Favorite Things Celebration - Friday, February 20, 5:30 pm
Calling All FPC Young Adults (anyone in their 20’s through the 40’s—or the young at heart!) Everyone who can come and play
needs to bring four identical items of their favorite thing (cost below $5 per
piece), bagged individually so we can’t tell what it is!
AND bring your favorite dish to share—main course, a favorite salad, a dessert! Ideas for favorite things: (cheap) bottles of wine,
chapsticks, lotions, favorite beers (yeah—that was my husband’s suggestion), candy, Mercedes Benz (I like red, thanks), etc.
The more people who can come and play the better for this night!
Please RSVP to let Tiffany know you can attend by emailing
her (horvath @fpcdavenport.org) or by calling the church office (563-326-1691).

Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper - February 17, 5:00 pm
Before Lent, why not enjoy some pancakes on “Fat Tuesday?” So come and enjoy a delicious hot pancake supper. There is no
charge, but donations will be accepted. Shrove Tuesday originated during the
Middle Ages. As in contemporary times, food
items like meats, fats, eggs, milk, and fish were regarded as restricted during
Lent. To keep such food from being wasted, many
families would have big feasts on Shrove Tuesday in order to consume those items
that would inevitably become spoiled during
the next forty days.
Ash Wednesday - February 18 , services at 12:00 Noon & 7:00 pm
Ash Wednesday is a day of solemn assembly that is built right into the church
year. It is a day for fasting, a day
of mourning for our sin and the sin of all humanity before God, a recognition of
our mortality saved for the grace of
God and a request that the Lord remember our creation and breathe new life into
our burned-out, dusty lives once more.
It marks the beginning of our Lenten journey to remembering God’s love for us in Jesus Christ. The season of Lent is a
time to prepare for the celebration of redemption through Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.
In the first chapter of John’s gospel we encounter a curious passage of
scripture where Jesus notices some disciples who are beginning to follow
him. He turns and asks them, “What are you looking for?”
They respond by asking, “Rabbi, where are you staying?” What is
curious about this passage is that Jesus doesn’t tell them where he is
Instead he says, “Come and See.” John 1:38-39a.
Give yourself a gift during Lent! It is the gift of time and attention with God
as you go on a similar adventure as those early disciples; to essentially
“come and see” where Jesus is going.
Sign up now to be a part of this small group experience. The groups will
meet for five sessions. Join Pastor Miller as we discover ways to abide
with God through some new disciplines of praying, as well as how to
notice where God is at work in your life and in the world. To sign-up,
please follow this REGISTRATION LINK.
During the five weeks of
Lent you’ll discover:
1. How to slow down
your life, remain
2. How to connect with
your spiritual self and
3. How to notice where
God is at work.
4. How these
discoveries can make
a difference to you
