Sunday’s message is on Commandment/Word Number Six entitled, "Killing Beyond Murdering" as I continue my summer series on the Ten Commandments. These words are so big and so broad that they frame a comprehensive view of theistic worship and morality. This week's words, "Do not kill," seem safe to those fingered or identified in the other messages. However, it's often violated by most of us in ways we may not even notice. When understood, this commandment provides a stunning look at the Creator's plans for human life to flourish.
Holy Communion on Sunday - Sunday we partake of Holy Communion in celebration of our oneness in Jesus Christ. If you have taken a public stand for Jesus Christ and are taking His grace seriously via actively following Him, please join in the feast.
