Worship Bulletin - July 13, 2014


Come and experience the wonders of being the Church!  “Ordinary Time,” the period between Pentecost and Advent, is a wonderful movement through which the Church is lead to re-explore the wonders of the Christian faith.  During this period we don’t only go over what Christians believe, but what it means for us to believe these things.  So that together, as a fellowship, we might better serve our Lord and bless this world.

Call to Worship

God of life, thank you for each person you have placed in this congregation and for the gifts you have given them. We pray that everyone here— rich and poor, men and women, young and old— will find effective ways to use their gifts for the common good. May our worship today encourage and challenge all who come to know and use the gifts you have them given for your purposes in this world. Through Christ we pray. Amen.

July Benevolence: City Team Located in the heart of Chester, Pennsylvania Cityteam serves those in desperate need throughout the Delaware Valley. Dedicated and caring staff and volunteers reach out to those in need of a hot meal, a safe shelter, and decent clothing. We also offer a recovery program for those men that are on the road of destruction from drugs and alcohol. We connect with low-income families that are in need of an emergency food box to help stretch their income at the end of the month. Mothers with at-risk young children stop by every Wednesday afternoon to receive diapers, formula, and other baby items. You can make a difference by volunteering, donating or financially supporting this special ministry to the poor and homeless.

Summer Bible School Bible School is here, and we are STILL in need of some supplies!  See our sign up sheets in Memorial Hallway to see what you can donate.  We are also in need of small toys to give away as prizes.  These can be  new or gently used toys such as small stuffed animals, balls, stickers, etc.  See Jen with questions!  Any donations can be placed in the boxes on the tables.  Thanks in advance for your help!
