Watch Parties Start Friday March 3!   The Chosen is a seven-season episodic television series that creates an authentic and intimate picture of Jesus’s life and ministry, seen through the eyes of the people who knew him. Starting Friday, March 3, at 6:30 pm we’ll be hosting “Watch Parties” where we’ll watch one episode a time from season 1. There will be popcorn and drinks available for everyone, so bring the whole family. Everyone is invited!

You can watch the Season 1 trailer at Youtube by clicking here.

Communion Sunday: We will celebrate Communion in our 10 am Sunday worship service this week (March 5). If you join us via Zoom, you should have a cracker or a piece of bread and a small cup (sip) of juice or other drink available to join us in this celebration.

Church directories: The second printing of our revised and updated Church Directory is available now! Pick up a copy in the back of the church before or after Sunday’s service if you haven’t gotten a copy already. One copy per family, please. If you’re not in the Hanover area, and you’d like a copy, contact the church office.

LISTEN dinner March 6: We still need one more person for food prep (2:30-4:00 pm) and two people to serve the dinners (4:15-5:45 pm). All the food is provided — they just need volunteer workers! If you’d like to join our team, please see Laurie Wadsworth after church on Sunday, or e-mail her.  Also note that the next LISTEN dinner for our team thereafter will be on May 1st. Both 2:30-6:00, in 2 shifts.  Contact Laurie if you want to join our team!

Update from Ukraine:  This just in from Cru Military’s Carrie Pollock:

Once again divine timing!  Jenica just returned from her time with Lt. R. two days ago and came home in time for her package to be delivered to her.  She was overjoyed to receive such a blessing and is excited to share the gift with others.  I have attached a quick picture that she took wearing one of the scarfs while she was with Ernie. I pray that the wonderful ladies that prepared these items know what a great blessing they are to Jenica and so many others.  Goodness is spreading because of their handiwork and love!!
Thank you for sharing that Lt. R. is back on the frontlines and continued prayers for his strength, energy wisdom and protection are always appreciated.
I am actually staying with Doug and Sherry this week, as our Ministry Advancement Team is in Orlando for a Strategic Planning Retreat.  Your prayers for us as we pray, consider and plan for this next season would be wonderful! 
Grateful and Thankful Beyond Measure!!!
