This Trinity Sunday, Pastor Merrill preached about how we praise the Father, pray in the name of the Son, and are inspired by the Holy Spirit to step out in faith to make progress toward our future, a future in which God has plans for us (Jeremiah 29:11).
The last part of our worship service included a decommissioning ceremony for the 92 year old St. John School Building, which will be taken down soon as we begin raising funds to build a new handicap-accessible Fellowship Hall South of the church and remodel the church basement to accommodate classrooms for Sunday School and Confirmation.
Then we all sat down for an old fashioned picnic outside on a bright, beautiful day. Members and former members laughed and told stories about the old days in the old building.
