GEMS: God’s Elegant Mature Servants
GEMS will be meeting on Thursday, February 22nd at 12:00 p.m. in Fellowship Hall. The speaker will be Jamie Samolej from Oakmont Senior Community Center. Jamie will be looking forward to meeting everyone and would like to play bingo with all of you. The menu for lunch will include soups, salads, and desserts. There are two sign-up sheets on the bulletin board in the narthex. Please sign up if you plan to attend, and if you would like to bring either a salad, vegetable or dessert. For more information, please contact Kathy Hyde or Debbie Leafdale.
Please note: If there is a snow storm on the day of GEMS and Troy Community Schools are closed, then GEMS will also not take place. We would reschedule it for the next month.

Thank you!
A big “thank you” to all of my Troy First friends who have sent cards, healing prayers and well wishes! I have felt so supported and loved by you all! I am making good progress and hope to see you all again soon.

Movie Morning
We have a great movie lined up for our February Movie Morning, “Victoria and Abdul.” We’ve changed the date from Wednesday, February 14th (since that is Ash Wednesday) to Wednesday, February 21st at 10:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary.
The movie shows how Queen Victoria strikes up an unlikely friendship with a young Indian clerk named Abdul Karim.
Hope you can join us for the movie, trivia and popcorn.

Holy Humor Sunday Pancake Breakfast
Our Holy Humor Sunday service will be held on February 11th, followed by a pancake breakfast. Please sign your name on the sheet in the narthex if you’re able to attend! Any humorous events (like family happenings) or jokes, in good taste, would be welcome as contributions to the service. Please submit them to Revs. Ann and Bill for review.

Lenten Study Scheduled for February and March
Copies of the Presbyterian Today 2018 Lenten Devotional called “Jesus and the Prophets” have been ordered to guide our Lenten time of reflection and prayer. They are similar in format to the Advent booklets we used last Christmas. Each family will receive one copy to use at home. Also, the CE committee will offer a time to discuss these readings after Sunday worship services. Those dates will be announced.

Ash Wednesday Devotion and Dinner
The Ash Wednesday Service and Dinner will be held on February 14th at 6:00 p.m. Food will be provided. Please see the sign-up sheet in the narthex.
