From Our Pastor

Disciples, Not Members

I found it a powerful experience this past Sunday to share in the "Reaffirmation of the Baptismal Covenant" with you at each service of worship. I carry with me still the wonderful memory of reciting again our baptism vows, affirming our faith, and touching the waters of baptism. I am reminded of the need we have to proclaim again basic and foundational words of faith in Christ. Thank you for participating in this service of worship.

This service leads very well to our service of worship this Sunday. For this Sunday, we speak of Jesus' call of his disciples, as found in Matthew 4:12-23. With a message titled, "Disciples, Not Members," we will look at how these words differ from each other and at what this difference means for those of us who follow Jesus.
