The Church has two furnaces – one for the downstairs and one for the upstairs.
The upstairs heating system works well. The downstairs heating system, not so much.
As we all know, heat rises. When the downstairs heating system is turned on,
it keeps on heating until the specified temperature is reached.
The specified temperature is rarely reached when the doors from the social hall
and/or the kitchen to the front hallway are left open (as they frequently are)
because the heat rises up the stairs, frequently making the sanctuary too hot.
Besides the discomfort, a lot of fuel is wasted when those doors are open.
So please keep those doors closed as much as possible during the heating season.
Lenten Bible Study
For the 2017 Lenten season, plans are to focus on Christianity’s most famous prayer,
We will be using John Dominic Crossan, The Greatest Prayer:
Rediscovering the Revolutionary Message of the Lord’s Prayer. New York: HarperCollins, 2011.
It is a prayer that we say together every Sunday in our worship together.
Moreover, it is a prayer that most of us know by heart and one we carry with us wherever we go.
Nevertheless, familiarity can have its negatives, the main one assuming
we know the spiritual depths our Lord is affirming in this model for prayer.
Cost for the book is $11.00. See Bill Kneebone for a copy.
The six sessions in the Ladies Parlor will run from
Wednesday, March 1 to Wednesday, April 5 at 2:00 P.M.
