Worship With Us in the Season of Pentecost

Sunday, November 19, 2017
at 10:00 a.m. in the Sanctuary 

Our readings during November speak of the end times. Zephaniah proclaims that the coming day of the Lord will be filled with wrath and distress. Paul says it will come like a thief in the night and urges us to be awake and sober. Jesus tells the parable of the talents, calling us to use our gifts, while we still have time, for the greater and common good. In a world filled with violence and despair, we gather around signs of hope—word, water, bread and wine—eager to welcome the good news of Christ’s coming among us.

Readings
Zephaniah 1:7, 12-18
Psalm 90:1-8 [9-11] 12
1 Thessalonians 5:1-11
Matthew 25:14-30

The Transition Team is focused on hearing from all interested members and to that end, has scheduled a congregational lunch and gathering for Sunday, November 19 immediately following the worship service. This will be a dynamic and meaningful opportunity and will help the Team to take a significant step forward in the process. Please mark the date on your calendar and plan to participate.

Greening of the Church
