Upcoming Events for 3-5-18 thru 3-11-18

Looking toward Sunday…

This Sunday, we begin a new ministry! Cathy Waitman will lead Children’s Church during the 11 am service! This is worship that is made just for the kids ages Pre-K – 5th grade. We follow a Safe Church Policy. Invite the kids you know. 🙂
In sanctuary worship, we are quieting things down and heightening our attention to the “still, small voice” of God and our own True Self. Listening through prayer as well as meditation on the Scripture is an ancient Lenten practice. We hear from Wisdom in Proverbs 1, “Look, I’ll pour out my spirit on you. I’ll reveal my words to you.” Come and rest, come and listen to the voice of God speaking to you.
Ellen Peterson will provide special music during the service.
