Sunday, September 4, 11:00 Worship
After more than a 3-month trial of convergent worship, you have provided us with important feedback.
A total of 35 worship surveys were turned in and have been prayerfully considered. Additionally, conversations occurred with several Sunday School teachers including extended discussions with our Children’s Coordinator. As such, Pastor Michelle will make recommendations to the Administrative Council this Sunday evening on what seems the best way forward.
It is true that we must all give some to gain some. And the community is strongest that works together,
despite their differences or preferences. “Making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world” remains our mission.
May this mandate be the compass in all our thinking and doing.
On September 11, we will begin the book “If You Can Keep It: The Forgotten Promise of American Liberty.”
Historian Eric Metaxas ponders the ways in which Americans are losing the promises of the American Republic as citizens forfeit responsibilities and refuse to understand the intention of American ideals.
On the eve of this important election this study is timely as we consider our responsibilities as Americans and as concerned human beings.
