Weekly Newsletter Updated Every Thursday

We will have combined worship services on Sunday mornings through August 13. The services will start at 10.30 am. Please mark your calendars accordingly.

 

Coming Sunday, July 23, we will have a combined worship service at 10.30 a.m.

Sunday morning we continue to hear about the theme, “This Is Christ’s Glorious Church!” It is easy to think of the church as a community gathered. But God also delights in the church scattered, the church sent from worship into the world. There, in the communities to which God sends us, we are ambassadors of God’s Kingdom. This is the adventure Jesus leads us in. Do you dare follow?  Come and go!

Scripture reading: Isaiah 45:20-25 | Acts 1:1-11, 8:1-8

Sermon: “This Is Christ’s Glorious Church: (7) Missional” by Rev. Mark Vermaire
