Scripture: Psalm 60: 8-20 and John 14: 15-21
Sermon: Close Encounter
We welcome the Rev. Patricia Budd Kepler as our guest preacher and worship leader this coming Sunday. We also welcome the Rev. Thomas Kepler. The Keplers have a decades-long relationship with Clarendon Hill. Pat was the pastor here before Karl Gustafson, and she recently served as Interim University Chaplain at Tufts. Tom served here before Pat did, and he was also a valuable member of the choir. Pat and Tom currently serve as pastors at First Presbyterian Church in Waltham. It is always a blessing to have them with us.
Join us for worship on Sunday, May 25th at 10:30 a.m., and for coffee and fellowship after the service.
