Message title: "Keep your lamps trimmed and burning"

Scripture: Psalm 34:1-10,22, Matthew 25:1-12

 

Pastor’s Midweek Thoughts

Keep you lamps trimmed and burning echoes through my ears as we consider the life of this congregation. 

FPC Mount Vernon has celebrated the future life in our congregation along side the celebration of 160 years of life here this past weekend. 

We will celebrate the creativity and innovation of our youth this weekend with a Trunk or Treat / Fall Festival: which will include treats and activities.

We will honor all the saints who have gone before us in worship this Sunday lighting a candle to remember them. 

As a congregation we are keeping our lamps trimmed and burning.  Have you considered how you are keeping your lamps trimmed and burning in your faith life and in the world?
