“God Forbid it , Lord” -13th Sunday after Pentecost

During troubling times we  often fail to see any purpose or meaning in the experience.  Just like the disciples, who were perplexed and upset when Jesus predicted his journey to the cross. The key:  Look for the blessings “in” and “after” the crises moments…you’ll see the hand of God leading you to greater blessings.

Keeping everyone “in the loop”
You are all important to us, and we miss seeing each other! Pastor Jack has been calling our members to introduce himself and offer pastoral assistance.  In addition, several  SOTH folks have volunteered to be a point of contact for a portion of the discipleship directory.  They will be reaching out to you in order to share the good news of what is happening here in your church.  Many thanks to all who volunteered to act as ambassadors to our church family.  Feel free to call the church office as well if we can be of service.
