Sunday :: Worship / Fellowship
Message for Sunday, August 20th
Remaining faithful to one’s calling as a Christian seems to be increasingly hard. There are a lot of external things that are putting pressure on us. There are cultural values that conflict with things the Bible says. There are so many voices that question a basic understanding of God’s Word. If we actually choose to follow Jesus in the way the Bible encourages us to, we will “stand out” — and quite likely face ridicule. And yet we are called to His Love and called to be Love in this world. Today we will talk about what it means to be a holy and faithful people of God.
Scripture: 1 Peter 4

Summer in the Psalms
If you are looking for a small group, Bible study, or prayer journey this summer, consider a weekly dive into the Psalms with the Prayer Ministry. It starts Wednesday June 7 at 7:00 pm at the church. Everyone is welcome, and so are snacks and drinks! Teens are invited to volunteer for child care on a pay-by-donation basis. Summer is often busy, so just come when you can. We hope participants will learn and pray favorite and obscure Psalms more deeply. Contact Nik or Elsbeth Grosfield for more information.
