The Zoom link will be sent by email on Saturday.
Sunday School Begins at 9:45 am. The link will be sent on Saturday.
The topic for this week is: Jesus, Mary and Martha
Big Idea: Jesus is priority #1, so we can make time for Him first.
It’s really easy to confuse doing things FOR Jesus and spending time WITH Jesus. This weekend, we learn that important lesson through the story of two sisters named Mary and Martha and their encounter with Jesus.

Vestry Highlights: January 11, 2021
Bible Study: Fridays @ noon - 4 weeks: The Twelve Apostles
The twelve men who were Jesus’ first followers were a motley crew. They are described in the gospels as ordinary men who stumbled and fumbled their way along the path to which Jesus called them. We may feel we have known some of them for most of our lives: Peter, John, Matthew, and Judas Iscariot. Some have briefer stories: Philip, Thomas, and Andrew. Others we know only by name: James son of Zebedee; James son of Alpheus; Bartholomew, Thaddeus, Simon the Zealot.
In January, we will have a 4-week study on Jesus’ apostles.
The Zoom link will be sent each week.
