Thank you to those who assisted so ably this summer during our pastor's absence for vacation and study leave.
This fall we engage in examining our Christian roots searching through our "spiritual family tree," to discover who we are called to be as Children of Abraham. This unique position of being called to witness to the world as God's chosen people who bring the good news to all people is something we strive to recover in our identity. Once we have understood this unique calling we can utilize the gifts which God has provided us in service to humanity in the fulfilment of God's redemptive purposes.
