Sermon

24 Pentecost—Proper 28-A-2

Zephaniah 1:7,12-18, Psalm 90:1-8, (9-11), 12, 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11, Matthew 25:14-30

150th year celebration mosaics!

3 new 2017 mosaics are now hanging in the parish hall in celebration of All Saints’ 150th anniversary. Each of them consists of over 5000 individual images that were taken from all sorts of parish life events including services, parties, marriages, and fellowship events throughout the years.

I’m fairly certain that each of you can find yourself somewhere in them!  OK maybe you won’t be able to find yourself, b ut it’s very likely that YOU ARE THERE!

Enjoy!
