Remember that the World Day of Prayer service this year will be held on this coming Friday, March 6, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church beginning at 9:00 for coffee and 9:30 for the program. St Alban's needs to provide 3-4 women to serve as ushers. Please be there if you are able!
During two upcoming weeks (Lent 3, March 8 and Lent 4, March 15) African Team Ministries will again have their Kenyan-made items for sale at St Alban's. The serious and long-standing drought in Kenya has affected many Anglican institutions, including the seminary, schools and churches. If you are able to support these fellow-Christians and fellow-Anglicans by purchasing something for yourself or for another, please do so. All the proceeds go directly to the Church in Kenya.
Bishop's Committee members for 2015 are Lee Schmidt (warden), Deann Megonnell, Rebecca Cox, Eric Schmidt, Barbara Chapman (treasurer), Vance Halfaker and Louise Ritter. The Committee will meet for a brief scheduling meeting after church on March 8 (no more than 15 minutes.)
