 February 16, 2020 - Order of Service

Sunday, Feb. 16: As we come together for Scouting Sunday, we also celebrate baptism. We will be reflecting on Matthew 5:38-48 as Jesus challenges us to "turn the other cheek". Often misinterpreted, James will look at this passage through the lens of civil disobedience. In "The Call to Protest" he also reflects on a passage from The Soul of Black Folk by W.E.B. DuBois. This is an All Ages Worship service. Teens will meet separately after the message to have further conversation. Children will remain so they can see and help with the baptism.

 Sunday, Feb. 23: We gather on this last Sunday of Epiphany to mark our third Ember Day of the year. Reflecting on Isaiah 43:18-21, we will consider how the renewal promised in the passage comes through our concrete action in response to the climate crisis we are facing. Following worship on February 23, those who wish are invited to a "Shrove Sunday" lunch in the common room. We will need some help with preparing batter and flipping pancakes. Contact Donna Smith if you can help out.

 Three Rivers Forest Church February 23 at 3:00 PM: In the spirit of how finicky February weather can be, this month's Forest Church prayer time will be held mostly indoors. We will gather in the chapel here at the church for a "Walking the Celtic Cross Meditation". This prayer time is half learning and half meditation, a time to learn about the Celtic Cross as it relates to the wheel of the year and to prayerfully walk it as well. 

 12:00 p.m. Sunday, March 1: Annual General Meeting

This year's AGM is scheduled for March 1 following worship. The meeting will be held in the gym. This is a very important meeting as we receive a recommendation from the Mission Action Business Plan Team in regard to our facilities, vote on our budget, make decisions about our governance, receive nominations and discuss a Climate Action Plan prepared by the Net Zero Committee. As the meeting is held over the lunch hour, we are seeking help with sandwiches, squares and cookies. We need help setting up tables. Sign-up sheets for both are in Centennial Hall.
