Bodies

Come join us Sunday for a continuation of our mini-series on 1 Corinthians 12:26-31.

Pastor Shannon will be talking about this in her sermon!

We’ll be discussing Paul’s call to compassion with his metaphor of the body and reminder that when one of us suffers we all suffer. Sometimes we forget about that part of the metaphor, but it is so important as we discern where God is calling us now!

CHURCH HAPPENINGS

*Superbowl Sunday is February 3! We’re going to celebrate with a SOUPer Bowl of Caring! Bring in 1 CAN OF SOUP (make sure it isn’t expired) and $1 (my mom is asking her church to bring in 5 cans of soup and $5 since the Ravens are in the Superbowl— you can do the same!). This was an idea started by a youth group in 1990 based on a prayer they heard in church: “Lord, even as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those who are without a bowl of soup to eat.” Churches across the nation will be collecting food and donations for local hunger-relief charities.
