This is the group of amazing teens I worked with at Living River last week. We're taking a break at Pie Lab in Greensboro here.
These kids built new benches around the Peace Pole at camp, helped out with the Hale Empowerment Revitalization Organization, and canoed the Cahaba River pulling (a whole bunch of) trash out of the river.
There's still time to sign kids up for camp for the coming weeks,
and scholarships are available!
Sunday, June 23rd
Second Sunday after Pentecost
9:30 a.m. Service of the Lord's Day
10:45 a.m. - Summer Sunday School
Grace to you, and peace...
Wow - the Hymn Sing yesterday was so beautiful. Pat Fitzsimmons poured all she had into the organ, AmandaKlimko led us through singing and on the piano, and Emily, Craig, Clara, and Madeline Cagle all pitched in with special music on a pair of french horns, a bassoon, and a trumpet. There's a lot of magical talent in this little church!
After several on-again-off-again weeks of travel for conferences, vacation, and camp at Living River, I'm now here and in town for the foreseeable future. I look forward to catching up with folks, catching up on paperwork, and getting back into the rhythm of an EPC week.
And after several extra-special Sundays in a row, we're back to a fairly "ordinary" Sunday. Of course, that means beautiful music, the participation of children, an easily-amused pastor, and a full-throated welcome to the people of God. On this Second Sunday after Pentecost, we'll hear about a vision given to Peter, celebrate the Lord's Supper, and share the peace of Christ. After worship, Kids' Summer Sunday School continues and the adult study of the book of Daniel keeps rolling.
The folks who joined in for Presbyterian Summer Kickball last week had a blast. I plan to be there this Thursday (5:30 p.m. at Southminster Presbyterian) and you should absolutely join us. It's fun and relaxed and a wee bit of exercise.
A huge thank you goes out to Melissa Tate for making all the right moves that resulted in our much-needed new pew cushions. If you want to know more, you'll have to come sit on Sunday!
