This Weekend in Worship:
Healing Prayer Services this Weekend
Please join us next weekend for our special Healing Services at all worship times. Consider bringing someone with you who is in need of healing; a neighbor, co-worker, friend, or family member. These services are for healing of every kind, whether physical, spiritual, or emotional. We will take time within worship to anoint with oil, to pray individually with people, and at our 11:15 a.m. service, we will have candles to light in prayer.
Preaching: Pastor Craig Brown
Sermon: "Building with Living Stones - Belonging"
We begin with our shared faith in Christ. The power of Christ is made know in bringing people together in faith. As we belong to Christ, so we belong to one another. Christ is at the center, core of who we are. Our standing, our place, our sense of belonging, our true sense of self happens because Jesus is raised and he comes to me and he said, come follow me. We follow, and we discover that Christ has called others as well, and we belong together in Christ.
Scriptures: 1 Peter 1:17-23 NRSV
