February 14, 2018

Greetings:

This past week we celebrated Transformation Sunday.  At various times I have been asked what it is about.  I tend to shy away from giving a generic answer - you never know what else God might say through it!  However, there are some aspects of it that are helpful to understand.  In the story (Matt:17, Mark 9, Luke 9) Jesus goes up the mountain with three of his disciples. When they reach the top, he is transfigured, that is to say, he physically reflects the presence of God.  This startles the disciples.  His appearance is like Moses of old – he glows.  Moses, by the way, also appears, along with Elijah.  The two figures of Moses and Elijah must have been as overwhelming as the statement that comes: “this is my beloved Son, listen to him.” So what is going on?   Jesus stands with two of the most remarkable prophets of the Old Testament, and gets heavenly accolades. For the disciples it was a sign of hope.  Assuredly, Jesus knew that his crucifixion would soon follow.  So how would you seek to inspire those who have been mentored by you?  This event must have been on their minds at the time of his death.  As we go through uncertain times, I invite you to remember these events and know that He has promised to be with us through it all.

Blessings, Pastor Dan

Announcements

Ash Wednesday Soup Supper (Tonight) and Worship - Valentine’s Day falls on the first day of Lent, and Easter Sunday on April fool’s day. I hope this is not a premonition for the coming year!  So I would suggest that if you celebrate Valentine’s Day – do it a day early, and join us the next day to begin Lent.  So mark your calendar and join us Wednesday, February 14, at 6:00 p.m. as we begin the season of Lent with a simple soup supper followed by worship, and the distribution of ashes.  It gives us forty days to get ready for Easter.

Game Night - Join the Education Committee as we host a Game Night on February 18th, starting at 4:30 p.m. Bring your cards, board games or even a puzzle to share. The Education Committee will provide Tacos and all the fixins’. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share. 

Senior Supper - February 20th at 1:00 p.m. will be the next Senior Supper. We will be celebrating our sweethearts, some that are with us and those that have passed. You will see a red heart in the fellowship hall in February and you are encouraged to bring a picture of you and your sweetheart to go on the heart. Please call Robin (360-412-9257) to let her know if you are coming.         

Inquiry Class – I have been asked by a few individuals about joining the church.  (You know who you are!) So I am looking at holding a class on Sunday afternoon for those interested – let me know what would be the best way to coordinate with your schedule.  – Pastor Dan

Quilters – We'll meet on February 27, the 4th Tuesday, from 10:00 until 2:00. I promise we'll end on time. Please bring ideas and patterns for Comfort Quilts or Bazaar items. If you have a project to work on, this would be the day to do that also. We'll have soup for lunch at 12:00 and you can bring a dish to share. If you have questions, please call.  Plan to join us as we enjoy creating together. Barbara Ullmann  360-491-2693 

Mission Opportunities

 FORKids Bags –For the whole month of February, we are collecting  Breakfast Bars (can not contain nuts!) for our FORKids bags.  There are more detailed lists pinned to the red bags outside of the sanctuary. You can keep the red bag for your use. 

Habitat for Humanity – We are once again going to provide lunches for the workers at the Habitat sites.  On the bulletin board in the fellowship hall is a signup sheet if you would like to participate.  You can contact Boni Lenahan with any questions. We need your help! Please sign up on the bulletin board!

Trustees Projects - *A new project tracker sheet is available on the magazine rack by the entry doors. Please take a look and see if there are things you would like to work on, donate too or have an idea about. Please contact Ken Russell.

St. Benedict’s Community Dinner –Saturday, February 24th @ 3:00 p.m.  -This is held at St. Benedict’s Episcopal Church. St. Andrew’s takes turns cooking and everyone helps serve.

Disaster Relief

How to give in response to disaster through our connection. When disaster hits, the United Methodist connection responds.
The United Methodist Church is uniquely situated to respond to disasters because of its churches in almost every county and community across the United States and the worldwide Methodist connection with annual conferences, central conferences, and autonomous partner churches on five continents.
As a disaster unfolds, the United Methodist Committee on Relief is in contact with annual conference leadership to offer assistance.
UMCOR is the not-for-profit humanitarian arm of The United Methodist Church and is part of the Board of Global Ministries. Since 1940, UMCOR's mission - providing relief in disaster areas, aiding refugees and confronting the challenges of global health and poverty - has helped heal the hurts of humanity in nearly 100 countries.
