    order of service  

Sunday, March 24: We reflect together on Luke 13:6-9, a parable Jesus tells about a gardener who wants to give more time for a fig tree to finally bear fruit. As we reflect on our own growth this Lent, this parable says a lot about the way we grow. The youth choir returns after March Break. 

March Forest Church: Celebrate the coming of Spring with this month's Forest Church experience. On March 24, we will give thanks for the gift of new life as we plant seeds and pray together for the coming season. We will meet at James' and Glen's (19 Church St. S.) from 2:00 - 3:30 pm. Refreshments to follow. All are welcome. 

Sunday, March 31:  In Luke 15:11-32 we hear one of Jesus' most famous parables, the Parable of the so-called Prodigal Son. Given that "prodigal" means "recklessly extravagant" the father seems as prodigal as the younger son.   order of service
