Ash Wednesday is this Wednesday. Service will be at 7pm (after our usual supper at 5:45). All are invited to this important service of the imposition of ashes, in which we begin the Lenten season.
IFC Homeless Shelter Dinner Thursday March 6: Thank you for your continued support of this ministry! We always need donations of food, especially of meats, vegetables, and hearty starches. Please have food in the church kitchen by Thursday March 6 by 5:00, or earlier if it needs to be cooked or heated. We need folks to help cook/prepare foods Thursday afternoon, transport food to the shelter (corner of Columbia and Rosemary) at 5:30, and serve from 6-7. Come join us! Contact Liz Moore for details at 919-260-5310 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Piecemakers will meet Tuesday, March 18, at 7:00pm, in the new Hut to share materials from their scrap stashes and plan this year's quilt for Harvest Festival. This is a perfect pattern for a beginner quilter to work on, and any and all who are interested in learning to quilt are invited to join us that evening! If you have questions, please contact Doris Click at email@example.com or 919-489-7244.
Mark your calendars!!! There will be a church-wide clean up on Saturday, March 22nd. We will begin at 8am, but will be working most of the day. More details to come.
Please help us with the YOUTH SERVICE PROJECT for February. We are accepting donations of the following:
Gallon size zip bags, granola or protein bars, water bottles, packages of peanut butter or other crackers, socks, small toiletries
We’ll collect the items and create “Share the Love” bags for all members of the church to distribute when someone is in need. Please bring anything you can contribute and place it in the collections bins in the Fellowship Hall.
Local missions project! We are partnering with Pathways Elementary School in Hillsborough, to help provide weekend meals for some of the school children who may not otherwise have consistent meals on the weekends.
We are asking members of the congregation to bring in non-perishable items we can pack in Orange Church canvas bags to send home with 5 families. We will start with 5 families and work to be committed to these families every week until the end of the school year.
Remember the bags should not be too heavy for young children to carry.
Prison Ministry Volunteers Needed! We are looking for men and women willing to visit Orange Correctional Center on 4 Friday nights (one each in April, May, June and July) to help prepare the dads there for the Aug. 1-2 One Day With God Camp. We fellowship with the men and present a Christian program aimed at fathers seeking to reconcile with their children and strengthen their faith. It is a great chance to build families and serve Christ. If you are interested, email or call Mary Anne or Wayne Vanderburg (firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-968-9907) so we can help you obtain clearance to visit the prison.
