God's People

Annual Picnic 2015

Thanks to everyone who made Sunday’s Annual Picnic a fun occasion. It took the good work of everyone to make the day a good one. This Sunday we will have our bi-monthly, “Y’all come” luncheon, informally hosted by Melanie Ramirez and Alan Plessinger. Any and all are welcome to attend; just let one of them know so we have enough seats. This time we will be at Dinah’s Poolside Restaurant in Palo Alto.

In worship we will focus on cultivating a “Spirit of Service.” This is a concept and practice that is crucial to our faith. One of the texts is the great hymn from Philippians to Christ’s self-emptying service. It is a challenge and example for every one of us who claims to be Christian. In Matthew’s gospel, the writer is pretty hard on those who don’t practice what they preach and in John’s gospel we find Jesus on his knees washing his disciples’ feet. The model that Jesus the Christ sets before to serve one another and all of God’s creation is surely the work of a life time. Can we live up to it and into it?

Join us at 10:00 AM for worship, followed by food, fellowship and fun. It will be a great day for you to invite others to share with us.

May we continue to grow together as God’s people.

Pastor Rick
