September 16: It’s Rally Sunday! Everyone will meet in the sanctuary to hear guest pastor Rolf Jacobson and Pastor Peter introduce Prince of Peace to the Narrative lectionary series, why we will use it, and how it will shape our life together for the coming year. Younger students, parents and teachers will then go to the gym to be introduced to our new Sunday School format, while interested older adults will be able to hear more from Rolf on the development of the lectionary.
September 23: We hear of Joseph in prison, and Jesus commends those who visit prisoners.
