Worship Bulletin - August 24th, 2014


Come and experience the wonders of being the Church!  “Ordinary Time,” the period between Pentecost and Advent, is a wonderful movement through which the Church is lead to re-explore the wonders of the Christian faith.  During this period we don’t only go over what Christians believe, but what it means for us to believe these things.  So that together, as a fellowship, we might better serve our Lord and bless this world.
