ON JULY 4TH WE CELEBRATE INDEPENDENCE DAY in our country. As we pause to give thanks for the blessings of the life we live in this nation, let us never forget all those who toiled and sacrificed to make it possible. Let us never forget that there are places all over the world where freedom, independence and hope are in short supply. Let us never forget that, even here, there are people who are not truly free - from oppression, violence, injustice, poverty, inequality. And let us never forget that true freedom can only be found in the hope of the cross, and the promises made to us in our baptism.
WE OFFER TWO WORSHIP SERVICES on Sundays, a 9:00 a.m. contemporary service and an 11:00 a.m. traditional service.
THE CHANCEL FLOWERS FOR JULY 10TH are given by John (Buddy) and Jean Jacobs in honor of birthdays and their wedding anniversary.
PLEASE JOIN US IN THE FELLOWSHIP HALL in between the worship services for refreshments and fellowship. If you would like to host refreshments on a Sunday, the signup sheet is next to the coffee urn. If we have no host, the Fellowship Committee provides coffee. Our host(s) for this week: The Fellowship Committee.
FELLOWSHIP COMMITTEE MEETING IS THIS SUNDAY, July 10th, in between services, for anyone interested in helping to plan fellowship events such as the 737 party, movie night, game night, Chili Cook-Off, just to name a few. If questions, please contact Mary Grant at (609) 602-0155 or email@example.com.
