Sundays at 10am

THIS WEEK: July22, 2018 - 10am

Sermon  “Broken Walls” - Dr. Sylvia Lee Mann

Special Music this Sunday - Psalm 23, a setting by Sylvia Lee Mann

Jeremiah 23:1-6 with Psalm 23
Ephesians 2:11-22
Mark 6:30-34, 53-56


Focus Questions:

1. What is the long journey that your church has taken; from where did you come, and where are you now? How have you sensed God's presence with you along the way?

2. What is the "foundation" of your church?

3. What does it mean to a "household of God"?

4. Who are the people who may be effectively kept out by the walls of your church, both physical and metaphorical?

5. How does a church (a house, a people) stay mobile when it's closely identified with massive, solid structures?




 If you are looking for a church where you are welcome, and where you can make a difference - please join us!



In the face of division and fear, let us resolve to truly "Be the Church"..



 Please - Plan to join us to have a great Sunday morning, and -  Feel free to bring your family and friends as we continue celebrate the triumph of Love...and contemplate our response




After worship,  stay for a fellowship - snacks, coffee, tea, etc... something we always enjoy!
