November 21,2021 – 9:00 AM Worship at the Middle school.

This week we are going to study THREE of the articles of the Augsburg Confession: Article VII (Concerning the Church), Article VIII (What Is the Church), and Article XIII (Concerning the Use of the Sacraments).  These articles are all interrelated and will serve as a good foundation for the upcoming weeks when we dig into the sacraments.  Join us Sunday morning at 9:00 as we study what Scripture has to say about the purpose of the church.

We don’t have a lector or treat-bringer, so please reply all if you’re able to help out.  The readings for this week are:

Isaiah 55:6-11

Psalm 50:7-23

1 Corinthians 12:12-31

Mark 4:1-25
