"What's in It for Me?" Come Sunday at 9:00 or 10:15 a.m. and contemplate this question, presented by Rev. Jim Warren in his sermon. The scripture passage: Mark 1:29-39. The
crowds followed Jesus because he could heal the sick. Why do we follow Jesus? Do we follow Jesus because of what's in it for us? Jesus' way is a much harder way.
Attend either the traditional 9:00 or progressive 10:15 One and All service for great music! It was good to see several visitors (your guests) last week and we hope you'll keep asking your family and friends to come with you to our welcoming church. As always, we have a fellowship time around 10:00 a.m. where you can visit over coffee and donut holes, and the 10:15 service offers a very casual and comfortable environment of music, scripture, a sermon, and prayer. Gather a few minutes early for a light breakfast and coffee (in Fellowship Hall).
This month we are collecting for
Center For Hope Food Pantry. Non-perishable food items needed include rice, rice dinners, potato dinners, pasta and sauce, Hamburger Helper, dinner meals, cereal, and pull-top canned vegetables and fruit.
This Food Pantry does a great job helping people!
