Thanks for Following our Lenten Disciplines. This is the last week of our Lenten Prayer guide and prayer and fasting on Fridays. Lenten offerings can be mailed in the next two weeks.
Preparing to Return to In-Person Worship. As we prepare to return to in-person worship, we are launching a fundraiser to raise $5,000 to improve our audio-video equipment. This will help us build on the funds we have already received, make COVID-19 equipment adjustments, and seek to find ways to include our current on-line worshippers when we resume our in-person worship.
Our tithes, offerings and special giving can be mailed, dropped off at the office, sent through your bank’s bill-pay or paid by PayPal on our website at https://www.northwoods-umc.org/. Your continued gifts do help us pay our bills and keep our District/Conference commitments current.
Protect against Covid-19 with the 3Ws: Wear a mask. Wash your hands. Watch your distance.

Palm Sunday Prayer: Lord God, through the shouts and branches, be with us today as we again witness the entry of Jesus into the “holy city.” We can so easily get caught up in the noise, and forget the Savior. We can get so focused on the celebration that we look past the solitary figure on the donkey. As we welcome Jesus afresh, may our welcome also be reflected in our welcome of others whom you send into our lives, through Christ our Lord. Amen.
