Today we commissioned our Zekenim-Elders (Larry Larsen & Carl Wolsleben) and our Shamashim-deacons (Russ Crider, Tom Westendorf and Aaron Rich).  They and their wives were prayed over and released into service.  Our worship Leader Lynne McDowell was also anointed with oil and commissioned to service.
  
Congregation Leader Stewart Lieberman continued with his message on the Centrality of Messiah's work on the Cross.  We explored the amazing Grace of not just being saved from our sins but being saved from ourselves!  What an incredible exchange that took place...our lives for His!  We learned that salvation was not the only gift we received through the Lord's crucifixion...we also obtained His Life-Life more abudant!
Our Shabbat Fellowship ended with a delicious Oneg!
