This Sunday is Mothers’ Day and we will be offering an opportunity to musically pay tribute to mothers. Instead of a selected hymn for our middle hymn – people can name a hymn that their mom liked or that represents their mom and we will sing the first verse of that hymn. If your mom is still around and you would like to phone her and have her listen to our congregation sing for her – that might be a nice idea.
The scripture story from Acts (16:16-34) will be our focus. The sermon is entitled: “The Unshackled Gospel.” It might be safer for the gospel to be shackled. Maybe we even contribute to the shackling? Just a thought.
We will be receiving our Blanket Sunday offering for Church World Service. Checks can be made to the church with a memo line “Blankets.”
Chessy Kelley will be with us to lead in a Meditation Workshop from 11:00-11:30 in the sanctuary (after coffee).
I look forward to spending time with you on Sunday morning.
In Peace and IN JOY
