Sunday, November 12
  9:00 Contemporary Worship
10:45 Traditional Worship
Scripture: Matthew 25:1-13
Sermon: There Will Always Be Another Parable…
Surprise! We’ll be playing with parables one more Sunday. This one is appointed to be read in churches all over the world this Sunday: the story of the wise and foolish bridesmaids. Why not read it ahead of time and play with it a bit?
 
This is Veterans Day Sunday when we honor all who have served in the armed forces of our nation, past and present, and we pray for those who are now serving and their families, grateful for their commitment and sacrifice, including those who are part of our CPC church family.
