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: 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. 🙂

Here are your announcements for the coming week:
