March 11th 2018 - - 4th Sunday of Lent

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be they name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power,and the glory, forever. Amen.

This Week’s Schedule

Midway is scheduled to provide a meal for the Home of Refuge tomorrow and April 10.  See Amy Simpson if you can help or have questions.  Here are the items we still need for TOMORROW: Buns/rolls (whatever type of bread you would like with BBQ), Drinks/Tea/Lemonade (not necessarily all 3, just enough for around 22 meals), Desserts (one or two more to go with the cookies), Paper products (we usually get from the church supply), Anything you might like to eat with your BBQ not listed, 1 gallon of milk, Breakfast foods for the next morning.   We also need someone to say grace, and someone to do a presentation (devotion, trade, craft, testimonial, song).  We also need volunteers to serve.  Anyone is welcome!

Midway is doing a new pictorial directory!  Sign up today for an appointment to have your picture taken for free!  The dates for photography sessions are this week: March 15, 16, and 17.
Midway will be doing another packaging event for Stop Hunger Now (now called Rise Against Hunger) on Saturday April 7.  We ask that you consider a $50 Lenten offering for Rise Against Hunger during Lent.  On the Saturday after Easter, we will celebrate the resurrection by packaging 25,000 meals in the Midway fellowship hall (with help from several other churches in our area).  You may register to volunteer and/or to give by going to this website:  http://events.stophungernow.org/MidwayUMC .  If you are writing a check, make your check out to Rise Against Hunger.
