Memorial Messenger
30 September 2016
Join us as we celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Pastor Murray here at MLCS.
BBQ and good fellowship are on the menu for 16 October after late service in the Fellowship Hall and Commons.
Our improved organ will also be rededicated following the BBQ at 2:00 PM. Join us in the Sanctuary for a short service and music that showcases our organ's new sounds.
From the Vicar
Live With Him
In this week's Epistle lesson, Paul offers some comforting words to Timothy and to us. He speaks of "sharing in suffering as a good soldier in Christ Jesus." This sounds kind of rough, as it indicates that we, as Christians will still suffer on this earth. This is certainly the truth. However, there is also another aspect to this. We also share in the suffering of Christ, the very same suffering which gives us life. We share in the benefits of Christ's death and resurrection. As Paul says, "If we have died with him, we will also live with him."
