First Sunday of Lent
We hope you will join us for worship each week. Here is some information that you might like to have about this week’s worship service.
Scripture: Matthew 18:15-35 (p. 897-8, Pew Bible)
Focus Scripture – Then Peter came and said to him, “Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times.” (Matthew 18:21-22)
Theme: Forgiveness means accepting the imbalance of justice and moving on with your own life.

Prayer of the Day: God, you have forgiven us a world of transgressions. Make us likewise gracious to those who are in debt to us, showing them the mercy which you offer to all. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
