Sunday, Dec 8, 2019. 9AM

This Sunday we continue our Confirmation Class series with the First Article of the Apostles’ Creed.  Twelve simple words, but incredibly profound (and the anti-dote for several modern-day heresies).  Please join us this Sunday morning at 9:00 as we consider the work of the First Person of the Trinity.  Invite a friend or two to come along.
I will incorporate the readings into the message again this week so we don’t need a lector, but treats would sure be welcome.  Please reply if you’re able to help out.  The readings for this week will include:
Also, please remember that we will be taking up a special collection for mattresses for the orphanage in Tanuku.  Thank you in advance for your help.
