This will be just a quick note. It is a day late, because of the holiday. I hope you had a good 4th enjoying and celebrating the freedoms we have in our nation.
It will be a good Sunday coming up. A hand bell quartet will be providing our special music. I am preaching on Luke 10:1-11, 16-20. My sermon title is “It’s Coming Near.” We will also be celebrating the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper.
The adult Coffee Chats group continues to meet throughout the summer. Again this week they will be discussing my sermon. I usually provide them with discussion questions to get the conversation started, but most of the time they have no problem with things to talk about.
However, next Sunday, July 14th, we have something special planned. Following the morning worship service, there will be an adult forum in the chapel entitled “Sing the Faith.” It will be presented by Laura Behrens, an elder at First Presbyterian Church in Cedar Rapids. Laura will focus on some favorite hymns from our Presbyterian Hymnal. So mark your calendar, and plan on attending.
As I mentioned last week, I will continue to have some of my artwork for sale in my office. Stop by and see if there is anything that might interest you. A portion of the proceeds will go to help reduce the church’s budget deficit.
Stay in One Peace,
