THE Y-LIFE MISSION TRIP is coming up soon. From July 16-23
the group will be traveling to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. They are still in
need of about $1000.00 to pay for their expenses. If you are inclined
to give toward their trip, you can do so by designating it on your
offering envelope, or use a pew envelope. Thank you so much!
THIS SUMMER we would like to incorporate a psalm each week in
worship. This will be done through a variety of ways - traditional
hymn, new (contemporary) arrangement of the hymn, or
responsorial setting of the hymn. The rendering of this psalm will be
done creatively through use of the choir, praise team, and/or soloists.
We would like to request that you provide us with your favorite psalm
as a starting point. If you feel comfortable, we would invite you to
share during worship why this psalm has impacted your spiritual
journey. Otherwise we could put a write up in the bulletin or share
that you selected this particular psalm. It would be wonderful to
have your presence in worship the day the psalm is utilized in
worship, so please give us your name, psalm and dates that you are
available. You can jot it down and place in collection plate, or leave
on the desk in the office.
