Agape Worship Service, Nov. 18

On the Sunday before Thanksgiving, it is the tradition of this congregation to mark the holiday with an Agape Feast. Agape is the Greek word for “love” especially used to refer to Christ’s love toward his disciples. This is the selfgiving love that Jesus commanded his followers to practice: “Love one another as I have loved you.” On the 18th, you are invited to bring food to share–bread, grains, fruit, cheese, finger-foods–and deliver them to the
kitchen prior to the worship service on Sunday morning. During the last 15 minutes of our worship, we will leave the sanctuary and go into Fellowship Hall to share food and conversation, and give thanks to God for God’s love, bounty, and blessings.
