“Apprehend God in all things, for God is in all things. Every single creature is full of God and a book about God. Every creature is a word of God. If I spent enough time with the tiniest creature–even a caterpillar–I would never have to prepare a sermon. So full of God is every creature.”
Meister Eckhart, 14th century

SET-UP & REFRESHMENTS!
If you can arrive about 20-25 minutes early or stay a little later, we are in need of volunteers to SET UP and BREAK DOWN.  Set up consists of placing the seating, bulletins, hymnals, preparing the social hour area, etc.  Break down is the reverse. We also NEED REFRESHMENTS each Sunday for the Social Hour after church.  Please bring what you are willing to share and we will do the rest.
