Eat Fresh at Amsden
Saturday – March 18, 2017
All ages are invited to join us for a fun time of Cooking, Learning and Eating.
Our focus is on affordable, healthy, sustainable foods.
On Friday, March 17th the Carthage College Women’s Ensemble directed by Dr. Peter Dinee will be presenting a free concert at our church as part of their 2017 concert tour. The ensemble performed for us several years ago and we are pleased to have them return to OBPC. We need your help in providing the young women with a one night home stay. If you would be able to attend the concert at 7:00 p.m. and then take 2 or more of these young people into your home for the night, it would be greatly appreciated. Please contact the church office or Norris Williams if you are willing to help with this project.
Fresh flower arrangements in the sanctuary add to the life and beauty of our Sunday Worship Services. The Flower Calendar includes 2017 dates, so you can have your choice of Sundays. Signing up for flowers on the Flower Calendar gives members and friends the opportunity to celebrate special occasions, remember loved ones, or honor someone special with professionally arranged flowers, and with mention in the church bulletin announcements. It is so easy to do, just . . .
*Check out the Flower Calendar in the narthex
*Pick a date and write your name on the calendar
*Fill out a pink form found at the calendar
*Return the pink form and your check to the church office
There are so many opportunities for you to grow to know God in this New Year. Two small groups are forming which will provide weekly opportunities to gather with brothers and sisters in Christ and study Scripture and pray. We will be using the Upper Room publication, “Disciplines, a Book of Daily Devotions” One group will meet Mondays at 12:00 in the library and one group will meet Wednesdays at 8:00am in the library. You may join at any time. Also, there are new Sunday School offerings, with an opportunity to explore the book of Ephesians in Room 12 on Sunday mornings, and the Library Class will be reflecting on Adam Hamilton’s video journeys on the Apostle Paul’s life and ministry. On Thursday mornings at 10:00 AM, there is a bible study on the book of Luke in Room 12. Make plans now to be a part of our Lenten study, “24 Hours That Changed The World.” That study will be offered in different formats and at different times each week, beginning in March and going through the Lenten season.
