The Third Sunday After Pentecost
“It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground is the smallest of all the seeds on earth; yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all shrubs.”
Sometimes, we look at our lives and wonder what we really have to offer the world. “I am not like others who seem to have so many gifts and abilities.”
Isn’t it wonderful to know that we are a part of a reality, as followers of Jesus, that gives infinite potential to the small things? How may this insight inspire your faith in what God can do in and through your life and the lives of others?
Worship at 8:30 & 11:00 will be in-person with no reservations required.

THIS Sunday, June 13th, bring something to church that you have grown.
Examples are plants, flowers, or items from your garden. When you arrive place these items at the baptismal font or on the steps at the altar.
We will use them for our faith talk during the children’s sermon. (Don’t worry! You won’t have to say anything or appear on camera).
This Sunday, Jesus invites us to look up in faith at plants and seeds and see the Greater Than Me thing that God is doing in our lives and world as his kingdom comes to us. Thank you for sharing! Check out Mark 4: 26-34 if you would like more information.
