THIS WEEK AT SYLVAN ABBEY: Week 2 of Psalms and we will look at Psalm 77-Then I thought...We will look at times we feel concern, cast down, depressed and where we are to go in those times and we have an example of this situation in Psalm 77. Come and listen and reflect on times you have felt a distance between you and God and what did you do next? We will explore our opportunities and see what the Psalmist says about this experience. Come and join us for the message: Then I Thought... We will worship at 11:00 am on Sunday and bring a friend or person looking to see, meet, and feel God loving presence. Sunday School for Youth and Adults on Sunday morning at 9:30 am for Adults and 10:00 am for youth. This Sunday we will celebrate again with the addition of new people joining our family. It is exciting to see what God has been doing for us at Sylvan Abbey. We are adding to our numbers each month and we are thanking God for His work in our family. We are continuing to ask Him to bring us more people to love and share the light of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit! God is Good...All the Time! All the Time...God is Good!
