Special Events in March
Ash Wednesday Meal and Service – March 6, 6:00
This year we are going to change things up just a little bit, and combine our Wednesday Night Program meal with our Ash Wednesday service. This means we will START at 6:00 p.m., (as opposed to our usual 7:00 time) gather in the fellowship hall, share a light meal of soup and bread, and have an observation of our Ash Wednesday while we are gathered for the meal.
Please join us. This will be a different kind of service, and all are very welcome.
ANNOUNCING: The First Annual Eleanore Troxel Lecture:
When Home Won’t Let You Stay photo exhibit & lecture by James Bowey
For the second year in a row, UCCNB has hosted a mid-winter event, and believing this is a good idea to continue annually, and in remembrance of
our member, Eleanore Troxel, for whom justice issues were at the heart of her faith, we have inaugurated a winter lecture series in her name.
This year’s event will be an exhibit of the photographs and evening program with documentary photographer, James Bowey. The exhibit will be mounted in our fellowship hall from March 8 to 12, and he will be here to share with us in a lecture on Tuesday evening, the 12th. The exhibit will be open to the public. We are still looking for members willing to be in the building during exhibit hours. If you are able to do so, please sign up in the narthex, or call the office to let us know. Please join us for this important and wonderful opportunity to learn together and share in Mr. Bowey’s important work.
“The Pie’ds of March” second annual Pie Night:
Friday, March 15, 6:00 p.m.
Last year’s Pie Night was charged with so much fun-spirited competition that we’re doing it again, and giving it a new name—The Pie’ds of March. And just like last year, there will be prizes.
As a reminder, here’s how the event works: Anyone who would like to do so is invited to bring two pies. One is for everyone to sample during and after the light meal, and the other will be auctioned off to the highest bidder (this is when things got fun last year). The pies can be savory (quiches, beef, chicken, minced, etc.) or sweet (fruit, chocolate, lemon meringue, etc.), but please bring two of the same kind.
New this year: Kids under age 14 will be able to bid on pies in a kid-friendly price range.
All are welcome, with or without pies. Please sign up on the poster in the Narthex. Come share in the fun of this event that earned a lot of money for the Special Fundraising Committee’s budget commitment; you won’t be disappointed!
