Message title: Forgiveness for the unforgiven

Scripture: Ps 105:1-6, 26-45 & Matt 18:21-35

 

Rev. Rachel’s Midweek Thoughts:

I am always surprised by how the Holy Spirit is moving in the midst of our congregation. Looking over the last 4 weeks, I realized it was impossible to sum up what FPC Mt Vernon has been doing in words so I resorted to an overview in list. But a list does not fill in the moments of laughter shared, the hours poured over warming food, challenging each other in study, and generally being the body of Christ.  As I look forward to the upcoming weeks of ministry in our congregation I am excited for the baptism of Charlotte Schumm, my installation service as your pastor, the Presbyterian Women’s gathering in Centralia, the annual Lifeboat Alliance Homeless Walk, and our annual Presbyterian Women’s Rummage Sale.  I hope to see many of you at these various events and hope you will invite your friends too.  Let us see together where the Holy Spirit is moving us next!
