Ninth Sunday of Ordinary Time

Hey Everyone,

I hope this post finds you all well and in good spirits. It is hard to believe that it’s already August and that we’re halfway through the summer. We’ve got some exciting things coming up so please check out what’s happening below.

First, let me say that I’m sorry that the Zoom broadcast has been cutting out shortly after the sermon the past few weeks. It appears that the heat from the sun is causing my computer to overheat. I’m working on a solution for Sunday, so don’t fret. 🙂

This Sunday, August 5, we’ll be exploring one of the darkest times in the history of the church–1054 through 1348–when the expansion of Christianity was brought about through the violence of the Crusades.

Although we’ll still have fellowship after the worship service on Sunday, all are welcome to join me at the fishing pier of Memorial Park for Corbin Humphreys’s baptism, which will take place at 11:45am. Lyn Lampert will be officiating and I’ll be offering a prayer of blessing. If you’re able, please consider joining us for this holy sacrament down by the river.

Also, in case you didn’t see it on the Lake City Friends and Locals page, this week’s theme for the Hiker Meal is Thanksgiving. Break out your favorite turkey-day recipe and come join us for the most magical meal of the week. 🙂

Finally, a quick update on our annual Gold Hill gathering. Although we’re still working out the details, please save-the-date for Saturday, August 26th from 5:00pm-7:00pm.

Here’s your announcements for the week!
