This Holy Union
Based on Exodus 20 (The Ten Commandments)
October 5, 2014
(Peacemaking, World Communion)

In our sacrament of communion, we are reminded that the table is open to Judas and Peter, and all who fail to live our covenant completely. The great ‘wedding feast,’ which the sacrament is sometimes called, invites us to renew the commitment again and again. On this World Communion Sunday, our God says, ‘I love you; I want to be your God; do you want to be my people?’ And we get to say, ‘I do.’

Anthem: Bread of the World
Children’s Formation Focus: Communion as Covenant
Adult Formation Focus: Sexual Misconduct Prevention Training


On Wednesdays at 4pm there is Bible study/Teach the Preacher at the church- ALL ARE WELCOME!

Please see the calendar on the "Connect" page for all Church events, and for Directions.
