Hi Everyone! February 9, 2023
I hope you plan to come to the United Methodist Men’s Valentine Dinner this Friday from 5-7 at the church! The menu has tri-tip, beans, salad, bread and dessert. $15 for one and $25 for 2. You can’t beat the price anywhere and I promise it will be delicious!
We are planning a Neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt for Saturday, April 1st. We will need lots of wrapped candy small enough to fit inside a plastic Easter egg. We are hoping for a nice warm Saturday so no chocolate please because it melts. Bring candy anytime I’m in the office or on any Sunday morning.
The United Methodist Men will have their monthly breakfast meeting on Saturday, February 11th at 9:00 at Erika’s Kitchen in Payette. All men (and our pastor 😊) are invited and encouraged to attend.
The Trustees and Ad Board will meet on Monday, February 20th.
We will have an Ash Wednesday service on Wednesday, February 22nd at 6:30 p.m.
Lifeline Screening will be using our church on Thursday, February 23rd all day. I still have some discount coupons if you are interested.
We are pleased to share our building with Alcoholics Anonymous each week day from noon to one. This has been a great experience for all and everything is going well.
We will be hosting the funeral for Dorothy Hoffman on this Friday at 1:00 pm. She was the sister of Shirley Masingill. Her children are Michael, Marty and Kathleen and they are thankful to us for helping them out.
I talked with John Sandquist this morning. He says that Jeanie is starting to feel better. They both have been busy with lots of appointments and tests. Continue to pray for both of them please.
Pastor Mary Beth is asking for prayers for her friend Robin and husband Nathan. Robin is in her 34th week of pregnancy and is having complications. They hope to keep her labor at bay for at least 2 more weeks.
James’ mom, Mary is recovering from her accident in which she dislocated her elbow. She had surgery and is now in a hinged elbow brace that will eventually increase range of motion.
Mike Hall’s brother Jerry has been diagnosed with Mesothelioma. Please pray for peace for Jerry and all of his family.
Ron Warzyn’s brother Jim has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. This is the same brother who had cancer in his sinus cavity last year. Please pray Jim and for the whole family.
Continue to pray for Irene Jeffries, Lyna’s friend Donna, Deanna’s brother John, Shannon Osborn, Hugh Homan and the Williamson and Hollaway families.
Each Thursday evening at 7:00 you are welcome to the open practice session of the music team. You can listen in and sing along as the team learns and practices the songs for the following Sunday morning. If you aren’t a big fan of the internet and don’t want to click on the links that I send, this is a great option for you. Here are the links for this week’s songs: Come As You Are Glorious Ruins
Enjoy the much better weather and know that spring is coming! I hope to see you on Sunday morning.
