If you weren’t able to make it to church this week (or if you were and were trying to remember something!) we’ve posted the sermon on the website. In fact, every Sunday afternoon that days sermon is posted on the church website!
Plans are underway to again come together and prepare our hearts on Wednesdays during the Lenten Season. This year we will alternate Lenten dinners and luncheons. Lenten dinners will be simple dinner meals at 6:30 p.m., beginning on Wednesday, March 5. The meal and a devotional time will precede the regular prayer meeting. On alternate Wednesday, beginning with March 12, we will have a Lenten luncheon from 12-1 p.m. There will also be a devotional time at the luncheons. Please consider coming to as many of these meals as you can. Sign up in the narthex for as many meals as you can attend. Signup sheets for anyone who would like to provide soup, salad, bread or sandwiches for these services are also in the narthex.
Pastor Milligan will be starting a new seven week class for people interested in joining LRPC. The class will begin on Sunday,

Come to find out about the beliefs and organization of the Presbyterian Church in America and Loch Raven Presbyterian Church. If you are interested in attending, please speak to Pastor Milligan or call the church office.
