Quarterly Meeting Update
At our quarterly congregational meeting last Sunday evening, we announced the Servant Board’s proposal regarding our sanctuary seating.  This was informed by our Sanctuary Seating Survey, which showed a clear majority of our congregation preferred the pews, while there was also a sizeable minority who said that chairs would be helpful for them.  In light of this, we plan to keep the pews overall while replacing some of the back pews in the side sections with chairs.  The inside project of our Missions Festival special offering in November will go toward the cost of re-covering our pews and purchasing these chairs.  Our hope is that this will allow more people to fully engage in worship and fellowship.

 

Sermon 
Philippians 2:12-18 flows out of the beautiful picture of Christ’s humble obedience that led him to the cross for our sake.  Following Christ, we too are called to humble obedience and joyful sacrifice, and God himself makes it all possible.

Worth a Look

How should Christians pray during election seasons?  Mika Edmonson and Russell Moore discuss:
