Saturday, July 1, 2017

6:00 p.m.—Worship ~ 4th Sunday after Pentecost ~ The welcome of baptism is for all God’s children.  This baptismal gift sets us free from the power of sin and death.  In today’s gospel, Christ promises that the disciple who gives a cup of cold water to the little ones serves Christ himself.  From worship we are sent on our baptismal mission:  to serve the little ones of this world and to be a sign of God’s merciful welcome.


9:00 a.m.—Altar Guild (Sarah Acker, Kathy Shermetta)
