From the Pastor
Grace and peace in the name of God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
We baptized Benjamin Paul Perry at the 11:00 service Sunday morning. It is wonderful to witness God’s proclamation of love and acceptance by the baptismal waters. We are all children of God, although some don’t know it. Those who have been baptized know they are children of God. The awareness of God’s loving, nurturing, providential care surrounds them all the days of their lives.
Vacation Bible School was a great success. The children all had a wonderful time as they learned of God’s power to provide, to comfort, to heal, to forgive and to love us forever.
On this 4th of July weekend, my sermon will be entitled, A Christian Nation, and the text will be Galatians 3:19-28.
Love in Christ,
Rules for Living
Many of you went to the sanctuary to pray for the Church last Monday. Thank you.
But that was just the beginning. We all need to keep praying. We need to pray for our congregation and we need to pray for the churches in America, that we can be united in purpose, as we challenge Americans to love their neighbors and to take care of one another, as Christ taught us to do, both by his words and his example.
Christians don’t agree on everything. We never have, and we never will. But we are united in our love for Christ and our commitment to join Christ in sharing the grace and love of God with all .
Let us pray that we can focus on what unites us, rather than what divides us. Our nation needs a united Church. Keep praying.
