Introduction: During Lent we journey with all those around the world who will be baptized at the Easter Vigil. In today’s gospel Jesus tells Nicodemus that he must be born of water and Spirit. At the font we are a given a new birth as children of God. As God made a covenant with Abraham, in baptism God promises to raise us up with Christ to new life. From worship we are sent forth to proclaim God’s love for all the world.
Purpose: To build a Christian community that is inviting and encourages and equips people to grow as committed disciples of Christ.
Worship Servers: Each Sunday morning please meet in the workroom five minutes before the service begins for prayer with the Pastor Darcy and assisting minister.
Today’s altar flowers are given to the glory of God by Doug Strack in celebration of Lilo’s birthday.
