Weekly Bulletin for Weekend of Sunday, December 19, 2021

Glory to Jesus Christ! Слава Ісусу Христу!

“It’s a paradox that God’s gifts are totally free and unearned, and yet God does not give them except to people who really want them, choose them, and say “yes” to them. ...Divine Loving is so pure that it never manipulates, shames, or forces itself on anyone. Love waits to be invited and desired, and only then rushes in.”

COVID-19 virus protocol guidelines are strictly adhered to during the visitation. 1. Stay home if you are not feeling well. Pray at home by watching our streaming service on Facebook. 2. Use hand sanitizer and register upon entering the church. 3. Adhere to physical distancing (6 feet) while sitting in pews. 4. Face masks are required.
