It is good to be back! I will begin visitations again next week, using the rest of this week to catch up in preparation for Sunday. The full recap will begin next week.

A special thank you to the Gideons and John Wright for filling the pulpit while I was away.

Upcoming Service

This Sunday Pastor Ryan will begin a new series called “Vision,” with the sermon titled, “Vision Through God’s Eyes,” based on 2 Kings 6:8-23 and Proverbs 29:18. God views the world differently than we as humans do. What happens when we see things through God’s eyes? Come or tune in Sunday to find out!

Call for Worship Leaders and Children’s Story

As we look at the ability to reopen in the coming weeks, we are in need of both worship leaders and children’s story. We are looking for one person each week, rather than a month at a time. If you would like to serve, contact Alice Over (worship leading) or Tammy Stine (children’s story).

Summer Vespers

In place of our Lenten Vespers, we will have summer outdoor vespers on our church grounds three Sunday evenings during the summer: July 11, August 8, and September 5 at 6:30 pm. Come enjoy some fellowship, campfire songs, and our wonderful church family outdoors! More details will be coming in future editions.

Call to Prayer

Let us continue to pray for our nation in the following ways:

1) National return to God

2) Repentance of personal sin

3) Repentance of corporate sin

4) Healing for the brokenness of relationships

5) Our leaders

6) Restoration of the national church

7) Revival
