For behold, He who forms mountains and creates the wind And declares to man what are His thoughts, He who makes dawn into darkness And treads on the high places of the earth, The LORD God of hosts is His name.
Thanks to Eleta Pierce for providing a Midweek Update as the GebbbenGreens enjoy a few days of vacation. Here are announcements and reminders for the week:
· This Sunday, August 2, we will have a guest preacher, Dixie Branchlow, join us in worship and communion.
· Thank you to everyone who helped out with Project Home last week. The families loved the project and enjoyed our company. I heard from more than one person that the experience helped put faces to the label of “homeless” and helped remind us of who we are helping when we take up special offerings and fill our Christmas tree with pajamas and socks. Edgcumbe’s building situation makes it unlikely that we’ll be able to host families for a month, but we can always volunteer to help with Project Home at other churches. The shelter will move to St. Mark’s Catholic Church on Dayton Ave. in St. Paul this Friday. They are still in need of evening and overnight volunteers – if you’d like to help, go to http://tinyurl.com/pprdwy3 and sign up.
· Mark Saturday, August 8 on your calendar! This is our joint worship service with Lake Nokomis Presbyterian Church at 5pm here at Edgcumbe on Saturday, followed by a potluck dinner (with no worship on Sunday, August 9). The church will have grills, hotdogs and fixings - you all are invited to bring a favorite dish to share.
Let Jesus be our peace today...
