Members of Zion United Church of Christ in Hoyleton continue the journey through the season after Pentecost with a sermon title this next Sunday “From The Least Likely Places.” With the guidance and direction of Scripture readings from 1 Samuel 15:34-16:13 and Mark 4:26-34, listeners will have an opportunity to consider the seemingly unlikely paces, events, and people through whom and through which God chooses to work – even us. Worship begins at 10 a.m. All are welcome to attend.
