Focus Statement: “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.” Psalm 32:8
Scripture passages: 2 Kings 5:1-15 & Mark 1:40-45
Children’s time: The children began by playing a game of Simon Says. The game catches you up because you think it’s easy and stop paying attention. Sometimes we also find things hard to believe when they seem too easy. Important to remember that simple does not always equal easy.
Sermon slides/info: Sometimes it really is that simple
Songs we sang:
Come, now is the time to worship STJ9
Blessed be your name
Spirit of the living God HWB349
I will come to you in silence STS49
O breathe on me, breath of God STJ45
I will stand in the congregation STS113
And, a few announcements…
