104 degrees. That’s what my phone says the temperature is as I write this. But, happily, I am in 74 degree air conditioned comfort and, I pray, so are you. Check out what we’re up to in the next week or two and pause to pray for your friends at All Saints.
Second Sunday Lunch and Jubilee Collection This Week!
This Sunday, you are invited to join us for lunch immediately after service. Katana and Charles Zackey will be providing the Ham. Would you please bring a side dish or dessert to compliment? We have a new Jubilee Box at the back of the church that you can make donations to at any time during the month. Our congregation has been asked to bring boxed macaroni and cheese but you may bring other non-perishable food items as well. Thanks for all you do to support our neighbors in need.
Islam and the Roots of Modern Jihadism, More Seating!
Our first session of the Islam class was rousing success. So much so, that not everyone could find a seat in Classroom 2. We have moved the round tables out of the room so there should be plenty of seating for all. Remember, we begin at 9:05 am! Room 2 is to the left as you enter the main lobby and just beyond the formal parlor.
50th Wedding Anniversary, Renewal of Vows and Reception, Sunday, August 16th at 2:30 PM
Wendel and Jan Miller celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary on Sunday, the 16th with a renewal of vows service and reception. You are invited to join us for this very special milestone in their lives. A brief service begins at 2:30 with punch and cake following.
Sunday, August 23rd, Visitors’ Sunday
Invite family, friends and neighbors to our special visitors’ Sunday service. As we will soon move into our fall routines (not soon enough given this heat), this is an opportunity to introduce others to All Saints. Pray about who you might bring and let’s make the 23rd a wonderful celebration.
SCRIPTURE OF THE WEEK – On Marriage
“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband. Ephesians 5:31-33
As always, if you are in need of pastoral care, please do feel free to call me at 432-853-2751.
Your fellow servant,
