Events & Activities
We will start our Lent with an Ash Wednesday offering of Ashes and Prayers. A tent will be placed at the corner of our Chapel Parking lot, across from the Miami Shores Village Recreation Center. From 9 am until 4 pm, I will be there, as well as Lisa Sullivan, and several of our Elders. Prayers will be said and ashes will be given out to-go containers. Masks will be worn and social distancing will be observed. Please, come get your ashes, and let others know about this opportunity.
This year, MSPC’s Lenten sermon series and study will go hand-in-hand. Throughout Lent, we will be focusing on the theme: Called to Repair the Breach.
The idea of the church being called to be the repairer of broken walls will be our theme for Lent. After worshipping with us on Sundays at 11 am, we will host a study via ZOOM at 12:15 pm. Each study session will focus on the missions we support through One Great Hour of Sharing. And, you will have an opportunity to hear about the important work of restoration and shalom that our church is doing around the world. If you would like to participate in the study, contact Brian Dille: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you will join us in a daily Lenten devotional: The Way to Shalom: A Lenten Journey to Peace and Wholeness from February 17th through April 4th. This series was created by Presbyterians Today and is available for free online at https://www.presbyterianmission.org/wp-content/uploads/Lent-2021.pdf You can also download it by clicking HERE.
If you need help accessing the devotional, don’t hesitate to reach out to the church office at email@example.com
You can still join our antiracism study group. They have decided to start their second book, “How to Be an Antiracist” on Feb. 13th. This group will be facilitated and led by spiritual director, Rev. Diane Shoaf. The group will spend 6 weeks on this book. To register and receive the ZOOM link, email Rev. Diane Shoaf at firstname.lastname@example.org.

More than 30,000 people are homeless in South Florida on any given day. We hope you will use this list to make your own essentials kit and keep it with you for the next time you see a person in need so that you can share God’s blessings and love.
MSPC continues to generously share its blessings during these challenging times through Pass it On Ministries. Donations of food are needed and can be dropped off anytime. Please click here for a list of the key items needed and drop off information.
