The season of Lent, a period of self-reflection and preparation before Easter, began on February 18 with our Ash Wednesday worship services. For more about Lent, click here.
Our Lenten theme this year is Made in the Image. The theme is based on Genesis 1 and the creation of humanity in the image of God. Throughout the season, we will be lifting up the role of the arts in worship and as expression and exploration of spirituality. For more about our Lenten theme, click here for our GPMC devotional.
We have had to reschedule our Lenten “Try It” for the culinary arts. Originally March 3, it has been moved to March 31 due to the illness of one of our resident chefs. But here is some food for thought until then: food related action items and reflections on food as a connection to God, the environment and others.
We are welcoming our newest class of new members on Sunday, March 8, at our 9 a.m. service of worship.
Our next BIG sesquicentennial event is on March 7 and March 21 as we make 150,000 meals for Kids Against Hunger. We need members and friends of all ages to sign up for one or more, two hour shift on each day: 10-12, 12-2, 2-4. More information here. Contact Sue Acton at the church office or call the reception desk to sign up.
Children are always welcome in worship at GPMC. Free childcare for infants and toddlers is available every Sunday morning during worship and Sunday school. Young Children and Worship, a special program for children ages 3 through 2nd grade, is offered on Sundays at the earliest service. A children’s sermon is offered at both services.
