Other News, and Coming Up!
Radical Sending
Sunday, August 25 after both services, Board Room
Have you wondered why we end our worship service by sending forth with "Let us go into the world in peace to love and serve the Lord"? Jesus didn't just call people to come, he called them to be sent. Join us for part 2 of this class, as we engage a Church Next video " Radical Sending" and reflect together how St. Francis can live out our mission together as we come together to serve our world for peace, justice and love.
