WORSHIP

March 4
8:45 am and 10:45 am

Sunday worship will include a time of prayer for those affected by human trafficking. The scripture focus will be on the 10 Commandments – how they are a gift from God for the preservation of human dignity. In addition, artwork by local students will be on display with time for reflection and devotion as we remember victims and consider the systems that contribute to human trafficking. We’ll be reminded that our battle against sin is both personal and systemic, as we are reminded of our call to preserve the well-being of our neighbor.
