Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper. On Tuesday, February 25, 6:00 - 6:45 p.m., please join the high school youth as they prepare a pancake supper complete with strawberry, blueberry, and chocolate flavors, sausage, and bacon. Donations will benefit the high school mission trip to this summer.
Ash Wednesday. Please join us for a soup supper at 6;00 p.m. prior to worship on Ash Wednesday, February 26. Households are invited to bring a pot of soup to share. Crackers, breads, cheese, sour cream, lemonade, and tea will be provided by the Fellowship Committee (for questions, contact Carol Court or Dee Rose). Ash Wednesday worship will follow at 7:00 p.m.
Would you like to be a mentor? In Lenten Faith Mentoring our confirmands are paired with adults (non-family members). During this time they will get to know each other and walk alongside  each other sharing their journeys of faith. Mentor groups will meet five Wednesday evenings in Lent beginning on March 4. Mentor meetings will last 30-45 minutes and consist of sharing (highs and lows), reflecting (faith discussion), and prayer. If you are interested in walking along side a confirmand this Lenten season, please contact Gary.
Cooking oil for GRACE. Please consider bringing a bottle of cooking oil (48 oz., any type) this Sunday for the GRACE Food Pantry to celebrate Valentine's Day and to share God's Love.
Briarwood Retreat Center is holding their annual Gala on Saturday, March 21, in Argyle. Tickets are on sale now. Please visit the Gala website to purchase tickets or to be a sponsor.

Briarwood, in mission with our NT-NL Synod, has also opened registration for Summer Camp. This summer's curriculum—From Generation to Generation—focuses on how biblical figures responded to God's call and faithfulness. Registration information is available online.
