Service Summary:

Today in our sermon on Proverbs, we focus on Proverbs 9, which compares Lady Wisdom and Lady Folly. We look at their efforts to host people through their houses and their banquets, and Pastor Ashley helps us look at the choices we make to participate in one or the other.  The Sacrament of Communion, which we take part in today, is an example of one of the choices we can make.
