SEVENTEENTH Sunday after Pentecost

September 15, 2013, 11am 



“Parables of the Lost Sheep/Lost Coin”  

“So he told them this parable: "Which one of you, having a hundred sheep and losing one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one that is lost until he finds it? When he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders and rejoices. Luke 15:3-5

Or what woman having ten silver coins, if she loses one of them, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it? –Luke 15:8
