Looking Toward this Sunday February 25, 2018
2nd Sunday in Lent
Scripture Lessons: Numbers 14: 1-4 and Luke 22: 24-27
Sermon: Servant Leadership in the Age of 140 Characters
Rev. Dr. Samuel L. Adams will preach at 8:30 and 9:45 in Lingle Chapel and 11 in the sanctuary.
The guest preacher on Sunday is Dr. Samuel L. Adams, our first Theologian in Residence, a program made possible by the grant for campus ministry DCPC received from Union Presbyterian Seminary and the D. Thomason Fund. Dr. Adams graduated from Davidson College and has also earned a Master of Divinity from the University of Chicago Divinity School and a Ph.D. from Yale University. An ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (USA), he has served congregations in New Haven, CT, Chicago, IL, and Richmond, VA. He is a Professor of Old Testament at Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond, VA. In his sermon, Dr. Adams will focus on Christian service and discipleship and the difficulty of humble leadership in a culture that encourages grandeur.
The Geneva Choir will sing Call to Remembrance at the 8:30 service.
The Chancel Choir, with Christina Tarry, soprano will sing Be Thou My Vision at the 11:00 service.
The congregation will celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism
at the 9:45 a.m. service with Cor
