Newsletter for March 2019

Better Late Than Never!

It is rare not to have any Lenten services in the month of February; but that happened this year. Lent begins with a celebration of Ash Wednesday on March 6. You can find details about the upcoming Lenten series on a schedule page in our newsletter.

The students of FVL will be presenting the musical Crazy for You on March 8 & 9 at 6:30 PM and on March 10 at 2:00 PM. This musical tells the story of young New York banker Bobby Child, who is sent to Deadrock, Nevada to foreclose on a rundown theatre. There he falls for the spunky Polly Baker, the theatre owner’s daughter. Through a hilarious case of mistaken identity, Bobby vows to win Polly’s heart and save the theatre. Memorable Gershwin tunes such as “I Got Rhythm” and tap dancing will be featured.  Ticket prices are: Adults – $14, 62 & Older – $12, Student (5K-12th Grade) – $5, 5K-8  with FVL Passport – FREE. Tickets are available on the FVL website or at the door.

Spring Forward

Lenten Series for 2019

We are going to have our Lenten services on Wednesdays 6:30 PM.  We will still be offering the Lord’s Supper in the first service: Ash Wednesday.  The theme of this year’s services is Three Words of Truth. We will be looking at very short expressions spoken during Jesus’ passion that pack an enormous punch with each little word. Please be sure to come to these special services as we meditate on Jesus’ suffering and death.
