Exodus 20: 1-17
1 And God spoke all these words: 2"I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.3"You shall have no other gods before me.4 "You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,6 but showing love to a thousand [ generations] of those who love me and keep my commandments.7 "You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.8"Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work,
10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates. 11 For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
12 "Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.13"You shall not murder. 14"You shall not commit adultery 15 "You shall not steal. 16"You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor 17 "You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor."

Third Sunday in Lent
Messy Church is returning — at a different day!
We heard your voice. After soliciting feedback and individual conversations, it became clear that the first Friday model met the needs of some but not all and occasionally ran right into community commitments and conflicts.
Messy Church will continue in the same format —will begin at 5:30 with dinner, proceed to family friendly themed activities, crafts, and games, and conclude with worship and dessert by 7:30 pm.
Join us for these next Messy Church opportunities:
March 20th: Messy Easter
April 17th : Creation and Stewardship (Earth day)
May 15th: Children Bible Heroes: The Boy Who Shared his Lunch
June: 12th: Children Bible Heroes: Samuel
July 10th: Children Bible Heroes: Esther
