The Ninth Sunday after Pentecost

We are God's Masterpiece

This weekend we focus on the truth that God is the Potter and that we are the clay. This means that God shapes and molds and reshapes us as he sees fit. He does this for our good, to save us. Even though it is not comfortable and may even hurt to be reformed and reshaped, we ask that God make us his perfect masterpiece. To him be the glory!

Here is God's Word for this coming weekend:
Jeremiah 18:1-11
Colossians 1:12-23
Luke 10:38-42

"I rejoiced with those who said to me, 'Let us go to the house of the LORD.'" (Psalm 122:1) I look forward to and rejoice at the thought of worshiping with you!

      - In Christ, Pastor Jon Klein

If you are away any weekend or work on Sunday mornings, come and worship with us at church on Monday night at 7:00 pm. I hope to see you there!
