You can give hope to people facing cancer and save lives by supporting the American Cancer Society Daffodil Days program. The Daffodil Days program is your chance to fight back against cancer by raising funds and awareness to help beat the disease. While the Daffodil Days program involves offering daffodils every spring to donors in appreciation for their contributions, it is about more than just giving beautiful flowers – it is everyone’s opportunity to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays, where cancer never steals another year from anyone’s life. The dollars you raise through the Daffodil Days program do make a difference. Your support allows the American Cancer Society to save lives and create a world with more birthdays by helping people stay well and get well, by finding cures, and by fighting back against cancer.
Each Daffodil Days participant has the opportunity to donate a Gift of Hope in any denomination. A Gift of Hope donation funds cancer research, educational programs, advocacy, services for cancer patients and their families, and furthers the mission of the American Cancer Society. The Gift of Hope also enables your American Cancer Society to deliver flowers anonymously to cancer patients at medical centers and facilities in your community. Gifts of Hope are not delivered to specific cancer patients, nor are the donor’s name attached to the gift.
Order Forms will be available in the next few Sunday bulletins and the Friday Flash.

Our youth are sponsoring an evening of swing dancing on Saturday, February 23rd in the Fellowship Hall. At 5:00 pm a lesson will be offered for families with young children with social dancing until 7:00 pm, then, a lesson at 7:00 pm for youth and adults with social dancing until 9:00 pm. The cost is $5/person. All proceeds go to sponsor our youth to attend summer work camps.
Lent is a time of personal reflection and meditation, a time for discerning what is essential in our lives and faith. This year we will embark on a Lenten pilgrimage together. Inspired by passages in the scriptures that talk about the journeys, roads and pathways of life, we will make our “way” together. The movie “The Way” serves as our modern day inspiration to live the life we’ve been given to the fullest. There will be two all-church opportunities to view the film in the Fireside Room and discuss it together.
7 pm Friday, February 15 – John and Carolyn Bellanti, Discussion Leaders
2 pm Sunday, February 17 – Greg Wright, Discussion Leader
