9 Things you Simply Must Do… Act Like an Ant Rev. Robb Almy Proverbs 6:6-8
“6 Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! 7 It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, 8 yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. “
Welcome to Fredericksburg United Methodist Church. We are glad you are here. Please let us know that you were here by filling out the perforated edge of this worship program and place it in the offering basket.
We continue our Sermon Series this week, 9 Things You Simply Must Do. Reverend Robb Almy will preach this week, telling us to Act Like an Ant… Today is the Great Train Race downtown. Since so many of our children and youth participate there is no Sunday School, other than for Adults. Come cheer them on at the corner of Charlotte and Caroline after the Service.
