The sign-up sheet is filling up but there is still plenty of room for others to join in and be part of this church-wide experience. Movable Feast is both social and business: we gather as friends and church family, to enjoy time together as we share a common meal. It is also "business," as we will discuss matters that are relevant to our church, discuss particular questions that pertain to our current condition and our hopes for the future. We need at least 12 individuals or families to make this come to fruition. Small groups will be formed, at random, and once a month, one member of each group will host a simple dinner at their home for the other members of their small group. We'd like to begin after Easter, perhaps in April. If you are unable to host at your home...fear not! The kitchen and Hall at St. Nicholas are always available on Friday nights. A good time is a guarantee! Please consider being part of this activity as it is important to our journey as a faith community and our future as a church.
Easter is the high point of our church year. It is the feast of all feasts. And no celebration is complete without the blessing and sharing of the fruits of the earth. On Saturday, March 26th, we invite you all to bring your Easter baskets and holiday foods to have them blessed. This is an ancient tradition and one in which we find comfort, joy and bliss. Meats, vegetables, fruits, sweets and savories...all are gifts from our benevolent God. Bring them to St. Nicholas and have our Lord bless them.
We all love to see the church festooned with seasonal greenery and flowers. At Easter time, to celebrate our Lord's glorious Resurrection, we fill our sanctuary with lilies and other spring blooms. As is our tradition, financial donations are graciously and warmly accepted and appreciated toward the purchase of Easter flowers. Flower Envelopes are available at the Welcoming Table, near our name tags. Please include the names of those you wish to remember. In advance, thank you, one and all for the generosity shown.
