WORSHIP FOR SEPTEMBER 7TH.
We will be celebrating the Sacrament of Holy Communion this Sunday and Andy continues our journey of “Generation Xodus” with a sermon entitled “On, Through, and Over.” The scripture reading is from Exodus 12:1-14. Music will be by the Campbell Choirs and Betty Salmon at 8:20 and 10:50 and the Campbell Praise Band at 9:30. The suggested reading for this week, before Sunday, is Exodus 4, 6:1-13. This will help to ‘fill in the blanks’ on our journey of faith.
