I hope you are all well and keeping warm. It’s really cold here in Lake City and we even had some sleet this morning. Nothing says it’s almost summer like a good pelting with tiny snowballs from God. 😉
Despite the cooler weather, however, we’ll still be meeting tomorrow morning at 9:00am in Darley for our CPC Work Day. Bring your rakes and work gloves and join us for a couple of hours as we tidy up the property.
Yesterday, Thursday, June 1, our Trail Hiker Center officially opened. With the considerable amount of snow still on the mountains, however, we’re not anticipating seeing our first Continental Divide hikers for a couple weeks. Although our hiker meals won’t start until July 9, 2023, there are plenty of ways you can get involved and support this incredible ministry. Sign up Sunday in Darley Hall to serve in the Trail Hiker Center this summer.
This Sunday, June 4 is Trinity Sunday, when we look at the unique nature of our God–three persons in one. To that end, I’ll be making a connection between the creation story found in Genesis 1 and the Great Commission calling found in Matthew 28. You can find all those texts in the online order of worship below.
This Sunday, we’ll also be celebrating the Eucharist, so if you’re joining us online, please remember to bring your own communion elements to the online broadcast. Additionally, please note that there will be NO POTLUCK this Sunday or any Sunday until October. If you’d like to get involved with more fellowship opportunities, please see Linda Downs.
I also wanted to give you some information about Laurel Justice’s son, Calder, who recently was diagnosed with a brain tumor. If you’d like to follow his journey as we hold him in prayer, you can find more information on his CaringBridge page. And, if you’d like to support Laurel as she cares for Calder over the next few months, here’s a link to her Gofundme page.
Finally, last week we had a wonderful reception and fellowship time after the Sunday morning worship service to celebrate the LEGO creations made by the Intergenerational Study of the Bible for Youth class. There are a few photos at the bottom of this post highlighting the event.
Here are your announcements for the week:
