All Church Potluck on Sunday

All-Church Potluck-Plus
Join us this Sunday for the All-Church Fall Potluck-Plus! Following worship we will head to the Sandbar. The main dish will be provided, but we ask that you please bring a side dish and a dessert to share, and drop them off in the Sandbar before church. We will have seating inside the Sandbar for people who are sun-sensitive, and shaded seating on the Sandbar balcony for everyone else. Since the church will be providing the main dish, a collection box will be available for donations if you choose to contribute.

Where We Are One:
The New Reality of the Kingdom of God- The Kingdom of Being

This week’s message by Eric Wilson will be from the text of Romans 14:13-18.

Adult Bible Classes
The class entitled “Resurrection of the body from the Biblical perspective” meets in AC 290.
