Ash Wednesday Service Feb. 14, 2018 7pm

ASH WEDNESDAY  SERVICE
FEBRUARY 14th
7:00 P.M.

A special service of reflection and prayer is planned for Wednesday evening.  The beginning of lent is truly a time to look more closely at how far we  have fallen short of God’s glory, and our need for a savior.  God’s saving grace through Jesus Christ is a reminder for us to begin each day with a  a mind set on the things of God.  It reminds us of  the absolute value of the cross, and how without Christ’s victory, we would remain in our sins and under God’s wrath.

Please join us as we worship together  in Spirit and in Truth, with humble hearts in thanksgiving and praise to our Lord.

Outreach Committee News

For the ninth consecutive year, Dollar Tree stores throughout the nation are sponsoring Operation Homefront, a national non-profit serving America’s military families. The two have joined forces in a nationwide school supplies collection campaign titled The Back-To-School Brigade.

Through the generosity of Dollar Tree patrons who donate funds to purchase school supplies, the needs of countless needy students are met as they begin their school year.

Operation Homefront especially targets the children of military families around the nation by presenting the school supplies to military bases to distribute to children of families on those bases.

We do not have a military base in the Steubenville area, so Operation Homefront has asked Starkdale Evangelical Presbyterian Church to pick-up and distribute the supplies collected through the local Dollar Tree store on Mall Drive to children of military families and needy children.

Starkdale has chosen to deliver the school supplies to elementary schools in the area. We ask the recipient schools to target the children of military families who are in their student body first, and then distribute to the neediest children, focusing on grades 1-3 this year.
