Words of Welcome

We continue our journey through the season of Easter, noticing where Christ is alive and showing up in our lives today.  This Sunday we hear the story of the risen Jesus inviting the disciples who had gone fishing to share in some breakfast.   We will be blessed to have Sandra Okiror from Whams Cafe among us.  Sandra will be our scripture reader and will also share with us what it is to nourish those who come to her table.  Whams Cafe received a loan through the UCW microloan program we call 1K church.  The loan enabled Sandra to make renovations to her kitchen to enable her to serve more people more efficiently.  We are blessed to have Sandra as a partner and to learn from her. 

Additionally, we will share in the meal Jesus offers by celebrating communion.  Please come to worship with some water/juice and cracker/bread.  In this Eastertide we celebrate the presence of the Christ that fills the spaces between us and and holds us together as one.

 A google doc of the bulletin is available here
