Sunday Worship

In our Scripture (Matthew 13:1-9), we see God as the Great Sower. God scatters seed with wild abandon. The seeds fall on the rocky dirt, the thorny patches, the scorched ground, and the fertile soil, alike. God is willing to plant seeds of hope and possibility in any terrain. Where do you see God planting seeds in your life? Pastor Dana preaching.

The Cherub and Carol Choirs will join for I Will Give Thanks, by Philip Dietterich. Other special music will be provided by a wind quintet and a small orchestra will accompany the Sanctuary Choir in John Rutter's All Things Bright and Beautiful.
