Due to icy conditions
scheduled for Feb 18 @ 7:00pm

Stay home. Stay warm. Worship with your family or by yourself over a good hot meal.

Let this cancelled service be a reminder that you and I are mortal. We are dust. We can and will die. There will be deaths today because of this ice. So let us use this day and everyday to enjoy the life and prepare for death.

Check back on Pastor Andrew’s Blog for more teaching on Ash Wednesday, Lent, and mortality.

Stay safe friends,
Pastor Andrew

Feb 18 – Ash Wednesday Service

Ash Wednesday Service
Wednesday, February 18, 2015

Not sure what Ash Wednesday is? Neither were we until we showed up to our first Ash Wednesday Service. Don’t worry, Pastor Andrew will explain it all on Wednesday, but for now, just know that Ash Wednesday is the reason Mardi Gras was ever invented.

But seriously, Ash Wednesday is the first event in anticipation of Easter Sunday. The time between now and Easter is called by church folk, “Lent,” and serves as a Spiritual Spring Cleaning and Spring Training to reset our clocks and allow us time to think about and digest all the import of Resurrection.

The Gospels are full of stories about Jesus eating with people. Jesus ate because he was human. Jesus ate with people because he was good people. 
Every other month, Oakland gets together just to eat each other's food and listen to each other's stories. You've got to eat dinner somewhere, so why not eat in good company.

February 1 – Souper Bowl Sunday

(there’s also a football game that day)

The Oakland Youth will be dishing up delicious, nummy soups after Church on Sunday, February 1st to raise money for their upcoming 30-Hour Famine Project. Bring some extra cash and an empty belly to enjoy a quick lunch and good conversation and leave plenty of time to get home for the big game.

If you’re interested in donating a pot of soup email Michele, secretary@oaklandpresbyterianchurch.org.
