Women’s Fellowship News – February 2021
February 9, 2021
As many of you may know there is an organizational meeting planned for the 2021 Farmhouse Fair which is scheduled for Tuesday, February 23rd on Zoom. We are prayerful that we will be able to hold the Farmhouse Fair as we have in past years.
During the Christmas season 2020, Women’s Fellowship provided small gift bags to those who were housebound for health or other reasons. We plan to do something similar for Easter, which is April 4th this year.
Many of our “normal” activities are in-person, which limits the types of programs that we are able to offer. We are planning to offer scholarships again this spring. Depending upon the covid situation, we are prayerful that we can have our Annual Dinner again at the end of June.
As we begin the Lenten season with Ash Wednesday on February 17, 2021, there are many different approaches to preparing for Lent. Some choose special foods, or giving up certain foods. Fasting and abstinence are also options. Daily meditations, Scriptural readings and focusing on spiritual activities are all ways to observe Lent. Here is a short prayer that can be used during Lent:
Dear Lord, As we prepare for and observe Lent, please help us to focus on what is pleasing to you. Let us remember to love our neighbors as ourselves and to feed Your sheep. Most importantly, let our hearts be filled with gratitude for the sacrifice of Your Son.
