INTRODUCTION - The image of the Good Shepherd shows us how the risen Christ brings us to life. It is the relationship between the shepherd and the sheep, one of mutual knowledge and love, that gives the shepherd authority. The shepherd’s willingness to lay down his life for the sheep shows his love. First John illustrates what it means to lay down our lives for one another by the example of sharing our wealth with any sister or brother in need.
Worship Servers: Each Sunday morning please meet in the workroom five minutes before the service begins for prayer with Pastor Darcy and the assisting minister.
Today’s altar flowers are given to the glory of God by Roger & JoAnn Rudy in memory of Joan Ward and in honor of Sue Conklin.
