June 21 Summer Worship Begins! “Around the Table with Jesus”
The Reverend John Sanborn will be our guest preacher this morning. Throughout Jesus’ ministry, he was found gathering with people for meals. Join us this summer as we explore some of these meal stories from the gospel of Luke. NOTE: this will also be our theme for our intergenerational Vacation Bible School in July! Join us prior to worship for our Pre-service Hymn Sing!
