Our sermon series, Overflowing, continues this Sunday with Rev. Jim Warren preaching on II Corinthians 9:6-12, "Honoring Community and Culture." We are stewards of the communities and cultures in which we live, and God calls each of us to contribute generously to society out of our abundance. We are to build deep and genuine relationships. God's grace will overflow into the lives of others as we do so. Come to the 9:00 traditional or 10:15 progressive service (One and All) to hear his message.
This is our last Sunday of the season with the Drexler Singers, two of whom are graduating this May. Come hear their beautiful gifts of music in the first service and bid them a fond farewell. At 10:15 the One and All band will kick off a unique worship experience in Fellowship Hall. Bring a friend, and feel free to promise breakfast, as it is always part of the morning in Fellowship Hall!
More about the

Overflowing with these words, "
God's grace simply and abundantly overflows into our lives and hearts, particularly as we celebrate the great gift of Jesus' love this Easter season."
