Lenten Discipleship Initiative and World Relief 80th Anniversary

Lenten Discipleship Initiative
SUNDAYS until MAR 24 |
After the 8:30 AM and 4:00 PM services
LDI continues with World Relief’s devotional, entitled “He Was There,” which considers how believers can walk in the footsteps of Jesus. It’s not too late to join a group. Visit to view more information, register, and download digital copies of “He Was There.”

Give to World Relief with “fasting envelopes”
FEB 11 – MAR 30
Back when World Relief was still forming, Park Street Church contributed by encouraging congregants to fast one meal a week during Lent and to donate the money they would have used for that food using a “fasting envelope.” Throughout this coming Lent, we will once again be encouraging everyone to consider fasting and donating. Fasting envelopes will be available in the Welcome Center. Fasting money can also be donated online or in the Church Center App.

Bring Your Signature Baked Delights to Our Easter Celebration

As we approach the joyous season of Easter, we’re excited to come together and celebrate the Lord’s resurrection. To make our festivities even more special, we’re inviting you to contribute by bringing your favorite baked goods, desserts, or finger foods to share.

Please plan to bring your contributions at one of the following timesbefore Easter Sunday, as this will make Sunday’s receptions smoother for our hospitality volunteers:

• SUN, MAR 24 (Palm Sunday), before any service, to the Welcome Center kitchen (for items that can withstand a longer stay in the fridge/freezer) 
SAT, MAR 30, 10am-1pm, to the Granary Room kitchen

Though not preferred, we can accept contributions on SUN, MAR 31 (Easter Sunday) before each service, to the Fellowship Hall kitchen. Black serving trays will be available for pickup on SUN, MAR 24.

World Relief 80th Anniversary: Looking Back and Looking Forward

The following announcement appeared in the bulletin on March 23, 1941:

As you fast during Lent, please consider this week’s prayer request from World Relief:
Pray for World Relief partners in Egypt as they serve provide food, water, and first aid supplies to families in Gaza, as well as serve Palestinians in Egypt who are separated from their families in Gaza. 
Additionally, because the church congregants have Egyptian passports they are able to get in close proximity to the Egypt-Gaza border and are providing spiritual and emotional support for those seeking hope. Please pray that the light of Christ would shine brightly in the darkness and that many would seek Jesus.
