News and Announcements

Announcements are due in the church office by Thursday, 9am.

  **Today’s Message – In this section of the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus says, "...unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven."  What?  The Pharisees were pretty religious guys.  Or, were they?  The key is not what we do to gain righteousness, but what Christ has done.  Today, we will look at, "The Righteousness of Christ."

**Congregation Meeting- July 8 at 9:50.  Agenda includes 2018-2019 budget, election of council.
