AUGUST Sunday Service – Praying Together.
All Ages Welcome – nursery and toddler care provided.
For the month of August only, we are moving our 9:30 Sunday morning service to Sunday evening, 6:30 PM-7: 30 PM. (August 6, August 13, August 20, August 27). We will return to our regular Sunday morning worship services on Sunday, September 3.
We believe a change from our normal Sunday morning routine will be good for us. It invites us to be more expectant and perhaps even more willing to seek God’s presence among us. As we experience a little disorientation, we can learn to trust God in our discomfort. This is always a little difficult. We recognize this.
The focus of our Sunday evenings will be prayer – a continuing theme from our community prayers on the 5th Sunday in April and the Lord’s Prayer series in July.
A few questions you may be asking, (I had these same questions):
- a) What about visitors that may come for service on Sunday morning? Elder Kristi Lonheim will greet people Sunday mornings and also facilitate an informal time of devotion, worship and prayer for any who may be here on Sunday morning. Thank you Kristi! (no Sunday school, no cookie heaven)
- b) What about giving? Yes, we will still collect offering on Sunday morning and evening.
Anne Tiernan, our finance elder announced two Sundays ago that we are operating in a deficit. Our congregational giving actually has been ahead of what we had projected, which is amazing. Thank you! We are, though, behind in our facilities’ rental projections. We would appreciate any “stretch” or extra giving you might consider. Please also remind each other to stay current in tithing and giving through the summer months. In the meantime, be assured that our elders are making all the necessary adjustments to lead and steward us through this time. If you have questions, feel free to contact Anne.
