Carol Coleman, and her grandson Paul Button, lit the Christ Candle and Carol visited the birthday box. The friendly greeters this past Sunday were Jack and Elizabeth Redshaw, and the Minute for Mission entry was read by Tara Bailey-Taylor. Minister Stephanie's sermon was about God's love for all people. God loves everyone and so should we; regardless of any differences. When we sense a problem with another person, we should ask ourselves what Jesus would do in that situation. God calls on each of us to love all people, and that love should come from the heart. The anthem the choir sang was called "God so loved the World" by Steiner.
