Feb. 22, 2021:
Thanks to all those who connected to our online worship post on Sunday, actually three posts: one featuring the scripture, sermon (“Thirty-two Words”), and prayer for the First Sunday in Lent, as well as two song posts featuring traditional lenten folk songs, “What Wondrous Love Is This,” and “Jesus Walked this Lonesome Valley.” Special thanks to Amanda for making these posts possible, as well as adding the music selections. You can view the posts on the Walnut Hill Church Facebook page.
Next Sunday, February 28 will include our live stream worship originating from the Walnut Hill Sanctuary. We will be welcoming Amanda Schmoll, who begins her service as Walnut Hill’s Director of Children and Youth Ministry on March 1. Amanda will take a few moments to introduce herself and share some thoughts about the work ahead.
Virtual fellowship gatherings continue Wednesdays, 1pm. If you would like to participate, just let us know by reply email, and we will send the meeting details to you. If you have participated in a previous virtual fellowship gathering, you do not need to rsvp again, you will receive the meeting details automatically.
UNPACKING A LEGACY – The February distance learning opportunity, Unpacking a Legacy, continues on Thursday evening Feb 25, 7pm, via zoom. We are “unpacking” the influence of historical racism as it might have affected Walnut Hill’s life and ministry over the decades since its founding in 1785, as well as exploring the possibilities for Walnut Hill’s future offered by our discoveries.
Backpack Ministry – Walnut Hill has committed to support students/families at Brenda Cowan Elementary School through the Walnut Hill Backpack Ministry. As you might be aware, we are currently providing 50 backpacks per week for students. Visit Backpack Ministry for information on how you can be part of this important work through food donations and other support. You may bring food items to Walnut Hill on Saturday/Sunday mornings between 9am and Noon, or contact the church office to arrange a convenient pick-up or delivery time.
A Visit? Mike is available for in-person visits (with appropriate social distancing and face coverings) at your request. Use reply email or call the church office (859-263-5304) to schedule a visit.
Online/Text Giving – Online and text giving to Walnut Hill are now available for those who might prefer the convenience of electronic giving. You can access online giving via the “Give” tab of the Walnut Hill website and text giving via 859-354-3919. Whether by traditional check/cash or electronic donation, thanks to all who continue to be very generous in their support of Walnut Hill’s life and ministry.
Peace be with you.
