HOMELESSNESS AWARENESS

After a brief hiatus … this event is back! One of the most unique events on our annual calendar is the Homelessness Awareness Sleep out. This year, on March 2nd, starting at 6:00 p.m., our Faith Formation Group will chaperone our youth as they spend an evening under the stars to remember the homeless and what many may experience in the harsh elements. A burn barrel will provide a source of heat and gathering place for comradery.

 

EASTER FLOWER DONATIONS

Forms to purchase Lilies ($12.00) or Tulips ($8.00) will be inserted in your Weekly Bulletin and are also located in the Sanctuary, Upper Hall, and outside of the church office. A wonderful way to remember your loved ones at Easter. All donations will be included in the Easter Memorial Booklet. The deadline for all orders is Sunday, March 17th.

 

PALM SUNDAY

Procession of Palms March 24, 2024, 10:00a.m. If you would like to participate in the procession, join us on March 17th, after services/coffee hour, to learn a simple processional for the Procession of Palms. It will be a joyous procession with percussion and a short, repeated sung melody.

 

MAUNDY THURSDAY

Maundy Thursday - March 28, 2024, 6:00 p.m. - SAVE THE DATE!

Come and be fed ~ Body, Mind, and Spirit! In our own "Upper Room"

 

A Soup and Bread Supper, remembering (or learning!) how Passover, and Jesus’ last meal with his disciples and the Communion Service of churches around the world are each chapter one continuous story. The story line is this: how deeply and how continuously God loves all people(s) who hunger to be free, to be fed, and to be family. The menu includes:

  • a craft corner where we create the table centerpiece

  • three or more crockpots of different soup recipes

  • catching up in conversation with friends, over home-cooked food

  • a little singing which moves the Biblical story along

  • and a closing Communion where we serve each other around the dinner table.

 This is an “All Ages Welcome” event. Soup choices will feature at least one vegetarian, one gluten-free and one lamb & rice with a touch of middle eastern spice. Volunteers are needed who enjoy being creative in your own kitchen’s crockpot and sharing the results, but who will also have the benefit of working from recipes which fit those dietary descriptions. There is no $ charge for the dinner & no reservations needed in advance.

 

Might this be a chance not only to reconnect with each other in flavorful fashion, but also an opportunity to invite a colleague, neighbor, or friend to come “taste and see” a bit of what Amicable is about? Who might you invite?

 

HOLY JOE'S CAFE SUPPORT

For over a decade, Amicable has supported the mission of Holy Joe’s Café through donations collected during Coffee Hour on the first Sunday of each month. As with so many things, this collection was interrupted by the Covid pandemic. Now that we are sharing fellowship in the Upper Hall after church with more regularity, the Deacons would like to raise awareness of the mission and begin intentionally collecting monthly donations again. Look on our Home page for more information.

 

WEEKLY FLOWERS FOR THE SANCTUARY

We are accepting flower donations for our weekly services. Please check with Bobi Zeiser for more information and to sign up. Donate to celebrate an occasion or to remember a loved one.

 

ACTS 

ACTS is open for business on Thursday and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Stop by for great sales. Many items are on sale! Easter and Spring items are now available! See our webpage for up to the minute information! www.amicablechurch.org/amicable-church-thrift-shop-acts

 

COFFEE HOUR ASSISTANCE
