Our "Did You Hear the One About..." sermon series has just two more installments, and this Sunday's is,
"Did You Hear the One About... the Investment Brokers?"
The Parable of the Ten Pounds tells about a nobleman who entrusted his money to his servants and expected them to make a profit on the money. God expects us to use wisely what God has given us. Read the scripture here:
The church gathers for worship at ONE service this Sunday! Please come at 10:00 instead of your usual worship time. In addition to a "combined" worship service instead of a traditional and progressive service, we will celebrate Dawn Craig, our Office Administrator, and wish her well on her excellent adventure of moving to Memphis, TN. After the service, ALL are invited to gather in Fellowship Hall to wish her well and enjoy a light lunch together. It promises to be a fun and delicious experience, and Dawn looks forward to visiting with each of us before her departure in the next couple of weeks.
There will be no childcare this Sunday.
