THIS THIRD SUNDAY IN LENT: “THE RESCUE”

GENESIS 14:1-16

We continue on our Lenten journey in our Redemption Song series with “The Rescue” this Sunday.  Abram and Lot had gone their separate ways due to their families and possessions having grown too large for them to occupy the same area.  Lot, having settled in the same plain as Sodom and Gomorrah, gets caught up in a geo-political dispute that leads to war.  Lot finds himself on the losing side with he and all his household captive to the pagan king, Chedorlaomer of Elam.  Upon hearing the news, Abram gathers a coalition and along with 318 of his own fighting men, pursues and defeats Chedorlaomer, rescuing Lot.  As patriarch, he placed himself and his men at great risk in order to redeem Lot.

EASTER LILY ORDERS
The Deacons are now taking orders for Easter Lilies at $15.00 per plant.  Orders must be received no later than Sunday, April 14, and forms are available in the church sanctuary or in the office.  When placing your order, include a dedication for your loved ones.

SOUP KITCHEN NEXT WEEK

Next week is our week to help support St. Vincent DePaul Dining Hall, which means that:

  1. All ages are invited and encouraged to join us for sandwich making on Tuesday night, at 7:00 p.m. in the Gym.  It takes about one hour and is a great activity for families.

  2. Ages 12 and up are invited and encouraged to join us for serving at the soup kitchen on Wednesday, at 4:30 p.m. at St Vincent DePaul downtown at 437 W 200 S.

To join, please RSVP via this sign-up link or by contacting Rebecca at rsandulli@wpcslc.org.

LOST AND FOUND CLEAN OUT

We have a number of unclaimed items (sunglasses, car keys, earrings, jackets, coffee mugs etc.) in the main church office.  Unclaimed items will be donated after April 5th, so make sure to stop by and see if anything is yours.

A LENTEN RETREAT

This retreat will be led by former Director of Spiritual Formation Heather Monkmeyer.  All are invited to gather on the threshold of holy week for a spacious day of opening to the surprises God might have for each of us.  In a contemplative setting, and with a spirit of wonder, we’ll engage scripture, poetry, art and music, each as a different language of prayer with a mix of individual and community time on Saturday, April 13th, 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.  Please RSVP by April 7th, either via the online sign-up or the clipboard in Fellowship Hall.
