Wednesday Greetings!

Many thanks to all who helped make the Hunger Walk a success – and for all who participated on Sunday in living out our mission statement of working, witnessing and worshiping together to advance God’s purpose in all of life.

This coming Sunday is Graduation and Promotion Sunday.  During worship we will honor all our graduates as well as all students entering a new level of schooling.  The Scripture for Sunday comes from 1 Corinthians 13:9-13.  Paul reminds his readers that the Christian journey is one of growth and learning.  In worship, we will lift up the spiritual practice of study.

I hope you will be able to join us on Sunday!
