Because Service Doesn't Stop on Sundays.

Names are such an important part of our story.  Names throughout time had meaning;  Scripture repeatedly insists God knows people’s names.

“Growing in God’s Garden” | 2018 Lenten Devotional
Lent invites forty days of intentional soul work. It gives us time to reflect on God’s word and pray, trusting God to tend our llives and bring forth new life. Pick up this year’s Lenten Devotional by Erin Matteson in the narthex. Consider donating in the nearby basket to offset the cost, if able.

Global Women's Project (GWP) | Lenten Calendar
Request GWP’s free printed or email Lenten Calendar by emailing cobgwp@gmail.com. GWP was created in 1978 as an outgrowth of Church of the Brethren women gathering at Manchester College challenged by Dr. Ruthann Knechel Johannsen to reflect on our privileged position and to do more by “tax” ourselves to create structures to help others. The calendar follows that idea by suggesting ways to “tax” ourselves each day of Lent along with scriptures about poverty and information on problems faced by women and GWP’s projects.
