Hutto Lutheran Church
October 9, 2019
Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost
We are one body in Christ, sent in faith to share God's Love, through Worship, Service, Fellowship and Witness.
From the desk of Vicar Katie
I'm looking forward to these next 3 weeks where we spend more time considering God's abundance.
I hope you enjoyed hearing from Eric Montoya in church and how he has experienced God's abundance in his life and through VBS here this summer. Thank you for sharing from your heart Eric!
God's abundance is really so much more than we can really comprehend - and that abundant love is for you! The fullness of God is desired and promised for YOU! May God guide us and keep us as we try and live in and out of that abundance.
Grace, peace and every good be with you!
Office will be closed Monday, 10/14, for Columbus Day
