Dear FPC—

                Hello  Friends!  What a wonderful time of worship we had on Sunday.  I look forward to hearing about your experiences with praying “God use me” prayers over the next weeks! 

On Monday we had a very special time of remembering and celebrating the life of Lavern Gould.  Thank you to all who came and who so graciously provided lunch and hospitality to the whole Gould family and their guests.  Thanks also to the Grace Notes and to Margaret, as well as Jeanie, Stephanie, and Megan for the wonderful music. 

              Looking ahead, we will be focusing on the why of our worship—why do we do what we do in our worship services.  Over the next four Sundays we’ll look at times of music and worship, celebrating the Lord’s Supper, the reading and preaching of the Word, and the sacrament of Baptism.  Adam will be preaching the next 3 Sundays and then I’ll be back on August 18. 

              Alice and I are looking forward to our trip and to getting back home with you.  See you in a few weeks! 

 

              Pastor Steve
