God’s Family Worships
Second Sunday in Lent
March 13, 2022                                                                               
10:00 A.M.
As flowers turn to the sun, as rivers run down to the sea, as trees reach upward to the sky, so we lift up our souls toward God.

Let us lift up our hearts and voices as we worship together. Amen.
