BOOMER’s 11th ANNUAL CRAWFISH BOIL AND BONCO - Next Saturday, March 23rd following the 5 PM worship service, ~6 PM, we will have our 11th annual crawfish boil with crawfish, potatoes, corn, sausage, dessert and drinks (beer, soft drinks and water) all for the amazingly low price of $20 per person, unbelievable. This will be followed by a bonco party where fun will be had by all for another $5 per person, oh yeah. Fellowship, laughter and charming chit-chat are free, with no limits. A sign-up list for the crawfish will be in the narthex and all attendees MUST sign-up and pay the $20 per person by Wednesday, March 20rd. Sorry, but NO EXCEPTIONS can be made, since only enough crawfish will be bought for those signed up. Make checks payable to Debbie Paulson, and money may be given to Debbie, Jean Simon or left with Earl in the church office. Remember, this is an adult only event, and all friends are welcome

LENTEN VESPERS - Join us each Wednesday night during Lent at 7:00 PM for Vespers following the service of Holden Evening Prayer. The services will be preceded by a light meal of soup and sandwiches in our fellowship hall between 6:00-6:45 PM.

LENTEN OFFERING BOXES - Lenten Offering Boxes are available in the Narthex. Please take one home, fold it into a box, and put it in a conspicuous place at home. Use it throughout Lent to collect spare change (or large bills J). Also use it as a reminder to sacrifice, reflect, and keep Christ in your daily life throughout Lent. When it fills up, bring it back and place it in the large basket in the Narthex – feel free to get a new one and continue this practice throughout the Lenten season.
BLESSING BAGS - Youth and Evangelism are once again looking for items for our Blessing Bags!  We are looking for the following items:   Travel size shampoo, conditioner, body wash, bar soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, floss, deodorant, feminine products, Band-aids, gum, granola bars and individual wrapped snacks.

MISSION SITE PROFILE - There are copies of the Mission Site Profile (MSP) on the welcome center in the Narthex for you to take and review. The MSP is the result of our
congregational surveys and CTK/Kenner demographics and is used by the Call Committee to match our church priorities and needs with potential pastoral candidates.

BOOK CLUB - Join us at 7:00 PM on March 25 at  Puccino’s on Vets to discuss "THE HUSBAND’S SECRET" by Lianne Moriarty. Please join us. Bring a friend.

THANK YOU FOR ARC BEADS - We want to send out a very special thank you for all of the people that brought Mardi Gras beads. I had enough for 2 car loads for ARC.  They were appreciated and it is so nice to be able to help find work for those who enjoy it.  Thank You.
