Traditionally the Sunday after Easter Sunday has been known in this congregation as Laity Sunday. Each year a member of the congregation is asked to give a testimony in worship as to how God’s goodness and love has been present in his/ her life and the lives of his/ her family.
This year Elizabeth (Lizzie) Powers will be the speaker for Laity Sunday. Lizzie is married to Heston Powers, Jr., and they have three children: Elizabeth, John Heston III, and Annie. She is active in our congregation serving as a Deacon. She completed the Bethel intensive class as well, and has led several small groups for women as a part of our S.A.L.T. program. She also is involved in women’s prison ministry.
Lizzie’s text will be on II Corinthians 4:1- 17, and will focus on “treasure in clay jars.”
In addition to the message that day, several of our youth will sing a special song in worship that morning, “BrokenVessels”.
