Weekly Prayer
Holy God, maker of us all, you call us to love our neighbors as ourselves and teach us that faith without works is dead. Open us to the opportunities for ministry that lie before us, where faith and works and the need of our neighbor come together in the name of Jesus Christ, our Savior. Amen.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, 19th century
"Go put your creed into your deed."

Francis Beaumont, 17th century
"Faith without works is like a bird without wings; though she may hop with her companions on earth, yet she will never fly with them to heaven."  

Henry Adams, 19th century
"What you do speaks so loudly I can't hear what you are saying."

Sunday Worship at 10:00 a.m. What We Live...

The true test of the integrity of any worship, whether private or public, is what it leads to (or doesn’t) in terms of changed lives for the worshippers, and changed conditions for the poor, the oppressed, and the abandoned.

One of prayer’s most effective, nonverbal expressions is in some form of positive action: in one’s work done well, in deeds of kindness and compassion, in greater commitment to social justice.

~ Prayer: the Hidden Fire, by Tom Harpur (From Seasons of the Spirit)


 

Outdoor Worship Sunday August 16

 

Enjoy the last days of summer! Service begins at 10:00 a.m. Some folding chairs will be set up for people who might be uncomfortable sitting on the permanent benches. Feel free to  bring your own lawn chairs if you desire. Parking for outdoor worship services is behind the Scadin barn for those who may find it difficult to walk longer distances and cannot use the designated parking near the church. A “Go/No Go” weather-related decision will be made at 9:00 a.m. the morning of the service. There will be a new member reception and baptism at this service. Fellowship hour follows immediately after the service and will be held in the Fellowship Hall in the church.


 

Pickup Choir this Sunday, August 9.

 No rehearsals except a half-hour before the service starts. (9:30 a.m.)   This is a great way to try out the choir!
