The Youth Group, with the help of the parents, held a delicious picnic following the worship service. The pulled pork BBQ was donated by Shawn’s Smokehouse and the chicken was donated by The Culpeper Cattle Company. The free will offering collected will help pay expenses for Synod Assembly and other youth trips. Due to chilly weather we held our picnic in the Fellowship Hall and still were able to enjoy an indoor game of corn hole.
This Sunday we will hear, “Jesus, looking at him, loved him and said, “You lack one thing; go, sell what you own, and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me.”
This is a tough teaching, but one that invites us to lots of thought and conversation! How do we live generously in our society today?
We read in the Book of Acts that at Pentecost, Jews from every corner of the known world were gathered together, and they all heard in their own languages the disciples speaking of the good news of Jesus! They could all understand!
This Sunday, during our worship service at 10am, we will have a special reading in many languages to celebrate this event. We will also be confirming one of our high school students in her faith in Christ through Affirmation of Baptism. Please join us!
