Weekly Worship

Worship Matters

Have you taken your summer vacation yet? Do you return to a favorite place each year ... perhaps a cabin or campground or a lodge on a lake, or do you go somewhere new and different? Do you hike, swim, bike, fish, or go boating? Do you cook over a campfire or dine out? Do you watch the sun set and then rise again? Are you ready to leave, like right now! Me too.

The gospel selections for July find Jesus spending a lot of time on the water. Jesus crosses the Sea of Galilee several times taking his ministry to both familiar and distant shores, as the disciples get their lessons by the sea. Whether you will visit lake shores this summer, or not, at church we will be on the water with Jesus. Come and relax in an hour of centering peace and inspiration.

July is the moving month for United Methodist Pastors. Many churches will be saying Goodbye and Hello, as one pastor moves on and a new pastor is received. Keep all these places of transition in your prayers. Warren and I are blessed to serve you for a ninth year.
