Our church opens its doors...

Vision and Mission 2016

August 25th, 2016

Again, we will celebrate Worship with Rev. Sheri Edwards Dalton leading us. This is the second of two weekends that we are blessed to have her lead us in Worship. This is our last Sunday of Worship in the month of August and next weekend will be Labor Day weekend marking the end of summer, the beginning of Fall and the return to routines.

On the liturgical calendar, we are in what is called Ordinary time but I happen to think it is anything but ordinary. In fact, one might say it is extraordinary time. The liturgical color is green which represents growth, hope, new life e.g. new life with God in His Kingdom. And we are blessed in the Pacific Northwest in that we have a lot of natural green around us and a lot of new growth. All this green both in the church and outside the church reminds us to place our hope in Christ. I have always thought that one of the best ways to nourish and encourage that growth is to come to worship, listen to the scriptures that are read, the praise and music played and the sermon that is shared.

Very appropriately, Rev. Sheri’s sermon is entitled “Invitations” and you are invited to grow your faith and hope this Sunday @ RPC!
