Weekly Scripture Meditation:
We are inviting the Church as a whole to participate in reading and meditating on the lectionary texts for the upcoming Sunday. The texts for Sunday, August 11 are as follows:
Luke 12:32-40; Psalm 33:12-22; Genesis 15:1-6; Hebrews 11:1-3, 8-16.
Summer Prayer Events
Our last prayer event will be on August 28. We will meet at 7:00 p.m. for about an hour and have times of singing, guided prayer, congregational reading and response and prayers of the people. Please mark your calendar or electronic device. We’ll see you in August.
Mission Outreach [8.24.19]
We have an opportunity to serve God through helping Westminster Presbyterian Church in their Hunger Outreach. This event is scheduled for Saturday, August 24 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. They will need some 40-50 volunteers to carry out this project. This is a first for them and a first for us. This outreach serves a growing need within the community. At this point they are asking us to show up and fit in where we can. The possible duties consist of: hospitality crew, registration crew, wagoneer crew, food distribution crew, clean up crew, and standby crew. Their next distribution will be in February.
Christian education is returning soon. Our first classes will begin on Sunday, September 8. Classes will be held on Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. Why not make a commitment to going deeper in your walk with Jesus by attending this year?
August Movie Night
One of the clips that was shown during our “Year of the Clip” was submitted by Emily Ott. Later, she asked me if we could screen her movie one Friday and I agreed to do it. On Friday, August 9 at 6:00 p.m. we will show “Bajrangi Bhaijaan.” This subtitled movie is about an Indian man with a magnanimous heart who takes a young, mute Pakistani girl back to her homeland to reunite her with her family. [Could this be an Indian interpretation of the Good Samaritan?] Running time is long at 2 hours and 43 minutes. Water and popcorn are always free.
