Shrove (Fat) Tuesday, February 9th: An old Christian practice to get rid of the fat and sugar in the house by serving pan cakes the night before Ash Wednesday. The object is to get ready for “Fasting of Lent”.  In many countries it is called “Mardi Gras” which mean Fat Tuesday.  Come and join us. Open to Church families and friends. 


Ladies Group will meet February 11th at noon.  Bring a bag lunch.  Our guest will be John Ford, a retired Game Warden.  Men are invited to attend.


Youth Group & their families February 21st will be going to “Go Tubing” in China. More details to come


The Poinsettias are in Johnson Hall and those who donated them over the Christmas holidays may take them.
