This Sunday at PMC
God’s trajectory is from darkness to dawn, despair to new hope, death to new birth, and as we are drawn into the light, Jesus wants to show us what faithfulness is as we learn to risk, to dream, and to live like him. The sermon this week, God Calls the Dawn Out of the Dark, explores the Narrative Lectionary readings of Isaiah 9:1-7 and John 8:12
John Burt will be leading Sunday Forum this week with a discussion in preparation for Advent, “The Word Becomes Flesh: Considering the Images in John.”
Sunday School for all ages begins at 9:15. Everyone is invited to attend prior to our 10:30 worship service.
