"Is There Room For Me At The Table?"
Mark 7:24-30
Dear Church Family,

Table fellowship has always been a very important part of human experience that signifies belonging, mutual acceptance and love.

However, disagreements and differences tend to alienate and separate us from each other.

Sometimes we may feel like we no longer belong to the family and there is no room for us at the table.

Our Creator God is inviting us ALL to take our places at His table of grace, where seats are not earned nor deserved, but gifted by sheer grace.

Tomorrow is Communion Sabbath. In preparation for the partaking of the emblems that point to Jesus, we will reflect about our place at the table of God's grace.

See you all tomorrow.

In His grip,

Pastor Aivars

Prayer Request:

Leo Vlioras received a donor heart
and successfully went through a 5 hour transplant surgery.

Leo is recovering and is on a fluid diet.

His mother, Natalia, is asking for more prayers that the heart he received is a good match and will continue to function without any complications.

She is also requesting for cards and encouraging notes to help Leo maintain his good spirits.

Stationary will be available at the Hospitality Desk, and prewritten cards are also welcome.
For more information, please contact Alma Wesley.

"You have six days in which to do your work, but remember that the seventh day, the Sabbath, is a day of rest. On that day do not work, but gather for worship. The Sabbath belongs to the Lord, no matter where you live."
