Daily Prayer for the Week Ahead

O Mystery, O Holy Love, may our hearts be stilled.  May our souls be porous and absorb your divine grace.  May we hear, feel and understand the words that quench our burning desire.  "My Beloved with whom I am well pleased."  Amen.

Come and join us for a potluck lucheon every third Sunday.  This is a good time to visit, parents don't have to cook a meal, and we all get to eat delicious food.  It is truly Church family at it's best!  This continues to be a fun time to get together and visit over a wonderful meal.  We need 2 people to set up the tables, and set out the food for the potlucks.  Please see a deacon if you would like to do this for the upcoming one --- or for another month!  This will be really appreciated by all as we love this time of fellowship.



Bible Study is led by Pastor Sherry and meets Monday mornings from 9:00 to 11:00.  We meet at the home of Bev Knox unless otherwise changed, and if so,  people will be  notified.  All are welcome to join in this time of prayer, reflection, and study.
