Happy Fourth of July



To be a follower of Jesus is a tough calling. We will take the rough with the smooth.

God calls Christians to act courageously when following the Way of Jesus. It may bring us into conflict with political agendas and laws. It may create conflict and loss within families and communities. The disciples practicing Christian faith put them at odds with the Jewish practices of their community and families. But they continued to speak out. Today it may also cause some to be at odds with their family practices or beliefs. But we are assured that at no time are we alone through the trying times. God will not prevent sparrows from falling nor the loss of hair, but He knows about and cares about each one. Lament, fear, conflict are a part of life and we are not immune, just beloved through it all.

From Seasons of the Spirit


Sunday, August 20

service is held near the Scadin barn (service begins at usual time, 10:00 a.m.). Some folding chairs will be set up for people who may be uncomfortable sitting on the permanent benches. Feel free to bring your own lawn chairs. Parking for outdoor 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. Fellowship will be held back at the church, inside. A go/no go weather-related (or mosquito) decision will be made by 9:00 am. This is the last outdoor service for the season.



Congratulations Graduates!
