Top 5 @ SPUMC


As part of our Lenten series, “Reading John for Dear Life,” we’ll be offering short-term small group studies on Adam Hamilton’s “John: The Gospel of Light & Life.” We have 10 different groups that will be meeting Sunday-Thursday evenings at the church and in people’s homes. Contact Rev. Lee if you have questions or simply want to know more.  Thanks!


You are invited to begin the season of Lent with us at Noon or 7pm as we recommit our lives to God. If you can’t make either time, but would still like to receive the imposition of ashes, feel free to stop by on your way to work or throughout the day when our pastors will be available to pray with you individually from 7am-4pm.


We are excited to introduce a great new resource that we think you will both enjoy and find helpful in your spiritual life. With just a click or two, you can visit the personalized bookshelves of our pastors and staff that describe the books, movies and music that they have found to be inspiring and faith-forming. There are resources for children, youth, and adults and these include all-time and current favorites. The bookshelves will be updated regularly so check back often to explore something you may have just heard about or sung in church.


Boy Scout Troop 993 will be hosting a Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper next week on Tuesday, February 28 in the SPUMC Fellowship Hall. The Troop will be serving pancakes, sausage, apple sauce, brownies, and ice cream, 5:30-7pm. Tickets are sold at the door, $6 for adults and $4 for children 5-12. Children under 5 are free. Enjoy a final feast before Lent starts!


Many thanks to all who contributed to our Mind the Gap Offering this past Sunday. So far the response has been very generous and we are well on our way to erasing our 2016 deficit of around $32K. If you missed worship last Sunday but still want to participate, you can give online or by check — be sure to indicate that this is for “Mind the Gap” either way. More details are available in the Octagon and the letter sent with your 2016 statements. Thanks.
