It was lovely to see so many of you at Early Birds. This week it is Messy Church at 4pm in the Hall, so there is NO 9.15am service in the morning.
We look forward to seeing you, as we hear how Daniel was saved from the lions by praying.
Next Tuesday, 13th, is Shrove Tuesday, when we have our pancake party at 4:00-5:00pm in the church. We eat pancakes and have pancake races before the start of Lent the next day – Ash Wednesday.
There will be a 9am service to mark the beginning of Lent – the 40 days that Jesus spent in the desert, preparing for his 3 year ministry.
What kind of a Messiah would he be?
He faced temptation, while he contemplated his future, he prayed for courage to make the difficult and compassionate choice, death on the cross to save all of us.
Can we try during Lent to make time for Jesus – to pray every day, for our children to pray every day.
To take a few minutes in our busy lives to pause, to thank God for all the blessings he gives us every day.
