SUNDAY SCHOOL resumes today at 9:00 am!
IN THE ADULT FORUM THIS MORNING, Fr. Dale Coleman will teach on chapter 10 of First Corinthians about St. Paul’s core belief that the gift of the Eucharist by Jesus guides every aspect of Christian life. The Eucharist is the way God proclaims Jesus presence in the world. With a few exceptions (mostly in the United States), Churches around the world celebrate the Eucharist every Sunday following the command of Jesus to do THIS in memory of Him. The major Sunday worship for those Christians wishing to be obedient therefore follows Jesus’ express command.
