"Space for Pain" From Pastor Rob
stainglass woman at well
      Read John 4:1-42. No, don’t keep reading this. Come back to this, after, you’ve opened your Bible and read John 4. Thank you for doing that. The Samaritan woman is alone, apart from the community of women doing daily chores together. She lives with a man who wouldn’t even honor her with marriage. Five others have divorced or widowed her. The Samaritan woman lives with deep hurt, real pain. First century society collectively agreed to cast out women in her situation, through no fault of their own.
In John, it is to her, not the disciples nor the temple or synagogue leaders, but to this Samaritan woman that Jesus announces his identity: the Messiah (4:26).

Breakfast Fellowship - Sunday, March 20 from 9:40am to 10:10am
As we start to ease back into life in a post-pandemic world, it’s time to start thinking POTLUCK!!
We’re kicking things off with a Breakfast Potluck on Sunday, March 20th. Bring fruit, biscuits, a favorite breakfast dish to share and join us before Sunday School for a time of eating and fellowship. This would be an excellent opportunity to invite a friend or neighbor and to check out a Sunday School class.

Want to help with the set-up and/or clean-up? Contact the church office, 919.967.3056.
