC, Second Reformed UCC, Shady Side Presbyterian, and St. Stephen UMC) will be holding a “Lenten Lunch & Learn Series” beginning Tuesday, February 20th in our church Fellowship Hall from 12:00-1:00pm. The meetings will continue each Tuesday through March 27th. Each meeting will begin with lunch (BRING YOUR OWN BAG LUNCH) and will be led by Rev. Elizabeth Horton and Rev. Dr. Arnetta Beverly, pastor of St. Stephens UMC. The bible study will be based on the book Jesus: Understanding His Death and Resurrection – A study of Mark 14-16. The books may be purchased in advance by contacting the church office or completing the order form in Sunday’s bulletin to return to the office or place in the offering plate. The cost is $5.00 each. Please sign up by February 4th so that we may have time to order literature.

We extend sympathy to Carol Ray (of C-Ray Floral Designs) upon the loss of her mother, Dorothy Jean Rushing. Carol arranges flowers for many of our members who place flowers on the altar on Sundays. Please keep her in your prayers.
