Dave read from the Seder booklet. As the 10 plagues were recounted, the frogs and hail stones flew through the air, cows were tipped and locusts and beetles crawled on the tables.

Our last Market Day Treasures was held April 12th. Our charity was Military Moms Prayer Group. We collected cash cards and items for them to send to the soldiers and the proceeds from the gift basket raffle, which was won by our long time member Irene Traficante, will help them with postage costs.

We will be back in October with a big event which will include the Pet Blessing, children’s activities, food, vendors and some new exciting surprises. See you then!!

Unexpected Reality

Posted August 31st, 2014

[ video link to sermon ] Peter had just confessed to Jesus that He was the Messiah. Right after that Jesus tells him and the disciples what was going to happen.
