April 30th 2023 -“Finding Life”

2023-04-30 "Finding Life" 11 AM

Dear friends, 

This Sunday Edythe Arnott will be leading us in worship. 

We often think of Psalm 23 as a rather idyllic picture of pastoral life.  But, as one commentator writes, danger lurks at the margins.  This is true of both Psalm 23 and John 10: 1-10.  On Sunday we’ll reflect on some of the dangers and the joys of being Jesus’ sheep.  

Jesus said, “I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture.”  We look forward to hearing Edythe Arnott’s sermon, “Finding Life.”
