Sermon by Daniel Glaze
“Sometimes I Think We are the Answer”
Is the Lord among us or not? (Exodus 17:7). It’s a haunting question. Sometimes I think we are the answer to that question. We answer that question by how we live our lives. Perhaps we show this world that the Lord is among us by how we bear the presence and love of Christ in a hurting and lonely world.

Scripture Texts
Exodus 17:1-7
Matthew 21:23-32

World Communion Sunday is observed the first Sunday in October. In a time when fear and violence divide the people of God’s earth, World Communion Sunday reminds us of our unity through Christ. Christians in congregations around the world are participating in communion today, and River Road Church, Baptist joins our brothers and sisters in all nations as we gather around the communion table with Christ.

Following worship there will be a reception in the Fellowship Hall hosted by the deacons. Everyone is invited to attend.
