Join us in Lent (Sundays in March) as we let William P. Young's book The Shack guide us to the cross with Jesus. This will guide us in worship and each Sunday in March from 4:30-5:30PM at Fairfield UMC we will have a small group time for discussion and sharing. All are invited and welcome to come on this journey.

-Rita mentioned helping the East Lincoln Pregnancy Counseling Ctr. by asking each Sunday School Class and each Church Group to donate money ($5 per person) to buy a ticket to their coffee/desserts banquet (Tues. March 5th 7pm - 9pm) The cost per ticket is $62.50, 8 to a table. So we would like to have at least 8 different groups purchase a ticket. Suggested maybe a drawing to see who went from each group!
