Announcements

THIS MORNING we celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion. Jesus invites all who are weary and heavy laden to find rest in him. He invites the young, old, rich, poor, strong, and weak—all who have faith in him to come to the feast and be nourished. The bread is gluten-free.


WORLD HUNGER: Today, on World Hunger Sunday, we bring our offerings to God and ask him to use them to supply the needs of those living in poverty to achieve Uzima--a sense of wholeness and life as God intended it to be. To learn more about how your gifts will be used to equip communities around the world, please visit worldrenew.net
