On this Mother's Day Sunday, Rev. Jim Warren will preach from Mark 16 about, "Lessons from the Women."
About the sermon, Jim says, "When the
women came to Jesus' tomb Easter morning and discovered that it was empty, they were filled with terror, amazement, and fear. What can we learn from their reaction to Jesus' resurrection?" Come hear Jim's sermon at the 9:00 a.m. traditional service, or at the 10:15 a.m. progressive service in Fellowship Hall. The scripture passage is Mark 16:1-18.
Once again our gift of music at the 9:00 a.m. traditional service will be a solo. This time Carolyn Stucky will sing the beautiful, "I Stand Amazed in the Presence." If you attend the 10:15 a.m. One and All service, you'll hear the One and All Band play. At this service you may enjoy a light breakfast as well as prayer stations to assist in your worship.
Gifts for Another Table:
In May we are collecting items for our neighbor, the Regional Alternative School. Please bring the items they depend on each day: shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothpaste, hand lotion, Chapstick, and diapers. Bring a few each week if you can! Thank you!
