Easter is always an important holiday in the church, and Boone First United Methodist Church will be celebrating with a five-week Lent Studies Class.
The church will be offering three different class times to choose from: Sunday at 6:30 p.m. and Tuesday at 10 a.m. or 6:30 p.m. The class will be reading “Final Words from the Cross” by Adam Hamilton. All the Easter festivities will kick off with the church’s Ash Wednesday service on Feb. 13 at 6:30 p.m. For other events at the church, stop by at 703 Arden St., or check out www.boonefumc.org.
The church of the Sacred Heart would like to invite everyone to the Sacred Heart School’s annual carnival. The carnival is not only fun, but it serves as a fundraiser for the school and marks an end to Catholic School Week in style. The festivities will take place Friday night, Feb. 1. Located in the gym, the evening will begin with a kid-friendly meal followed by carnival games and activities for all ages.
Other ways the church invites you to help out is by participating in its food pantry collection. The church collects non-perishable food items the last weekend of every month to be donated to the Red Rock Community Action, with which the church has been associated for many years. Just bring your items to church on Saturday, Jan. 26 and Sunday, Jan. 27. If you can’t make it then, items can be dropped off at the parish office located at 915 12th St. For other events at Sacred Heart visit its website at www.sacredhrt.org.
Do you have a busy and stressful day ahead? Or maybe you’re just looking for an early and fun start?

For women looking for a faith-based way to start the day, the Women’s Coffee Fellowship meets every Saturday at 10 a.m. at King’s Christian Bookstore, located at 1325 Southeast Marshall St. Peruse other groups on the church’s website at www.boonecornerstone.com, or stop in at 111 Sixth St.
