Hello there,

WE WANT YOU TO GET OUT AND VOTE!! Well, yes, of course in THAT election, but also in another election we are having over the next two Sundays at FPC Marion.  What are your favorite Old Testament Bible stories?  Noah and the Ark?  David and Goliath?  Daniel and the Lions’ Den? We want you to vote for your top five.  Pastor Beth and I will take the top ten and preach on one each week during September, October and November.  So be thinking about it.  Ballots will be available in the bulletin on Sunday, or if you would like an “absentee” ballot, let the church office know.

This Sunday our Praise Team from our Synergy service will be leading in worship under the direction of Sam Raiche. So the service will be a blended one with some traditional music and some more contemporary.  I will be preaching on Luke 14:1,7-14 and my sermon title is “Please Wait to be Seated.”

Following worship you are invited to an all church picnic at Hanna Park. We will eat at approximately 11:15.  Hot meat sandwiches and beverages will be provided.  Please bring a dish to share, your own table service and lawn chairs.  It will be a good chance to enjoy some delicious food, to visit with old friends and to make some new ones.  I hope you will join us.

Stay in One Peace,
