Variations

Blessings to you all, The weekend is about to begin – summer weather is kicking in and there is no better place to be than at church on Sunday. We will focus on Psalm 96 – and maybe a bit on Luke 7:1-10. The sermon title is: Theme Variations. Psalm 96 begins with: “O sing to the Lord and new song; sing to the Lord all the earth.” We will experientially work on this theme together. This evening we will be hosting the Table of Grace community supper from 5:30-6:30. If you are around and want a great meal – drop by – for meatloaf and potatoes and veggies and dessert. Please pray for the travelers this weekend. Enjoy the weekend and take a moment or two to remember those who gave their

Creating Delight

Blessings to you all, This Sunday the focus text will be from Proverbs (believe it or not) 8:1-4, 22-31. The Gospel reading is from John 16:12-15. The sermon is entitled: “Creating Delight.” An interesting question might be: Is “delight” something that is created or something that is creative? In preparation for Sunday’s time together would you please take a bit of time and consider a “gift or talent or interest” that you have – something that gives you life? I expect Sunday will be an interesting day and I am looking forward to sharing some of it with you. In Christ, Gary

Seeing Red

Blessings and Peace to you all, This Sunday is PENTECOST Sunday – think wind and fire – no rain – but wind and fire. The scripture passage will be Acts 2:1-21 with a bit of help from John 14:15-17. The sermon title is: “The Ins and Outs of Pentecost.” If you would like to wear something RED – that might be fun. Pentecost was a Jewish festival celebrating the spring harvest (50 days after Passover). Christians adopted – adapted the festival to be celebrated 50 days after Easter – right after the Ascension. It is considered the birthday of the church. I look forward to sharing time with you on Sunday. In Faith, Gary

An Interesting Story

Blessings All, This Sunday is Mothers’ Day and we will be offering an opportunity to musically pay tribute to mothers. Instead of a selected hymn for our middle hymn – people can name a hymn that their mom liked or that represents their mom and we will sing the first verse of that hymn. If your mom is still around and you would like to phone her and have her listen to our congregation sing for her – that might be a nice idea. The scripture story from Acts (16:16-34) will be our focus. The sermon is entitled: “The Unshackled Gospel.” It might be safer for the gospel to be shackled. Maybe we even contribute to the shackling? Just a thought. We will be receiving our Blanket Sunday offe
