Worship during September finds us looking at Jesus’ ministry as reported in the gospel of Mark. There we see the way that he met both obstacles and success, frustration and joy, and how he used those to teach his followers what to expect, too, as they work for the kingdom of God.
September 9 will also be when we return to our normal schedule of services at 8:30 and 10:45, with Sunday School at 9:30. That day will also include our Rally Day celebration. Family Worship will be held at 9:30 on the third Sunday of each month starting on September 16.
