Tuesday Women’s Bible Study — 6 PM

Our Women’s Bible Study is continuing to meet. Please contact the church office (907-224-7368/ if you’d like to join in.

Tuesday “Guys & Beer” — 6-7 PM

We are having an informal “guys” gathering over beer at the parsonage (336 First Avenue). We’ll have some interesting beer available each week to try and we’ll make small talk. It’s just a way to hang out and share life with each other.

Prayer Station During Worship

We will again be having a prayer station during worship for persons to offer their prayers to God in a tangible way. There will be cardboard “gift tags” to write prayers on and then place them on frames to offer them to God and so others can pray for them as well.

Lenten Photo Challenge

We will be collecting photos that, in some way, go along with the themes of “The Seven Last Words of Christ.” These are the last sentences or saying of Jesus as he hung on the cross on Good Friday, at least as recorded in the Gospels.
