Sunday 9/18 11am worship

This Sunday our lessons focus on God's strange willingness to extend grace beyond the bounds of what we might think is appropriate. Jesus tells the story of day laborers who come late to work and still get paid.

"The Late Comers," Jesus Mafa, Cameroun

We remember and celebrate God's grace in a service of Holy Communion beginning at 11 o'clock, Pastor Judith Spindt preaching and presiding. After the service, we will gather for refreshments, and there will be a Bible study on the letter to the Hebrews.

All are welcome in God's house!
