Happy 4th of July, Church!

I hope you found a way to celebrate over the weekend, though I recognize that it was probably not what you had planned. We are enjoying some family time… something we get a lot of these days!

Special thanks this week to Joann and Jan for playing the bells before we ship them off for some repairs! We also recorded an upcoming performance of the bells with Bob Paraska. This week’s service also includes a performance from Noah and I’m very grateful to my spouse for accompanying me with some music during the sermon. Thanks to Claire for reading scripture!

I confess to you that I forgot the Lord’s Prayer during this week’s service. Forgive me, please…. and maybe take a moment to say it on your own after watching!
