Pastor Swoyer’s sermon Sunday is ’Stumbling Blocks & Broken Hearts’


MARLBORO -- The Sunday, Aug. 31, program at the Marlboro Meeting House will begin with Bible study at 9 a.m. The group will pick up where they left off with Genesis Chapter 35 and more of Jacob’s story.

The service will begin at 10 a.m. Pastor Amanda C. Swoyer’s sermon title is "Stumbling Blocks and Broken Hearts." Do you remember a time when you got some bad news that was so painful that you thought your heart would break? Do you remember your first thought or comment when you heard that news? All are welcome to join us on Sunday as we talk about stumbling blocks and broken hearts.

Scripture readings are from Jeremiah 15:15-21 and Matthew 16:21-28. Fred Gray will be organist. Special music will feature Ellen Dudley singing Sam Cooke’s "A Change Is Gonna Come" with Fred Gray accompanying on guitar.

Refreshments will be available after the service. A stair chair is available for a lift to and from the sanctuary.

Next Sunday, Sept. 7 will be the final service of the summer. The annual Hymn Sing is Sunday, Oct. 19 at 4 p.m. followed by homemade soups and pie. The Thanksgiving service is Sunday, Nov. 16, at 4 p.m. and we bring non-perishable food items to share with the Deerfield Valley Food Pantry.
