Sunday, September 12 
  9:00 a.m. Contemporary Worship
10:45 a.m. Traditional Worship
Scripture  Matthew 5:1-3
Sermon  Blessed are the Poor in Spirit
We begin our fall sermon series on the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:1-10), in which Jesus names the unexpected grace that arises in severe and challenging circumstances, beginning with blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. These words speak to the soul on any Sunday, and especially this one. 
A remembrance of September 11 twenty years later will conclude the service.
