This congregation welcomes you no matter who you are or where you come from. We are Christ's people and this is Christ's place with its doors wide open.
If you are passing through, Godspeed. If you are looking for a worship home, stay with us. We invite visitors to join us, but most of all to return often.
Fifth Sunday Hymn Sing! CANCELLED
OOPS! With apologies to all who were eagerly anticipating the Fifth-Sunday Hymn Sing on Sunday, July 31, please note that it has been cancelled. We realized that we will also be hosting an Ohmann lecturer on that day and didn’t want to have two events for everyone happening at the same time! Thank you for your understanding.
OHMANN LECTURE SERIES 2016: THE WORLD AROUND US
Concluding on July 31, Lyndon Harris presents the second of a two-part series entitled “Moving from Fear to Love through the Power of Forgiveness.” Lyndon Harris is the co-director of Tigg’s Pond Retreat Center in Zirconia, North Carolina, where he is developing a Journey to Forgiveness Institute. He served more than twenty years as a pastor, and his work at Ground Zero as priest-in-charge of Saint Paul’s Chapel has been written about widely.
BRING A CAN WHEN YOU CAN
The July Food Focus for IAM (changed) is canned pasta, macaroni and cheese, canned soup and instant oatmeal. Other nonperishable food items are always welcome, as well as personal care items such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, toilet paper, shampoo, soap, deodorant, disposable razors and women’s hygiene products. Local Missions Ministry will deliver the food and hygiene items. Other needs are men’s and children’s athletic shoes, socks and jeans, bed sheets and pillow cases. Monetary donations are always appreciated. Disposable diapers in all sizes are needed. Clothing, linens, etc., may be taken directly to I.A.M.
SCHOOL SUPPLIES FOR IAM
Summer activities are in full swing and it seems like the school year just ended. IAM is already starting their annual school supply drive to insure that every child will have new supplies when school starts again. There is a container in the narthex (next to the food pantry) for your donations which will be delivered to IAM. The supplies that are needed most at this time include: 3-ring binders, dividers, notebook paper, pocket folders, composition books, colored pencils, markers, erasers, highlighters, rulers, mechanical pencils, pens, pencils, pencil sharpeners, pencil pouches and boxes, index cards, scissors and calculators. Also, there is a great need for backpacks suitable for high school students.
