Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this? (John 11:25-26 KJV)
Congregational Dialogue Sermon from Laity Sunday on October 20, 2019. Reading by Mitch Clark. Prayer by Steve Walker. Ways we embody the light of Christ in our congregation led by Karen Heise. Ways our congregation works for justice led by Steve Milam. Ways our congregation encourages people to use the means of grace, especially regular prayer, study, worship, and service led by Ginalee Wyatt. Holy conversation among the congregation.
A “Blessing Box” will be built by the big old tree at church, newly named “The Giving Tree” by our congregation last Sunday. The unanimous decision to add this project came after several uplifting testimonies about similar blessing boxes at other churches in our community and across the country. Everyone will be free to share food staples on the honor system of “Take what you need and bring what you can.”
