First Sunday of Ordinary Time

Hey Everyone!

I hope everyone is well and enjoying the sun. Things have definitely picked up in Lake City and it’s great to see so many of you returning. The schedule for this week is going to look a little different, as I will be at the Intergenerate Conference, where I’ll be presenting a paper on my Biblical view of intergenerationality, teaching a workshop on cultivating intergenerational holy moments, and leading a “taste and see” event about the Bible timeline game I’ve been developing this spring with our Intergenerational Study of the Bible for Youth. Consequently, there will be no games or Wednesday Bible study this week.

We had a nice group last night at the first session of our study on world religions. If you missed the class, but would like to tune in, you can find that video and many of our past studies and sermons on our YouTube page:

This Sunday, June 11, is the first Sunday of Ordinary time. That means we are returning to the color green until next November! This week we’re still meeting in the sanctuary for worship and we’ll also have a special doughnut fellowship time.

I’ll be preaching from the Genesis 12:1-9 passage–the Abrahamic Covenant. Without question, it is one of the most important passages in the Old Testament. Join us in person and on Zoom this Sunday to find out why. You can read that passage and the other lectionary texts in the online order of worship below.

This Sunday is also the Sheriff’s Office Appreciation event that is hosted by all the Lake City churches. Like last years, CPC is providing the doughnuts, 200 to be exact. (It’s a good thing I bought a commercial doughnut maker. ;)) To that end, we’ll be cranking out doughnuts in Darley from 9am until the event. If you’re interested in helping make the doughnuts, glazing them, and package them, please text me at (206) 962-9886.

Here are your announcements for the week ahead:

Sheriff’s Office Appreciation Sunday
Join us Sunday June 11 at 1:00pm in the town park for our ecumenical Sheriff’s Office Appreciation Sunday. Just like last year, CPC is bringing the doughnuts and we’ll be making them for fellowship too. Consider helping us make doughnuts in Darley after Sunday’s fellowship time. 

Games Up Here
No games tonight, Monday, June 12. See you next week!

Wednesday Bible Study 
No Wednesday Bible Study this week, while Jason is at the Intergenerate Conference in Nashville. See you next week for our second session of World Religions. 

Men’s Prayer Breakfast
Men’s Prayer Breakfast is happening this week on Thursday, June 15 at 7:00am.

Help Us Staff the Trail Hiker Center
Consider offering a couple hours a week to help staff the Trail Hiker Center. Sign up after the Sunday service in Darley Hall (check out the bulletin board for the sign up sheet). 

Cookie Drive
It’s that time of year, we need help replenishing our cookie supply for summer Sunday fellowship. Please consider baking a couple dozen cookies and putting them in a freezer bag and dropping them off in Darley.
