Food Pantry Sunday March 5  We will be collecting for the Ashland Food Pantry, and they have requested the following items:  condiments; juice; juice boxes; school snacks; cookies; crackers; rice mixes but not pasta presently; Spaghettio’s and ravioli, canned; toothpaste; shampoo; canned fruit, and baking mixes.

We’re Cooking with Gas Again!  We recently replaced our stove, a necessary expenditure due to its age, condition and ongoing gas issues.  To help defray the cost, we received gifts from the Ehrenzellers, the Fosters, and the Thiels.  We thank them for their generous donations, and also thank all who worked on this project.

Newsletter Available  The March/April edition of the church  newsletter is now available!   Copies can be found at the church entrances.  Thanks to Karen Scheffler for her work on this important communications piece.

Eucharist Visitors Wanted  Being a Eucharistic Visitor is a very special and rewarding ministry that involves bringing the Eucharist to those who are unable to attend church but wish to receive communion.  The next training session for Eucharistic Visitors will be held March 11 at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul’s in Boson.  Please contact Gordon if you have any questions or would like to consider this ministry.
