Good Friday Services

Join us for the ecumenical Good Friday worship services at St. Peter Lutheran Church tonight (March 30th) at 7:00.

God loved us enough  that He sent his only son to die for all of our sins…so that we could be with him forever.  Now that’s love!

Holy Week

Holy Week began with Palm Sunday, and is followed this week first with Maundy Thursday.

  • We will have our Maundy Thursday service at 7:00 on March 29th, with communion.
  • There will be an ecumenical Good Friday service on Friday, March 30th @ St. Peter’s Lutheran Church @ 7:00 pm.

Let’s celebrate this great gift given to us – – God’s own son, who loves us so much that He was willing to die for our sins so we can spend eternity with Him.  Now, that’s a REAL gift!

Don’t forget to “Spring Forward!”

Remember to set your clocks up an hour tonight as it is Daylight Saving’s Time!    So, even though we will lose an hour of sleep, we will gain an hour of daylight!   Let His light shine in!!   We “HOPE” to see you in the morning.

Chair Volleyball Tournament – Sunday, Feb. 25

Fun & Fellowship is hosting our first 2018 Chair Volleyball Tournament this Sunday, Feb. 25th at 4:00 with Evangelical Covenant Church of Pomeroy.

This is open to EVERYONE & ANYONE who wants some crazy fun!  Those who are veteran players (aka:  played more than once!) and those first-time players (aka: chair -WHAT?!?!) will have a blast bouncing the beach ball within the blue boundaries!

The two biggest challenges?

  • Keeping your bottom ON the chair at all times!
  • Not hitting the ball too hard!

So, grab a friend, a neighbor, your spouse, your cousin, your co-worker, your pet dog (just kidding!) and come for some fitness, fun, and fellowship!

We “HOPE” to see you there!


Lenten Season Begins!

Well, Lenten Season has officially began with Ash Wednesday today.  Enjoy the Chuck knows Church video that explains the meaning of Lent.

Jesus loves you!
