Seventh Sunday of Ordinal Time

Hey Everyone,

I hope you all are safe and warm on this cool Friday afternoon (at least here in Lake City). It’s been a sad week with the death of several folks connected to our community and congregation. For those who aren’t already aware, Ruthanne File died this past Wednesday in Grand Junction. Ruthanne was a long time member of our local community and she and her husband, Dan File, we’re central in the leadership of Camp Red Cloud for many years. Her funeral will take place at the Lake City School Gymnasium on Saturday, August 6th at 10:30am. The school is located at 614 N. Silver Street.

Additionally, there were two more deaths this week. The first is Jay Herring, Margo Presnall’s cousin. Please keep Margo and her family in your prayers. Next, Larry Waller passed a week ago. Please continue to pray for his wife, Donna and her family. 

Sunday, we continue on with our Summer Series–This is My Story, This is Our Song. This week we’ll explore It is Well, With My Soul. 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 below.

Tomorrow, Sunday, July 31st will be our fourth Trail Hiker Meal in the Annex from 6 to 8pm. St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church and St. James Episcopal Church are co-hosting this week and will be serving hams in the theme of “Ham Dinner.” We believe the Colorado Trail “bubble” is finally arriving so we’re expecting a lot of hikers at the meal. Please consider joining us tomorrow night and bringing a dish to share in that theme.
