First Sunday of Ordinary Time

Hey CPC,

I hope all is well in your lives. As the summer unfolds it’s exciting to see so many of you returning to Lake City. There’s lots going on in town, and we’re no exception at the church. So please check out the details below about what’s coming up.

Also, don’t forget that Wayne Jones’s memorial service will take place this coming Saturday, June 18th at 1:30pm in the CPC sanctuary. In addition to the live service, we’ll also be broadcasting the service via this Zoom link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/88489308747. All are invited to join the family for a reception after the service at the Jones’s home here in Lake City. If you’d like to make a donation in memory of Wayne Jones, the family has requested that you donate to Community Presbyterian Church (choose the memorial designation) or the American Lung Association.

This Sunday we’ll begin our new summer preaching series: This is My Story, This is Our Song. We’ll start the series with Blessed Assurance and throughout the summer I’ll be teaching about the history and theology of the hymns you voted on. Although I’ll be referencing various passages in the Bible during the series, we’ll continue reading through the lectionary texts as usual. You can find them here or at the bottom of the online Order of Worship, which can be found below.

For those curious as to which hymns are next, here’s the line up for the rest of the summer:

June 26–A Mighty Fortress
July 3–Battle Hymn of the Republic (Summer Community Service)
July 10–Amazing Grace
July 17–For the Beauty of the Earth
July 24–What A Friend We have in Jesus
July 31–It is Well with my Soul
August 7–How Great Thou Art
August 14–Be Thou My Vision
August 21–Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus
August 28–Great is Thy Faithfulness

Finally, this Sunday is not only Father’s Day, but it’s also our monthly potluck. In honor of the fathers, I’m breaking out our 14-pound cured Spanish ham. If you’d like to theme your potluck offering, think “Spanish tapas” or finger food type hors d’oeuvres. Or bring whatever you’d like… it’s all good. 🙂

Pentecost Sunday

Hey Everyone!

I can’t believe it’s June already. The weather is getting warm and it feels like I’m seeing new people everyday. This week we opened up our hiker center and have already seen a handful of hikers find refuge in our Annex. What a blessing it is to be able to offer hospitality to them and I can’t wait to see many of you get involved in this ministry this summer.

And, if the opening of the hiker center wasn’t enough, this Sunday is Pentecost Sunday–when we celebrate the advent of the Holy Spirit dwelling within us. Sunday I’ll be preaching on the familiar Acts 2:1-21 text. You can find it and the rest of the lectionary texts here.

Don’t forget that tomorrow morning, Saturday, June 4th is our second all church work day. Tomorrow will be largely tidying up the property, some light weeding, raking up leaves, and cleaning out a couple of closets. Please consider bringing some work gloves and brooms and/or rakes with you. Join us from 9am until 12pm as we make our grounds even more beautiful.

Just a reminder… although we traditionally have communion on the first Sunday of the month, we’re pushing it a few weeks to celebrate on June 19th during our summer kick-off.
