We usually do not meet if school is out for Holiday breaks, teacher in services, etc., unless special plans have been made. If you have any questions please contact Wendy.

Sunday’s Sermon has Changed

Last week, I warned you all to listen carefully to the Exodus reading because it was going to be part of the sermon this Sunday (September 13, 2020). I was wrong. Things have moved in a different direction, I’m going to be preaching not on Exodus (both the book and the event) but on Matthew 18:21-35. I’m doing this because the passage is about a concern (the need to forgive in order to be forgiven) that has cropped up a lot in pastoral conversations. I will eventually be referencing the Exodus, but not until Easter Sunday 2021. I’ve learned and thought a lot about the Gospel reading, I’m looking forward to sharing some of that work with you.
