Fulfilling Christ's call to love God, live in community, and serve our neighbor

February 2022


February Focus – Love

The 250th Anniversary Task Force has identified the following ways you can pray, serve and give during the month of February. During our year-long commemoration of 250 years as a congregation serving our Lord, we also seek to move toward our vision of “A Church Engaged, A Community Healed, A World Transformed.”

Please feel free to take part in as many of these activities as you feel called.

Pray Be the living hands of Christ.

Pray for:

● The homeless that they might find shelter to protect them from the cold

● Food and nourishment for the hungry

● Compassion for the lonely and those that are grieving

● Patience and kindness towards our neighbors

● Us, that we may be instruments of Christ’s peace in the world

● Gratefulness for today, a new opportunity to love, serve, and be all that God wants us to be
