The Friendly Caller – February 2021

Here is a copy of the Friendly Caller for this month – ENJOY!

TUESDAY “COFFEE HOUR”

Want to see and talk to other church friends (and the Pastor) in person?  Even though we are physically distanced we can be socially and spiritually close.  Follow the link on Tuesdays at 10:00 AM for “Coffee Hour.”  If you miss the sharing that happens during the Prayers of the People, or if you miss the “Coffee Hour” that would normally happen weekly after worship – perhaps this can help replace those.  We share what’s happening in our lives, joys, concerns, and we pray together.    SEE MORE WITH LINKS TO THE ZOOM CALL

ASH WEDNESDAY
Feb 17, 6:30 pm

Since Feb 17 is actually ASH WEDNESDAY – We will have a few moments to acknowledge the day, and impose ashes at the beginning of our regular 6:30 Wednesday night Bible Study.  Those who come for this portion, are invited to stay to begin the Bible Study with us, but are also welcome to leave to other activities as they feel the need.

PLEASE BRING to the zoom meeting: A small slip of paper to write on with pencil, a ceramic or glass bowl and match or lighter to light the paper to make the ashes. A bit of lotion or oil to dip you finger in before dipping into the ashes, will be helpful.

Wednesday Night LENTEN Bible Study
6:45-8:00 pm, Feb 17

following 6:30 Ash Wed. imposition of ashes (same zoom)

Beginning WEDNESDAY NIGHT, Feb 17 is our Lenten Study: “The Last Week” by Marcus Borg and John Crossan.

This book follows the Gospel of Mark rendering of the Last Week of Jesus’ life (and death and life), in a day-by account of that Final Week, which takes place in Jerusalem – starting with Palm Sunday. Please read the preface and First Chapter before the Feb 17 session.

The Book is available on Amazon – used books are around $8 including the shipping.

Here is the link to use to join the ZOOM BIBLE STUDY on an internet enabled device, smartphone or computer - https://greaternw.zoom.us/j/93573921173 - We will be able to screen share, and if there is a video see it together, so calling in without video gives you less advantage, though you could still hear the video, and would be welcome to listen in.

Reimagining Life Together
– Chehalis Stage 2 PLAN:

Here is our Plan for Stage 2 of our gradual plan to reopen the church building, and in-person activities – this is the stage in which we are currently operating:

First Sunday – EVENING VESPERS
A short communion service

One thing that we miss when our worship is not live is communion.  Join Pastor Karla on the first Sunday of each month, NEXT SERVICE on February 7 at 7:00 PM for a LIVE communion service on zoom . 
 One thing you need to note!  You’ll need to plan ahead enough to bring your own bread and beverage!
