Happy Father's Day! June 16
If you forgot to get a gift, we will have ties for sale for $100.00 each in the library after worship on June 16. All proceeds go to the church.
Glory to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit!
Our readings for Sunday, June 16 are: Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31; Psalm 8; Romans 5:1-5; John 16:12-15.
Sunday, June 16, is Trinity Sunday, a Holy Day set aside to honor the unique Christian doctrine of the Trinity as proclaimed in the Nicene Creed: God is Three-in-One, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. For two millennia, the Trinity has so vexed the learned and the faithful that today is also called “Heresy Sunday.” In our sermon we will discuss that the Trinity is not so much understood as experienced.
"...because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us." Romans 5:5
God's love has indeed been poured into our hearts, not only for our benefit but for the benefit of all whom assist. Often we are conduit through which God's love flows to others.
Celebration of the Sacrament of Baptism
Sunday morning, June 16, we receive Daisy Jordan Wolfe into the household of God through the sacrament of Holy Baptism. Please congratulate her parents David and Natalie Wolfe and her grandparents after worship.
