  THIS WEEK AT SAINT NICK’S

March 15 – Ministers – Lent 3

Celebrant:  The Rev. Michael Ambler

Coffee Host:  Terry Foster

Eucharistic Minister:  Nancy Agan

Greeters:  Erik and Dana Jensen

Lectors:  Vicki LaQuerre and John Sutton

Offering Tellers:  Dorothy and John Sutton

During this flu season, the Diocese has given us guidelines for exchanging The Peace and for receiving Holy Communion.  Rather than shaking hands, please consider other gestures of peace (a nod, bow, touching elbows…).  At Communion, we will be receiving the bread only.   We wish for us all to stay healthy this winter. 

ABOUT THE MUSIC

The organ prelude for this Sunday is “Behold the Great Redeemer” by English composer George Careless (1839-1932).      The piano offertory is “O Rest In the Lord”, by German composer Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847).   The organ postlude is “Our Father Who Art in Heaven Above” by German composer Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750).

Please do not miss violin duo Mia Bella D’Augelli and Sam Schuth who will play throughout the service next Sunday. March 22.

Terry Foster, Church Musician
