I was lucky enough to go snowshoeing through Wagon Hill with friends recently.  We stopped several times in awe of how much the snow has transformed the familiar landscape. God was able to take a place we know well and make it look incredibly different. Lent is a time many believers use for reflection. This year God has provided us with a unique way to try a new perspective in this great abundance of snow. It has forced us to miss some worship time together and travel more carefully when we do gather for church, Sunday school, and other fellowship with our church family. Our children have experienced many snow days and delays while many of us adults have been unable to travel to work as usual. Perhaps when we’re all a bit thrown off from our regular schedules and routines, God is asking us to see something new or important that we may otherwise miss or to at least gain more 
appreciation for the many things He provides in our everyday lives.

Our Sunday school classes are exploring their faith by examining the Bible through a great variety of activities with our teachers.  I’m looking forward to their experiences through our Lent lessons this month.  They will also be working on creating some spectacular bulletin covers for the entire congregation to enjoy for our Easter services.

Keep an eye out for several upcoming Youth Group and Family Fun activities. Last month’s Superbowl Sub Sale earned over $700 towards this summer’s Work Camp trip, bringing us almost half way to our fundraising goal.  Thank you so much to all of you who are helping.  As spring approaches, we will share more details about their upcoming mission trip.  It is wonderful to watch their excitement grow and their friendships deepen as they take this journey together.

Whether you enjoy our winter wonderland in the great outdoors or through the windows while you gather around the fireplace, may you find a new appreciation for the wonders God brings.

Brightest blessings,
