Midweek Message – 11/16/17

Friends in Faith,

We were blessed and challenged to hear from the prophet, Amos, interpreted by Rabbi Brent Spodek of the Beacon Hebrew Alliance last Sunday. If you were unable to be there, I encourage you to listen to his sermon.

This Sunday, we’ll hear from Pastor Gretchen Larson-Wolbrink as she explores another prophet, Isaiah, focusing on chapter 9:1-7. Her sermon title is: “For Those Who Were in Anguish.”

After worship, we’ll look forward to celebrating at our annual Thanksgiving Dinner. Head’s-up: we’re short on food sign-ups. We’re trusting that we’ll have enough food, and we ask you to please bring some food to share if you plan on attending. Hope to see you there!

In Christ,

Pastor Ben
