We welcome you to join us for worship on Sunday, June 25 at 10:00 a.m., our summer service time.
The sermons are currently exploring the book of Genesis with the sermon series Blessing.
Through the readings from Genesis, we find God’s purposes universal in scope and God’s blessing all-inclusive in reach.
Rev. David J. Hanna will deliver the sermon Blessing: Both Ends of the Bargain:
God takes Abraham outside and shows him the vast number of stars and tells him that so will be the number of his descendants. God promises land and offspring beyond imaging to Abraham. Please note God is giving, Abraham is receiving. In Abraham’s ancient world, that’s unheard of!
Musical contributions will be provided by the summer choir.
Following the service, everyone is invited to gather in the Chalice Room next to the Sanctuary for refreshments and fellowship.
Adult Sunday School is open to all and is focusing on A Study of the Psalms, Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. in the Dining Room.
Psalms make up some of the most beautiful literature in our religious tradition. Their words are used in multiple aspects of worship and in the prayer life of the faithful. Psalms also offer some of the most challenging and candid conversations with God. We often look at Psalms with an eye on those writings that make us comfortable. What is it about the Psalms that make us uncomfortable? Do they have something to say to us also? The words of some Psalms may be unsettling, disruptive, and even violent; but, those same words offer us a glimpse into the depth of a soul reaching out to God even in anguish and even in anger. Together, we will look deep into the Psalms that comfort, the Psalms that uplift, and the Psalms that challenge.
