Good afternoon everyone! This is the day that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
We hope you are enjoying the unseasonably mild weather. This morning, we installed Mary Marino and Michael Coleman as Deacons to serve on Consistory, the church's governing body. We congratulate Mary and Michael and bestow God's blessings on their upcoming ministry.
The theme of today's worship service was serving others. Deacons and Elders are elected to serve the church and community. In accordance with this theme, today's message is "We Do This For You" based on Matthew 25:31-46. We hope you will watch the sermon when uploaded on YouTube.
We invite you next Sunday at 10:30am for worship as we kick off a year of healing. Read below for more information.
