This Week on Shabbat

Weekly Drash by Rabbi David Schiller
Special drash on Purim entitled
“Hacking Agag to Pieces – To Obey is Better than Sacrifice.”

Children will have a special skit during the service.
A full production Purim Play will be presented at 2 pm following Oneg. Please everyone pitch in to help clean up so everyone can enjoy the day!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
NOTICE: New Foundations class will not be meeting this week so you can experience and enjoy the holiday of Purim.

There will be no Men’s or Women’s meeting this Shabbat due to our Purim celebrations.

Don’t forget to make or bring Hamantaschen!

The EC Quilting group will have their first meeting on Tuesday, March 6 from 6:30 to 9pm. Please see Elizabeth Schiller this Shabbat for a supply list.

We will begin our first project at the meeting.


March 3, 2018 is Purim!

Children are welcome to dress in Biblical Costume for the day,  preferably from the story of Esther.

Service begins at 10:30 am
Seating is limited

Because this is a Special Holiday Shabbat

we will have many members and visitors
WE NEED EVERYONE TO

BRING A DISH TO SHARE FOR ONEG!

So you say you’re not a cook, so bring something, anything, there are stores with bakeries, and frozen items that you can heat up, chips, cheese, crackers! Please participate, buy some fruit, candy, cookies but please participate and share! Please check items for kosher symbol!

Please also bring your favorite Hamantaschen!

If you don’t bake, Cindy’s Deli or Deli News has them!

Watch for special Purim Notice with recipes for Hamentaschen coming your way this week.


Corporate worship depends on everyone in the room participating and engaged at the same time. Keep your fire burning during the week. Pray, worship, read the Word! If you’ve lost the fire of God, cry out for more. The more fire you carry the more of God’s glory we experience corporately. The rest of us are counting on you!
