Midweek Message – 3/23/17

Friends in faith,

Last Sunday we heard the story of how God seeks us out and longs to celebrate with us—and we were confronted by the ways we may refuse the invitation. This Sunday, we’ll hear another challenging parable—the Rich Man and Lazarus—found in Luke 16:19-31. Last Sunday, we heard a powerful anthem from our choir and this Sunday we look forward to musical offerings from the worship band.

But, before Sunday, I hope you’ll consider joining our Presbyterians 101 class on Saturday (see below). Our first session was filled with provocative conversation. There are two more session left, including this Saturday, and it’s not too late to get in on the learning!

Faithfully,

Pastor Ben
