"What Shall I Bring?" 

The answer is lived out in this week's scriptures
by the widow of Zarapeth (I Kings 17)
and in Jesus' story of the Widow's gift of two coins. 
Bring your heart - and the rest will follow. 

With Children: Children join in worship and then attend church school; returning to share in the Sacrament of Communion. 

The Word:   1 Kings 17:8-24  and Mark 12:38-44.  This week we meet two widows, one from Zerapeth, and the other who gives only two coins. 

Our Message:  "Could You Do It?"
Though the texts this week all involve women, the message is really asking us where our heart is, and how that is proven by what we do in life.  Some people say one thing and do the opposite...God sees through it all!

Thursday Morning Study:  10 am, Hewitt Hall
Beginning a New Study: 
THINKING ABOUT RELIGION AND VIOLENCE

As recently as 50 years ago, increases in social opportunity, education, and tolerance led many to predict that violent religious actions would soon be relegated to the past. Not only did such predictions fail to become realities, religious violence has actually increased rather dramatically since the 1970s. Terrorist actions dominate our thinking, but religious violence also extends to legal or social coercion, defamation or misrepresentation, and practices of self-harm.

This course explores some of the factors involved in these developments by looking to the history of religious violence, its multiple manifestations, its scriptural justifications, and how its perpetrators perceive the world. Only by understanding the roots, causes, and circumstances of religious violence can we grapple with it intellectually and practically.

Join us! 
Or let the office know if you'd like to do a study  on Sunday mornings at 8:30 am.
