June 2nd 2024 -“Setting aside the sacred cows”

Dear friends,

THIS SUNDAY the Rev. Linda Faith Chalk will be leading us in worship.

PLEASE NOTE there is ongoing construction on Green Street keeping Green from Oak to Mercille closed until the end of summer, Birch is now a two-way street accessible from Desaulniers. 

OUR OLD TESTAMENT LESSON is 1 Samuel 3: 1-20, “The Lords Calls Samuel”.  In this passage, we encounter the young Samuel’s calling by God.  As Samuel serves under Eli in the temple, he hears God’s voice but initially does not recognize it.  With Eli’s guidance, Samuel learns to respond, “Speak, Lord, for your servant hears”.  Samuel was given word from God to tell Eli and it was not good news, but he respected God and obeyed Him.  This week’s sermon is titled “Setting Aside the Sacred Cows”.
