Pastor’s Monthly Message

 

June is almost here! It’s the month of graduations, schools’ end, celebrations and the beginning of summer vacation. For some, schedules change and life takes on a difference pace. Finally, the weather seems like summer!

 

Sunday June 10th we will recognize our four 2018 high school graduates in worship, celebrate our Sunday school teachers, and the last day of Sunday school until Rally Day Sept.9TH.

 

June 20th those who signed up will travel, with friends from the UCC Church, to Lancaster for the Sight and Sound production of “Jesus”.

 

July 22nd is our annual Worship and Picnic in the Park- something you WILL NOT want to miss this year unless you are away on vacation. See related article!

 

During these summer months of vacations and time away, remember that God doesn’t take a vacation from us. A couple of reminders:

1) When you are unable to attend worship on Sundays, please remember that the needs of the church continue. If you are one who prefers to contribute financially when you worship rather than make an annual financial commitment, please  drop by the church with or mail to us, your contribution as if you were in worship. Your continuing monetary support not only helps us as a church, but is also a way of offering gratitude to God for your life’s blessings.

2) When you are on the beach, in the boat, hiking the trails, camping in the woods, enjoying the pool, the creeks and riverbanks, the park, the playground, or the deep blue sky, take time to drink deeply of your surroundings and all of creation. Pause and give thanks to God and the midst of it all, allow your soul to be fed.  God is ever present with us!

 

“The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world and its inhabitants too. Because God is the one who established it on the seas; God set it firmly on the waters.” (Psalm 24:1-2)

 

I hope to see you in worship as often as possible!

 

Peace and Blessings
