Max on Life

Hi Everyone,

This Friday, February 27, Donna will be offering a very special program for Friday Morning Moms, Max on Life.  The theme for the Max on Life study this Friday is “Help”. The discussion will center around how our faith helps us live our lives, and how we can tap into the awesome power and love of God to re-energize our faith and make our lives truly abundant.

Coming attractions:

Patchwork of Love Quilting – Patchwork of Love Quilting workshops are held on the dates that follow.  Every year this group creates beautiful quilts that are given to the Mechanicville Area Community Services Center, where they are given to children who are in difficult physical and emotional situations.  Everyone is welcome to help.  No experience necessary and almost everything is provided.  Come for an hour or bring your lunch and stay all day. The workshops are 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM in the Hearthroom.

Wednesday, March 4; Tuesday, March 10; Wednesday, March 18; Thursday, March 26.

Book Group – In the spirit of Lent, our next book will help us become more mindful of Jesus and his ministry.  The book will be “The Jesus I Never Knew” by Philip Yancey.  Our meeting date will be Tuesday, March 31 at 7:00 pm at the church.   From the manger in Bethlehem to the cross in Jerusalem, Yancey presents a complex character who generates questions as well as answers; a disturbing and exhilarating Jesus who wants to radically transform your life and stretch your faith. The Jesus I Never Knew uncovers a Jesus who is brilliant, creative, challenging, fearless, compassionate, unpredictable, and ultimately satisfying. “No one who meets Jesus ever stays the same,” says Yancey. Please get your copy and read!

Lenten University – Many offerings from which to choose.   Lenten University .

Have a great week, and I’ll see you soon.

Grace and peace,
