Join us for the Lenten Adult Study on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am in the Chapel. What's God Up To – How Can I Join? We hope you'll find it a useful next step in our diocesan conversation about mission and discipleship. This series combines both concepts, with the goal of giving each participant an introduction to seeing what God is up to in the world "God's mission" and participating in it. This course is also offered Thursday evenings starting Feb. 26 with soup at 6:30 and the course at 7:00 to 8:30 pm.
Lenten Retreat with Sr. BJ (Barbara Jean Brown) Saturday, March 14 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. Who Gives a Hoot About St. Paul's Journeys? These Lenten meditations will focus on various aspects of the 4 journeys that St. Paul made as they are recorded in the Book of Acts. This will focus not so much on St. Paul, but on what we can learn of ourselves and our own journeys through life. Reflection 1: Saul becomes Paul – What it means to have a relationship with Christ. Reflection 2: Barnabas and Paul part company. What's it like to lose a friend over difference in belief and practice. Reflection 3: Paul lands in prison. What keeps you bound, unable to live your dreams? Reflection 4: Shipwrecked on Malta. Experiencing loss and discouragement. If you need childcare during the retreat please contact Sue Legnani (email@example.com) by March 7th. Cost: $10.00 to cover lunch. Please sign up on the sheet in the Narthex or contact the church office at office@stpeters medford.org or at 609-654-2963.
Lenten Mite Boxes and Coin Folders are now available in Sunday school (boxes) and in the narthex. Our many small daily donations will add up to lots of help for the children of Redemption School, Haiti. It takes only ten filled coin folders to provide a year of schooling, uniform, shoes, book bag, and books for one child. Please help.
Lenten Morning and Evening Prayer: We invite you to join with others of our congregation to read Morning Prayer (Monday-Friday at 9 am) or Evening Prayer (Monday-Thursday, 7 pm) in Moore Memorial Chapel. At 7 pm on Fridays, many gather in the main church building to walk the Stations of the Cross. You are welcome to join in as many or as few of these devotional practices as are meaningful to you.
Heart of the Home - We have received several more requests for Heart of the Home baskets. We will be meeting in the Sunday school room immediately after the 10:15 service to put together 11 baskets. This is an important meeting and can use many hands. Hope you can join us for just 45 minutes - so grab a cup of coffee or juice and a quick snack and head back to the Sunday School room. All ages welcome, and thanks!
Add to your Lenten-Easter experience: join the Adult Choir for these special seasons of the church year. Come to the choir room to rehearse on Thursday evenings at 7:30.
