Sunday, February 7

A simple prayer: "Lord, even as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those who are without a bowl of soup to eat"

Help us to tackle hunger for our local community. Since Souper Bowl started, over $160 million has been donated locally, over 2 million youth have participated and over 6,000 charities affected. But, what if EVERYONE who watched the Big Game gave $1 or 1 can to hunger relief in our country?

Your impact changes lives when you huddle up your congregation to participate in this year’s Souper Bowl of Caring and lead them to victory. Now, more than ever, your community needs your help. The number of families struggling to put good food on their tables continues to grow.

The Souper Bowl of Caring is a national movement across the nation working together to fight hunger and poverty in their communities around the time of the Super Bowl football game.

All food items will be given to Safety Net and monetary contributions will go to the The NEPA Youth Center in Scranton.

We will continue collecting through the month of February.

ASH WEDNESDAY - FEBRUARY 17TH                                                                                                                                                                       For many churches, Ash Wednesday in 2020 may have been one of the last worship experiences the COVID-19 pandemic didn’t alter, coming just before the realities slammed the nation. And that means that in 2021, some congregations are considering for the first time how to approach Ash Wednesday, which this year falls on Feb. 17, while taking into account the constraints of the pandemic. Ash Wednesday is important because it marks the start of the Lenten period leading up to Easter, when Christians believe Jesus was resurrected. During this period, Christians show repentance and mourning for their sins, because they believe that Christ died for them. The Session has decided to not have a Ash Wednesday or Maundy Thursday service this year

 

The Presbyterian Women were asked by the Keystone Mission to prepare 60 bagged suppers for their clients on February 9.  They had served hot meals at the mission in the past but due to the pandemic, they are not serving meals in person but are providing supper bags.

Thanks to Kathy Williams, Patti Miller, Georgie Levy, and Jean Biggar for making the sandwiches and packing the bags. Please remember in your prayers those who are facing food shortages and a warm place to stay and for the organizations who are responding to these needs.

Some blankets and bedding items were taken to the women at the Lake Winola Methodist Church where they will be made into Ugly Quilts for the homeless.

 

United Neighborhood Centers of NEPA need food pantry volunteers to stock shelves, pack bags and help food pantry visitors.

Locations: Community Services Building, 410 Olives Street

An Interlocking Community

Christ distributes courage through community; he dissipates doubts through fellowship. He never deposits all knowledge in one person but distributes pieces of the jigsaw puzzle to many. When you interlock your understanding with mine, and we share our discoveries, when we mix, mingle, confess and pray, Christ speaks.                                                                                                                       —Max Lucado, Fearless

Daily Prayer

Whatever happens today, dear Lord, help us remember that you are present. If we find ourselves in the shadows of disappointment or rejection or pain, let us see your comforting light. If we’re in the radiant light of success or acceptance or wholeness, may we acknowledge your providence and grace. Wherever we are, grant us the assurance of your nearness. Amen.
