"Thingdom's Kingdoms"
February 2
, 2020 - 10:30am
Rev. Kathie S. Pownall preaching
Matthew 5:1-12

This Sunday we will celebrate Holy Communion and reflect upon the well-known words of Jesus in the Beatitudes, as told in the Gospel of Matthew. Allow the message of these words to lessen your anxiety for "tomorrow." These blessings give us the promises of God's love. Prayerfully let us reflect upon how we can better the Kingdom here and now. 



This Sunday, February 2
