Weekly Update 8/21

This Sunday: If you listen to National Public Radio, you have heard the ads for Babbel, a language learning system.  The Bible has a story about language and power in Genesis 11:1-9, the story of the Tower of Babel.  That story will be the focus for the service Sunday.

All you need to do is show up, and you will be welcomed!

Singing in the Sunshine: The long stretch of rainy days has ended, but the singin’ goes on!
