Message title: A little bit late but just in time!

Scripture: Ps 19 & Matt 21:28-46

 

World Communion Sunday: October 5th, 2014

Midweek Thoughts:

Have you ever been a little bit late but just on time?  I went to a clergy gathering on Monday a little bit over an hour away and was worried that Chris and I would miss everything.  It turned out while we were a little bit late we were just in time.  We were able to fellowship, we were able to eat, we were able to catch up with others.  This week’s text challenges us to see these people, to not lose our cool but to see how God can use them.  If you have time we hope that you can come and join us for the rummage sale this Friday and Saturday.  We hope that you can celebrate World Communion with us on Sunday.  And we hope that you feel welcome even if you are a little bit late because you will be just in time.
