Week of October 16, 2022

In the United Methodist Church, the third Sunday of October is designated Laity Sunday.  In the observance of Laity Sunday, the lay people of the church present the worship service.  Lila Breitner organized a wonderful service for us and there were many of the church who participated.  A heartfelt thanks goes out to all of those reading, leading, singing, and praying with us yesterday.  

The hymns themselves outline the story to be told…from We are the Church to I Surrender AllSeek Ye FirstOpen My Eyes, That I May SeeWe’ve a Story to Tell to the Nations, and Pass It On.  

If you’d like to see the service, the YouTube version is here.

Have a blessed week!
