Week Four: Go to the Source

We continue studying John's Gospel as we look at Jesus' teachings to his disciples in chapters 13 through 17. Discover the Genius of Jesus, and hear his guidance for your life as a Christian.

Psalm for the Day: Psalm 148
Scripture for the Week: John 15:1-17


Almighty God, whom truly to know is everlasting life: Grant us so perfectly to know your Son Jesus Christ to be the way, the truth, and the life, that we may steadfastly follow his steps in the way that leads to eternal life; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity
of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Fellowship Hall Almost Paid Off!
Thank you to all those who have supported the building of our Fellowship Hall. Our goal is to have it paid off by our 175th Anniversary Celebration this September. We only have around $5000 left to raise to pay off the loan. If you would like to designate a gift towards the Fellowship Hall fund, please be sure to specify that by writing "Fellowship Hall" in the memo of your check, or on your offering envelope. Keep up the great work!

Our last meeting of this semester will be April 28th. To celebrate, we will meet in the Blum Lobby at 7pm and go see the new movie Jungle Book together. Don't worry about the cost!
