Adult
Sarah Are will lead us in a discussion about what confirmation means and how it is a touchstone for a lifelong journey of faith. Parents of confirmands should attend.
 
Children
Did you know? Children learn two parables today - a lost sheep and a lost coin. Something of great value is lost and when it is found, there is great celebration. This is how God feels when we ask for forgiveness. 
Luke 15:3-10 
Starting today we will distribute Lenten Coin Banks to collect for CHOA.

NEED A PIANO...OR TWO?
Two pianos at the church need good homes. They play adequately and will be of great help to those learning to play piano, or for those who want a gently used piano at a huge discount. The cost: paying to have them moved. If you are interested, contact Jonathan Crutchfield by the end of February at jcrutchfield@morningsidepc.org
