NOISY OFFERING this weekend.

BAPTIZED THIS SUNDAY are Alex and Maddoxx Marxer sons of Natalie Marxer. Welcome into God’s Family.

TRANSPORTATION NEEDED: Wanda Sievers will be needing some rides to local doctors coming up soon. If you would like to be on a list to be called to drive her, please contact the church office. A member of her family will contact you when she needs a ride.

ST. MARK ADULT RETIRED TASTERS will meet at Scooter’s in Alta on Thursday, February 22 at noon. Please sign up if you plan to attend. 

DURING LENT you are asked to participate in two special ways.  During the midweek worship we hope to have people sharing their stories of faith, whether long or short, spoken or written.  Pastor Deb will be glad to help you develop your story if needed.  Please contact her if you are feeling led to share your story.

Second, the Sunday morning series will include instruction on spiritual practices you may wish to try.   A listing of the practices will be available in the narthex or by email if you request it from the church office.  If you do nothing else, please consider setting the intention to pray, and to try new ways of praying if you feel the need.
