When we gather for worship on Sunday mornings, why do we come? In fact, how do we live each day in relation to God? In our consumer culture it's too easy for us to treat God as another commodity we use for our own happiness, rather than being humbled by God's glory. "God's Glory or Our Own?" is the message for this Sunday based on Jeremiah 1:4-10; 7:1-11.
The altar flowers are given with gratefulness for God's goodness by Jeff and Jane Buehrle.
Sponsorships for 2015 Altar Flowers are now available to reserve at the Information Center.
