NEWS and UPDATES from our CHURCH

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  

   FROM THE PASTOR      

         

           

          The first day of March marks the first day of Lent – those six weeks prior to Easter Sunday.  This is a time for us to shore up our spiritual disciplines of personal devotions, prayer time, church attendance and outreach to others.  To let these weeks pass without any particular observance will mean that Easter, with all its joy, will be like another Sunday only with more flowers.  Let us, then, commit to taking this journey of Lent together.  Our Sunday services during Lent will reflect this season of repentance.  We also have devotional books to help us with our personal, at-home times of quiet with God. 

            Let us begin Lent on March 1st by attending our Ash Wednesday service at 7:00, sharing communion together and receiving the oil of reconciliation. This service of repentance and renewal will help to guide us as we seek to observe Lent as Christ’s people.

Blessings,

           Rae

 

 



Covenant of the Mohegan Congregational Church

We freely covenant with the Lord our God and with one another to bind ourselves together as a congregation anywhere we are gathered.  Uniquely individual in our faith, we are called together to be one in the Church of Jesus Christ.

            We understand the Bible reveals God’s truth and light to us in different ways and respecting each other’s Biblical revelations, we seek to use the Bible as our guide.              

We covenant to watch over one another in Christian love, grace and mutual care.  We endeavor to walk together, keeping before us the command to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, strength and mind, and to love our neighbors as ourselves.            

                                                   

ANNUAL MEETING

     Our annual meeting was held after worship on February 12.  Reports from the Pastor, Treasurer, Women’s Group and Council were given.  The proposed covenant was unanimously accepted. 

   Thank you to all who remained after worship to participate in this meaningful part of what it means to be a Congregational Church.

A word from Martin Churchmouse 

       Sometimes during Lent we give things up that are kind of hard so that we will keep remembering what Jesus did for us – which was REALLY hard.  Or we can do something new, too.  Which will you choose?
