Judea Weekly-Celebrate with Us! Dance, pot luck this week and much more coming in March


   We are so very excited that tomorrow is our big dance celebration in the Meeting House from 7-9 pm with a pot luck supper before, from 5-7 pm.  We hope you are planning to come and invite friends!  No need to let us know if you are coming to the dance - just show up.  But if you plan to come to the pot luck supper, please let us know so we can set up enough seating.  Everyone bringing a dish should take care of the rest.  We are all set with dessert so main or side dishes are best.

   All of that information is in the announcements on the right so be sure to read through.  A few selected announcements appear in the sidebar but there is also a LOT more packed into our Judea Journal, the monthly newsletter for March.  It is just released and available for you to dowload and read. Our staff and other contributors worked hard to get this out almost a week early, but there is some time sensitive information included - especially about SUPER SATURDAY on page 6 and also a call for volunteers to coordinate a Trivia Night to benefit Loaves and Fishes - here at our church (on page 4), and a special Lenten class on Compassionate, or Non-Violent Communication on page 10.  The announcement for that also appears on the right sidebar of this email.

    As if the celebration on Saturday is not enough great stuff, Sunday's service will be a special one led by our deacons, Rev. Anne Marie Davenport and Ellen Willert, focused on our church's commitment to an Open and Affirming welcome for everyone.  Come and experience this extravagant welcome and learn more about how we can grow God's love in ourselves.  Come for some peace and to set the tone for your week to come.

    The online version of the new photo directory is live and those who have already submitted their forms are included and will receive an email with access information within the next few days.  If you want access to this handy tool, return your form today!

    I am still in need of personal profiles for a lot of people in order to publish our photo directory in print and for you to be included in the online version.  If you did not receive an email but still need to submit the info, you can download a copy of the form here:  PDF - MSWord.  If you are a member or regular attender who has not officially joined the church yet, and have not gotten your portrait taken but still want to be included, contact me as soon as possible. 

 Hope to see you on Sunday!
