Sunday Formation: Lenten Series: The Ten Commandments
God’s Peculiar Words for God’s Peculiar People
February 18, 25, March 4, 11, 18, 25
We often think of the Ten Commandments as ancient, timeworn guidelines for humanity. This class will explore how they are not only more timely than ever, but also how they are a counter-cultural call placed on God’s unique people. If you think the Commandments have nothing left to teach, come to this class and be surprised.

Casserole Project to Support the Youth Mission Trip 
The Fine Wines’ first service project of the year is to make casseroles and quiches which we will sell to earn money for the St. John’s Youth mission trip. We need volunteers to make dishes at home or in groups from a few standard recipes to be provided. We also need six seniors to volunteer to cook with six youth group members in the church kitchen on March 4. Casseroles will be sold following the 10 a.m. service on Youth Sunday, April 22.
