FUNNY STORY

Pastor Bob Stewart

CENTERING WORDS  (Amos 7, Colossians 1, Luke 10)

Pastor Bob Stewart

God sets a plumb line to judge how we care for our neighbor. 
Jesus tells the parable of the Good Samaritan to teach us how to be a good neighbor. Everything hangs in the balance.

CALL TO WORSHIP

Sharon Stewart

God calls to each one of us. Regardless of how long we have 
been a Christian. Regardless of our experience or inexperience. Regardless of our training or lack thereof. God calls to each one of us, bidding us to faithfully follow. Let us answer God’s call and join our hearts, our minds, and all our strength as we worship the Lord God Almighty.
