Rev. Rachel Helgeson will be leading our worship service Sunday.
Message title: Keep on Keeping On
Scripture: Ps 124; Matt 15:21-28
“God Welcomes All! Strangers and Friends! God’s love is strong and it never ends!” The words from this Sunday’s hymn echo in my ears. FPC Mt Vernon has welcomed 5 youth into our congregation through baptism and reaffirmation of faith, we are welcoming Southeast Illinois Presbytery on Thursday to meet and worship here, and we welcome those in our community who need a helping hand in so many different ways. FPC Mt Vernon is living out its mission of supporting each other and reaching out to the broader community. It makes me smile and reminds that Christ reaches out his hands to us as we consequently reach out our hands to others.
