March 1 -- The month begins with Ash Wednesday. We mark this day with a quiet reflective worship service that begins with a light meal (soup and bread usually). We gather at 6:30pm, and once we've finished supper move into the Sanctuary for a service of candlelight, music, readings and silence.
March 5, 12, 19 & 26 -- In the "church year" we're moving through the Season of Lent -- the 40 days before Easter Sunday. Traditionally this has been a time for Christians to take some time out of the frenzy of life to reflect on what truly gives life meaning, depth and hope. Here at Forest Hill we'll watch a 4-part video series called "From Jesus to Christ" after church on the four Sundays of March. The program was produced by American Public Television, and provides lots of opportunity to spark the discussions that will follow the video viewing.
March 12 -- the United Church Women's group are starting a knitting collective -- but they don't want to restrict this just to women. Knitters of all ages and genders are welcome ... instruction is provided for anyone who'd find this helpful!
March 25 -- Social Sisters will be cooking together in our Kitchens. This new group, made up of a number of the younger women in our congregation and their friends, gather monthly to cook a meal together, which they can then take home in freezable storage containers and use on one of those nights when the schedule falls apart and there's no time to cook. It's a great way to connect with younger women, have some terrific conversation, and go home with cookies. What could be better than that?
March 26 -- We'll have an abbreviated worship service on the last Sunday March so we can include our Annual Congregational Meeting. It's a chance to review the work of all the different groups in our church -- successes and failures, achievements and dreams. Come celebrate the remarkable variety of ministries that keep this place vital and exciting.
