Weekly Announcements 3/15 to 3/17

Hi friends -

We’re entering the second week of Lent (for those who observe it). Whether you observe it or not, I hope you’ll be able to enter into this week finding God in the times that bring you joy, when you feel like you’re alone, and when you face sorrow. He’s waiting for you.

Family Table - Rocky River - Buehrle home (19781 Riverview Ave, Rocky River) - 6 pm on Friday 3/15:

As always, it's a children's lesson with a guided prayer time with pizza and other food and beverages before and more chatting afterwards in the neighborhood.  Please let me know if you're coming (if you are able to let me know) by noon on Friday for the pizza order at mattburly@gmail.com and as always feel free to bring a side, dessert, and/or beverage to share. There will be one meatless pizza.

Family Table - West Park - Hisey home (3847 W 146 St., Cleveland, OH) - 6:30 pm on Friday 3/15:

As always, it's a children's lesson with time to explore how to join God in his mission where we live work and play starting with a meal where you can bring something to share - but most importantly bring yourself.  Please let them know if you're coming (if you are able to let them know) by noon on Friday at stevendestiny@gmail.com.

Lord’s Table - Lakewood - Hayes Elementary School (16401 Deleware Ave., Lakewood, OH - parking in the lot off of Olive Ave. coming from the North) - 10:15 am to 11:45 am on Sunday, 3/17:

Don’t worry: Patrick the Saint will be mentioned and stay tuned for where people will be dining following the service to take in the full effect of St. Patrick’s Day.  Feel free to invite your friends and neighbors – and your enemies if you feel that bold. J After all, St. Patrick himself went to share the good news of Jesus with people who he should have considered his enemies.  Some of you all have said you’d like to help with set-up. We will be able to get into the school around 9 am. Anyone who would like to volunteer their elbow grease, please show up.

I often use the language of “cross pollination” as it relates to our Family Tables and Community Tables coming together. In fact, I’m copy/pasting this from two weeks ago, because I still believe it. J I think we’ll be able to learn from each other and be encouraged by God through one another at the Lord’s Table.

For future events, please go to our “Calendar of Events” page.

Remember this week: the Lord is gracious and compassionate; slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.

Matt Buehrle
