Worship Around the Cross


On Sunday, June 10, we will shift to our summer worship times of 8:00 am and 10:00 am. Worship is an important part of our spiritual lives and a key component to forming us into the mind of Christ. The commandment of: “Remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy.” Sabbath is more about having the space to seek God’s presence in our lives through word and sacrament than just resting.
