Traditional Worship: 10:00 A.M.

Seventh Sunday after Pentecost

Our Mission:

“To grow disciples of Jesus Christ and equip them for ministry in the world.”





  We are sent into the world to be witnesses of God’s love and power.

What shall we take with us that all might know Who sent us?

The witness of God’s love and mercy and grace in our lives.

Will that be enough as others offer the things of the world?

There is no greater message than that of the God’s love that made us whole.

All: Blessed be the name of the Lord! 


*HYMN OF PRAISE #101 (blue hymnal)

“From All That Dwell Below The Skies”

LITANY: “Let us Praise the Lord in the House of the Lord”

Let us praise the Lord in the house of the Lord!

Let us praise the house of the Lord for its faithful witness.

Let us celebrate its power to convict sinners of their guilt,

Moving them to confess the errors of their way.

Let us celebrate its power to convince prophets of the truth,

Empowering them to declare the word of the Lord.

Let us celebrate its power to alert stewards to their mission,

Equipping them to discern the humanity of the deprived.

Let us celebrate its power to turn disciples to their task,

Prompting them to join the ministry of healing.

Let us celebrate its power to recruit champions of the wronged,

Inspiring them to take up the cause of justice.

All: Let us praise the Lord in the house of the Lord! May our witness be

faithful and our service, glad!

- VBS - Mt Everest It's only four weeks away and lots of plans are underway. The 2015 VBS program will be held August 2nd – 6th. A meal will be served for all children, their family and all volunteers, starting at 5:30pm each night. Committees will once again be in charge of different duties. Please check with your committee to see which duty has been assigned to them. Each night the program will run from 6:00-8:00pm. Please invite your family friends and neighbors to bring their children. The more kids we have the more fun it will be. I will once again be looking for volunteers to help with the preparing and setting up the props. I will have a board with needed food and supplies down in Wesley Hall and will be looking for volunteers to provide those items. Feel free to sign your name by each item you are willing to donate. We will be needing lots of mountain climbing gear and some tents and ropes and such for decorations. If you are bringing these props, please clearly mark them with your name.

Please contact me if you have any questions at all. Thank you in advance for all that you do to help this become a success. God Bless.
