Pastor's Note:

We are collecting items at the church for a Hygiene Drive for the Princeton Mobile Food Pantry.   
This volunteer-led organization distributes food and groceries to over 200 families in Princeton, with a focus on families with children in Princeton Public Schools. 
The Hygiene drive runs through February to March 12th, and the items we should collect are shown in the chart below. 

Please bring your items to the Church to put in the marked boxes. 
If you would be willing to help with taking the donations to the Pantry collection point, please contact Sally or Pastor Denise.   The drop-off will be at Princeton Shopping Center on March 14th.  The Mobile Food Pantry people are very eager to help us with questions and logistics.

Sermon Title: Wavering Certainty 

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 40:1-5; Matthew 3
Our Bible study meets following the 10 AM services
(2nd, 4th, & 5th Sundays)

Bible Study will begin about 10-15 minutes after the end of worship and will conclude by 12:15. It is discussion-oriented, and we welcome the input and insights of all participants. 

Our discussion is based on the Revised Common Lectionary for the Sunday following the one we meet for the Bible Study.

We will next meet on Feb 12.
[Pastor Bob will be away at his grandson's baptism. Those who wish to meet on the 12th will take leadership of the study time.] 

Peace, Bob

This is a story about how the power of love and humor
can be used even under horrific circumstances.
Refreshments served and discussion afterwards.
More SALA Nights are Coming!!!
We will be presenting an update in the next few weeks.

***Sala is a monthly fellowship which is hosted by a member who shares their “knowing” with the group or coordinates an event for a most special evening. Refreshments are served followed by a guided meditation and then an activity or presentation/group discussion chosen by the host. Sala is an all inclusive, safe, sober, and beautiful space to feed one’s soul!
Book Group
Hi, folks.

On Charles McCollough's suggestion, we have decided to read and discuss New York Times' best selling author Temple Grandin's book Visual Thinking: The Hidden Gifts of People Who Think In Pictures, Patterns, and Abstractions.

We will meet by Zoom on Saturday, February 25th, at 7:00PM.

Charles is eager to share what is, for him, a very personal insight, and we hope that many of you will be able to join us.

Joe and Carol Sundeen
