Jelly donuts. Chocolates. People. What’s on the inside matters.
Last week we talked about improving the things we do that aren’t right, but this week Jesus urges us to take it a step further. He says that while actions can be bad, even the thoughts that lead to them are a problem. You don’t commit crimes? Great! But do you ever let anger eat you up from the inside? That’s a problem, too!
Come this week to learn how to become your own “thought police–” in a good way. Join us as we ask for God’s help in saving us from ourselves, casting out the thoughts that hold us hostage so that we can be filled with goodness instead. Jesus will help all who ask for it, and his well of true, good life is always deeper than our problems!
Easter Candy Collection
Easter will be here before we know it and it’s time to be thinking about First Church’s tradition of an Easter Egg Hunt after second service for the kids. In order to do this, we need your help! We will be collecting individually wrapped candy to be put into plastic eggs the whole month of March. You may bring your individually wrapped candy to the Narthex any Sunday during March. Thank you in advance for helping to carry on this tradition for the children!
