I hope everyone is well and rested from all the festivities of this past weekend. What a blessing it was to gather with folks from all over the country and celebrate the incredible freedom we have in the United States. It feels like the summer season has finally arrived, and with it some exciting places for ministry and service.
This Sunday, July 10th, we’re kicking off the Lake City Trail Hiker Meal. This week our faith community will be hosting the hiker dinner. At this very moment I’m slow roasting over 30 pounds of marinated pork for the succulent Vietnamese sandwich know as a Bánh mì. If you’ve never had one, you don’t want to miss it. Details for the hiker meal can be found below in the Announcements.
This Sunday we’re also moving the Sunday morning Worship service outside! The service will still be at 10:00am, but we’ll be in the church yard. We’ve got lots of chairs, but if you prefer to bring your own, please do so. We’re planning on being outside during the months of July and August. If there is ever a Sunday where rain is threatening, please check our website for last minute updates. Should it be raining, however, we will meet in the CPC sanctuary and use Darley Hall as an overflow. Finally, I’m thrilled to share that his year we’ll be using a microphone and speaker for the service, which should help with the traffic noise.
If you’re joining us Sunday morning via Zoom, please know that there will be no interaction between the Zoom participants and Jason during our outside broadcasts. You will be automatically let in once the service begins.
This Sunday we continue on with our Summer Series–This is My Story, This is Our Song. This week we’ll be delving into one of the great hymns of all times: Amazing Grace. If you’d like to read the lectionary texts before the service, they can be found at the bottom of the online Order of Worship bulletin.
