More love…

We will of course be celebrating the Ravens in worship this week (wear purple to church)! As part of our celebration, we’ll be be collecting cans of soup and monetary donations to help support Mason Dixon Community Services in their fight against hunger in our community. We will pray: “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.”

In worship, we will be celebrating communion and talking about love in the conclusion of our series on 1 Corinthians 13. All are welcome!
