    Upcoming Services, Events & Opportunities to Serve

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12th FROM 7:00-9:00 PM - GRIEFSHARE SUPPORT GROUP MEETING IN THE UPPER FELLOWSHIP HALL.  TOPIC:  "Is This Normal?"  GriefShare is a faith-based support group for those recovering from the loss of a loved one or friend.  Light refreshments will be served.  ALL ARE WELCOME!

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 15th AT 9:30 AM - FOURTEENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST - WELCOME SUNDAY.  The Message, "Party Time," will be based on Luke 15:1-10.  Jesus' critics accuse him of eating and drinking with sinners.  In response, Jesus tells two memorable parables: the shepherd who searches for the wandering, lost sheep and the woman who seeks the one lost coin.  The Church, God's people, includes those beyond the bounds of our church membership rolls.  The people of God are all those lost-and-found sinners for whom Jesus has searched.  There will be a Children's Message. The Chancel Choir will sing an anthem, "Praise God With Music!" words by Don Besig & Nancy Price; music by Don Besig.  ALL ARE WELCOME!
