Greetings RezDowntowners,

This week marks the beginning of the season of Lent, a season of preparation and spiritual practices as we look ahead to the lengthening of days, increasing light and the promise of the Resurrection, new life coming from death. Lent points us spiritually to a time of wandering and reflection. It is a forty-day period that compels us to draw closer to God in both love and understanding.

This Lent at Resurrection, we are spending our time of exploring the five essential practices of Christians. For six weeks, we'll be on The Walktogether, unpacking these essential practices as a way of preparing our hearts and lives for Easter. This weekend we'll kick it all off as Pastor Adam preaches on worship, gratitude, what it means to give thanks always. I hope you'll join us and invite friends as we kick off what will be an amazing journey together.

If you weren't able to worship with us this past weekend for the end of our Beyond Possible series, you can view last week's sermon on our Facebook page here. Last weekend was Commitment Weekend, an important weekend in making possible a future filled with hope for our church and community.

If you haven't already, I encourage you to make your commitment online, or to place your commitment card in the offering plate in worship this weekend. In order to reach our goal of $2.1 million dollars we'll need each and every one of you to participate!

Dinners for 8

Also, this week after each of our worship services, we are going to be inviting you to sign up for Dinners for 8! All of our hosts are set for dinners on March 21–22. Look for the sign-up sheets after worship and get to know others in our community over dinner!

Matthew's Ministry Night

Lastly, as a reminder, we are hosting Matthew's Ministry tonight! Individuals with special needs and their siblings are invited to a fun-filled evening of crafts, activities and fellowship while parents and caregivers take an evening for themselves, Friday, March 8, 5–8 pm at 1601 Grand. For questions, registration or to volunteer, contact Hannah.Murray@cor.org!

I am so excited to be with you in worship this weekend.  Lent is one of my favorite seasons in the church year. I am also asking you to continue praying for how God might be guiding you to help us pave the way toward the future by making a sacrificial gift so that we can pay for our parking lot.

I am grateful for you and I hope you have a great Friday!

With Grace, Peace and God's Holy Adventure,

Scott
