Sermon: “Learning to Talk”
Our scriptures this week highlight a theme that is the focus of our October Peace with Justice series — learning to talk with one another. As people of faith, we are called to “put on Christ” when we are encountering difficult situations. Conflicts in this world are inevitable, but the mark of a Christian seems to be about how we act to be peacemakers in whatever the situation we face. I think this applies to situations with others, but also to internal conflicts we face.
Join us for worship on Sunday, September 7th at 10:30 a.m., and for coffee and fellowship after the service.

Greeting Card Collection
The Deacons are collecting greeting cards to send to church members/friends in need. We can especially use sympathy cards, and friendly “thinking of you” cards. We would like to create a collection so we can respond to needs more immediately. Please bring in unused cards and leave them in the container in the copy room if you would like to donate.
