2023: The Year of Story
Memory Verse: Acts 1:8
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Council asks the congregation to pray for guidance in the upcoming year, that we may be a welcoming space for authentic conversations, and that we continue our prayers for strength and comfort for those who need it most.
Additionally, council wants to thank the entire congregation for its generous and dedicated giving throughout the year.
