Worship Bulletin – 3/7/21

McPherson First Church of the Brethren
Welcome to Worship at the McPherson Church of the Brethren
We invite your active participation in the life of this congregation, as together we continue to grow in grace and seek justice for God’s creation.

Sunday, March 7, 2021
From Ash Wednesday through the day before Easter; not including Sundays;
Lent is a season of reflection and contemplation in preparation for the Easter Celebration of New Life.
