Worship Themes for August 2015
Adam and Eve, Cain, Moses, Jacob and Elijah had something in common. God asked each of them questions. What if you and I paid more attention to the questions God asks us? With the help of Trevor Hudson’s book, Questions God Asks Us, that’s what we’ll do in August and on the first Sunday of September. On September 30 Larry Glick will present Elder John Kline (Civil War era farmer, preacher, teacher, healer—and martyr) and help us understand the ways we can support the Nigerian Brethren.
August 2 “Where Are You?” Genesis 3:9
