Weekly Update - 4/12

Thank you Patrick for the lesson this morning "An Invitation From Jesus", with the text taken from Matthew 11:28-30.
Patrick explained that the yoke that Jesus talks about, is like a student being in submission to his teacher and learning from him.  The yoke symbolizes obedience and Christian obedience includes learning from Christ.

Over the next several weeks he'll be talking to us about spiritual discipline as we CONNECT WITH GOD.

  • Ruth Ann Stallings has been released from the hospital.
  • Harley Staley has also been released from the hospital.
