A Call For Lenten Devotionals  
Please consider submitting a Lenten Devotional! These are daily prayers, anecdotes, and bible verses that bring us closer to God during the time leading up to Easter. A typical devotion layout starts with a Bible verse then a story or anecdote and ends with a prayer. Send yours by email to Shandra Zawacki or leave your devotion in the church office before February 15.
Volunteer Your Time with the Interfaith Shelter 
The Interfaith Shelter is a rotating shelter for homeless people who are actively working towards bettering their lives and finding a job.
