Second Sunday in Lent: Worship at 8:00 am 10:30 am

***
christ-4852588 1920

The Gospel for this Sunday:

John 3:1-17

Baptism

During Lent we journey with all those around the world who will be baptized at the Easter Vigil. In today’s gospel Jesus tells Nicodemus that he must be born of water and Spirit. At the font we are a given a new birth as children of God. As God made a covenant with Abraham, in baptism God promises to raise us up with Christ to new life. From worship we are sent forth to proclaim God’s love for all the world.

Sunday, March 8 at 9:30 am; Adult Ed Room

What is this all about? Come learn about a relatively new non-profit program designed to help youth unlock their entrepreneurial gifts and use them to make the world a better place. In the process they earn real profits by developing their own revenue-generating business ideas to address social issues of importance to them. As might be anticipated, this has been the initial motivator but the program also offers benefits for college and career preparation and cultural understanding. The founding director, Roxie Hentz, Ph.D will share some of the unexpected joys of working with these teens. Learn more at www.CEOsOfTomorrow.com
