The Weekly News

May 27, 2018

WHEN WE say God is the triune God, we are saying something about who God is beyond, before, and after the universe: that there is community within God. Our experience of this is reflected in Paul’s words today. When we pray to God as Jesus prayed to his Abba (an everyday, intimate parental address), the Spirit prays within us, creating between us and God the same relationship Jesus has with the one who sent him.

THIS MORNING, we recognize during worship all those who are graduating this year. Congratulations to these young men & women:

CONGREGATIONAL VITALITY SURVEY- On June 10 a survey will be distributed during worship that will help us measure how well we nurture relationships with God, each other and the community,  This survey is a part of a Central States Synod initiative and will be the theme for the Central States Synod Assembly.  More information to come!
