Please join us this Sunday, February 1st, in worship at the 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00 Services.

Rev. Gene Thomas will be preaching at all 3 services on Luke 22:14-20.

“After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said, “Take this and divide it among you. For I tell you I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.” And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.” (Luke 22:17-20)
