February 2018 Tidings

posted May 29, 2018, 1:19 PM by Kate Fields
Dear Underwood Church Family,

As we progress through the winter season, I hope this greeting finds each of you well and having had a good, meaningful holiday. I look forward to the many ways that we will fellowship together in February! We’ll gather around tables for a Game Night and then not long after that, a Pancake Dinner on the Tuesday preceding Lent. We’ll do a service of ashes on Sunday morning, February 18th as we begin the Lenten season. And we’ll say goodbye to our beloved church mother, Carolyn Sanders in a Memorial Service tribute to her.

An important happening in the life of our congregation will be o, February 4th, 2018, during our 10:00am Sunday morning worship. We’ll have an important congregational meeting within the worship service. We are asking everyone in the Underwood family, even if you haven’t made it lately, to try to attend.

This will be a chance to do worship a little differently! We’ll line the front of the sanctuary with chairs, and pray and sing in a circle. We will bless the cup and bread, and take Communion together as an act of worship. Then, instead of the sermon, we’ll gather around to listen and share.

The Strategic Visioning Taskforce will be presenting the information that they have collected in the last year about the status of Underwood, as well as recommendations for the future. Then, the floor will be opened up to everyone to contribute ideas, ask questions, and vision together.

This is not a business meeting! We will not be calling any kind of vote, but rather inviting folks into conversation about where you would like to see Underwood go and grow. We make the way by walking. So please, make plans to attend and be invested in this process.

May God be our Vision,
