Ninth Sunday of Ordinal Time

Hey Everyone,

I hope you are all well and have basked in the glory of God’s creation this past week. This Sunday we’ll explore one of the oldest and most popular hymns of all times–Be Thou My Vision. If you’d like to read the lectionary texts before Sunday, you can find them at the bottom of the online Order of Worship, which can be downloaded below. .

Join us this Sunday night for the Trail Hiker Dinner from 6-8pm at the Lake City Trail Hiker Center located in the Presbyterian Annex (418 Silver Street). This Sunday, August 14th, First Baptist Church is hosting and they are serving Turkey Tetrazzini. So this week’s theme is going to be “Casserole Surprise!” We’re inviting all of you to bring their favorite potluck casseroles. With folks in town from all over the country, who knows what people will bring. Be creative, try a new recipe, bring a state or regional dish. And don’t forget to check out the fountain this week, it’s going to be a good one. 😉

And, don’t forget that our very own Jim Walker will be performing his one man show Mark Twain tomorrow night, Saturday, August 13th at 7:30 at the Lake City Arts Center. It’s a fantastic show. Please consider showing your support for Jim and the Art Center.
