Announcements – June 23, 2023

Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
As we have been announcing, it is this Sunday that we welcome Dr. Steve and Rita Williams to our Church. They serve as our PCA missionaries to New Zealand, and Steve will be giving us a report on their work during our worship service.
You will also have a wonderful opportunity to meet them before worship from 10:00 to 10:30 AM in the Narthex. Let me invite you to come to our ‘Coffee With Our Missionaries’ and greet Steve and Rita and learn more about how you can pray for and support them.
Our sermon this Lord’s Day will be taken from Matthew 8:26 where we encounter another one of our Savior’s unusual questions.  The familiar setting for the question is found in verses 23-27. It is on the stormy Sea of Galilee that Jesus asked the disciples, “Why are you afraid?
I love you all and look forward eagerly to Sunday!
