Fifth Sunday of Ordinary Time

Hey Everyone,

Undoubtably, summer is in full-swing this week here in Lake City. I can hardly believe that the Fourth of July was only a few days ago.

This Sunday, July 9th, we’ll continue worshiping outside on the lawn as we return to our Church History Summer Series with a look at the first two centuries of the church. We’ll also be singing the oldest hymn known in the Christian church that has both lyrics and music, dating back to ca. 200AD. And if that’s not exciting enough, Amy Humphreys will be offering our special music this Sunday.

This Sunday also kicks-off our Lectionary Sunday School gathering. Join us at 8:30am in the CPC sanctuary as we read and discuss the lectionary texts for the week. You can check out the text we’ll be reading in the downloadable online order of worship below.

For those who missed it, we had an interesting Bible study last week as we explored Hinduism. If you’d like to watch/listen to it, you can find it and many other Bible study sessions, special teaching series, and most of the sermons from the last couple of years here:

This Sunday we’ll also host our first Hiker Meal starting at 5:30pm in the Trail Hiker Center. We’ll be serving brisket tacos in theme of a Tex-Mex/Mexican feast. Consider joining us and (if you’re able) bringing a dish, side, or dessert to share. Even if you can’t bring anything, we’d love to see you participate. If you’ve never experienced a hiker meal, you’re missing out. If you’re interested in helping set up for the meal, join us at 4:30pm in the Trail Hiker Center (418 Silver Street).

Beyond those updates, here’s your announcements for the week.
