Park Avenue Wednesday Supper

This Wednesday the menu is: Pancakes, Sausage, Bacon, Fruit & Dessert.  



Good morning and a warm welcome to all our church family and our guests. We ask everyone to complete our communication card so we can have a record of your attendance.  That can be accessed through the church app or by scanning the QR code below.  

Hey moms! Don’t miss out on the Mother’s Day Coffee Bar provided for you in the atrium. We also have some pastries for everyone and even some “regular” coffee for dads and anyone else here to honor our moms. Coffee will be served from 9:00 am to 9:50 am. Moms, we appreciate you all so much. Thanks for all you do! We also have our photo booth set up in the atrium.  Stop by anytime before or after worship.  

Next  week we will honor our High School seniors with a special worship service and a banquet to follow.  Congratulations to them and their families.  

Today in the sermon time we will continue our journey through Exodus. We are still at Mount Sinai as God continues to hand down the laws by which he expects his people to live by.  Although the Ten Commandments are the centerpiece of the law, there are many more instructions relating to specific aspects of the life of his chosen people. The essence of the laws concern how the people are to live in a peaceful community with one another and how they are to distinguish themselves from the nations that are currently in the promised land that the Israelites will eventually possess. Due to the specific circumstances of these people in that particular place, many of these laws seem foreign and somewhat strange to us. Bottom line for us may be to recognize that God calls his people, then and now, to love one another through considerate lives and to separate ourselves from the ungodly.
