DEDICATION SUNDAY | Sunday, December 10th (During Each Worship)
Today, during our worship services at 8 am, 9:30 am, and 11 am, within the "Generosity" element of worship. Pastor Mario will lead us in a well-rounded moment of prayer and guided meditation to consider our lives as followers and disciples of Christ. Today, while the tension of conflict and peace dwells within us, we step forward in allegiance to the work of God for the sake of the kingdom of God and the proclamation of God's love in the world.

We continue to trust God, and we give thanks for the generous congregation that we have. To God be the Glory!
