The Book of Common Prayer, page 861, defines healing or unction as “the rite of anointing of the sick with oil, or the laying on of hands, by which God’s grace is given for the healing of spirit, mind and body.” This Sunday, Pastor Corinne will share a story of her own healing and after worship, she will offer healing to anyone who is in need of physical, mental or spiritual healing. This will kick off a new healing ministry at our church and monthly healing will now be offered each first Sunday. We are blessed to have a couple parishioners who have been healing ministers in the past. If you are interested in the healing ministry, please sign up in the hallway and Pastor Corinne will contact you. To grow and ground this ministry, we will be reading and reflecting on a book together.

MONTHLY POTLUCK The second Sunday of the month is Potluck Sunday. Bring a dish to share after worship.

HOLY WEEK REVIEW At one of the tables at the potluck, we will hold a Holy Week worship review for Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday. Our review will be future focused as we ask what we should keep, stop and start.

UTO MITE BOXES If you filled a United Thank Offering mite box with alms during Lent, please bring it to church this Sunday. We will send one check in total to the UTO. Thank you for your generosity!
