As a member of Alma’s “Swanson Society” (indicating cumulative gifts of $500,000–$999,999 in the past 125 years), we boast several alums and students. Dave Lau, a beloved Kirk member, was a Trustee for the college, and Pastor Angela and I have offered lectures on homiletics for Alma students in the past several years.
For those who aren't able to get out to serve yet, we are hosting a canned food collection to fill the shelves of local pantries serving our food insecure neighbors. We want to fill 40 large boxes throughout the 40 days of Lent - you can drop the food off at the Kirk throughout the week or on Sundays. And you know I love a good challenge! So let's go Kirk!
Perhaps you are feeling called forth by God to serve the good work of Accent Pontiac? AP is looking for volunteers to provide meals for up to 10 students throughout the month of March! Accent Pontiac students attend music programming at the Kirk every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Sign up to deliver a meal here or contact Tina Rowan at for more information."
The High school youth group, under the vision of Pastor Kelsey and Joan Hanpeter, was called forth to share some Valentine’s love this week. Once laminated, these will become placemats for residents of Fox Run who have to eat alone during Covid to remind them that we are thinking about them!
Over the next few days we will be called forth to journey through the season of Lent.
On Wednesday night, Pastor Kelsey will lead our Ash Wednesday service which will be offered in-person and online. Please register to attend the in-person service by clicking here.
Next Sunday will be the first Sunday in Lent, the first Sunday of our “In Good Hands” series, and also the first Sunday for us to meet Rev. Edwin Estevez, our new Assistant Pastor for Mission as he prepares to join us full time after Easter. He will preach the sermon for all the worship services and I hope we will offer him a very warm welcome. Please register to attend the 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. services by clicking here.
