This week at FSC, 2.24.09

Happy Tuesday, FSC! Here are your announcements for the week... 1. Lent Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, marking the beginning of Lent, the 40 day period in the church calendar that has been used for self-examination in preparation for Easter. This Lent you are invited to prepare yourself through: 1) Self-Examination, 2) Self-Denial (e.g. fasting), 3) Acts of Compassion (i.e. giving to the poor), and 4) The Means of Grace. For more information on all of these, please contact Erik (erik [at] franklinstreet.net). 2. Women's getaway 3/7 & 3/8 The women’s getaway will be taking place on March 7th and 8th at Ann Douglas’s family’s cabin in Cumberland County, about 45 minutes away from Richmond. The cabin sleeps 11, but there’s plenty of room if more people are interested. The plan is to leave at noon on Saturday the 7th and return to Richmond on the 8th in time for the service. If you’re planning on attending, please email Ann Douglas (memento.ade [at] gmail.com) or Kelli (kelliziemer [at] gmail.com).
