Cancellation Information 2.24.15

Friends,

Tonight’s Women’s Studies program has been canceled.

We will hold our first Midday Music for Lent program Wednesday at 12:15PM in the Sanctuary.

Because of the winter weather advisory for Wednesday, predicting the likelihood of more snow in the evening, we are canceling the Wednesday Night Supper and program for 2/25. A decision about our catered food order has to be made on Tuesday mornings so we are not able to wait and see how things play out. A decision about choir rehearsals will be made tomorrow.

This Sunday (3/1) we will be celebrating our Table Sunday with a Pancake Brunch following the late service in the Fellowship Hall. Our youth will host brunch as a fundraiser for their Summer Youth Events. All are welcome – donations will be appreciated and we are not asking for reservations.

Be safe and warm!
