Wednesday Night Lift
28 March 2018
6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Get to know new friends and strengthen friendships you already enjoy in your West Hartford Church Family through Wednesday Night Lift.

   We will meet in the  Fellowship Hall at 6 p.m. for a light dinner followed by a video by Pastor Randy Frazee.   A small group discussion will follow on the topic “ACTING LIKE JESUS”, which will explore actions that make us more like Jesus in our daily life.  The evening will conclude promptly at 7:30 p.m.  

   

 
2018 LENTEN EXTRA MILE CHALLENGE
 
Please share the abundance God has given you during this season of reflection!  Our Lenten and Easter offering this year will help bring hope and relief to those hit by disaster during the year.  Part of our offering will be directed toward United Methodist Committee on Relief.  The other part of the offering will be used to build up our music ministry at both the 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. worship services.  This year’s goal is $6,000.  The challenge is to go the extra mile beyond your weekly tithe or offering and become an extravagant giver.
 
 
YOUTH/MIDDLERS OUTING
 
The next outing will be to Flight Trampoline Park in New Britain on Saturday, March 24! We will plan to leave the church at 3:45 for a 4:30 appointment.  We need to be there 20 minutes early.  We are planning on 1 1/2 hours of jumping for everyone. Then we will head back to the church to chow down on grinders together in the youth room. We are thinking we will be done around 7:15 or 7:30. Please let us know if you are attending (and if you're bringing a friend!).  They need a head count 48 hour before we go.
