Need a sermon for Sunday, May 29?
Since so many pastors will be attending the Special Session of the Delegate Assembly, Mennonite Church USA is excited to share with congregations an option for their May 29 Sunday morning service!
Samuel Sarpiya, keynote speaker for the Delegate Assembly, has agreed to pre-record a version of his message for congregational use. This will give everyone across the denomination the opportunity to hear the same message! Sarpiya’s message is titled “The Way of Peace in our Polarized World” and will be based on Hebrews 12:14 and Romans 12:1-2. The 30-minute video will be available for download on May 19 from MC USA’s YouTube channel. Learn more about Sarpiya and the other worship speakers here.
