Dearest Faith Community Near and Far-

Happy Saturday Evening! 

First, we will have Breakfast Church under the tent on Sunday, February 12 at 9:30, and unless announced, please bring a dish to share every week. Thank you to those who have signed up to bring food dishes.  We really appreciate it. 

Second, installation of framing and ductwork has continued. We received our second bid from the electrician and are very grateful we waited! Electrical work will begin over the next two weeks. 
Third, we will have our congregational meeting after worship on Sunday, February 26th. Looking forward to talking through 2022 and dreaming about 2023.

And last, the Tuesday Work Project for this Tuesday will continue with the kitchen. This is probably going to take a couple of weeks to get done. Thank you to those who spent extra time going through items and helping move this project quicker. If we have enough volunteers, we will start working on the kids Sunday school room. 

If you have any questions or wonderings or concerns, please let me know. Call, text, or email.

Blessings to you all!

Much love, 

Pastor Devon

Prayer Request

Lectio Divina for Monday,  February 13, 2023
All are welcome to join us as we continue to engage in the spiritual practice of Lectio Divina together as a community. 

Our Scripture Lesson is TBA
We will gather via zoom for an intentional time of listening, reflecting, responding, and resting in the Word of God. We will meet on Mondays from 8-9 am. 

Here are some details about Lectio Divina. 

Lectio Divina, literally meaning “divine reading,” is an ancient practice of praying the Scriptures. During Lectio Divina, the person listens to the text of the Bible with the “ear of the heart,” as if he or she is in conversation with God, and God is suggesting the topics for discussion.

There are four movements for Lectio Divina: 
1. Lectio: (Listening to the Word of God or Reading God’s Word)
2. Meditatio: (Reflecting on the Word of God)
3. Oratio: (Responding to the Word of God)
4. Contemplatio: (Resting in the Word of God)
