          Welcome to the house of the Lord! What does it mean to trust? We are told we can rely on handshakes, promises, contracts, and oaths to guarantee action we can count on. But all too often we are disappointed and end up cynical. What, then, does trust mean? Who can do what they promise? Only Jesus. His promise of the resurrections seemed impossible, but our savior showed he was reliable. We pray you will feel God’s presence and the warmth of Christian fellowship as you worship with us. We are glad you are here today and invite you to become a part of this household of faith. Please see the minister or one of the elders if you have any questions about our congregation.

If you are visiting with us today, please fill out a visitor card and place it in the offering plate.

We welcome John Nowaczewski to our pulpit this morning. John has been with us before and is filling the pulpit since Bill has been on the mission trip.

            Plans are in the works for a new pictorial directory. We will be taking pictures in the fellowship on September 19th and 20th from 2 – 8 PM. Circle your calendars now . . . with more information to follow. Please see Gay Sprague or Betty Conley if you have any questions.           

            Remember The River ministry in Johnson City by dropping your travel-sized shampoo and soap in the collection basket outside the office.

            Make sure you have a 2-Cents-A-Meal jar! Every time you sit down to eat, drop two cents into the jar and make a difference. Our youth are sponsoring this program to show how the Lord can turn just a little into big blessings.

            There will be no senior youth group meeting today. Next Saturday, July 29, we will go to the Mayland Observatory and observe the stars. We will meet at the church at 8pm and hopefully go see the Brown Mountain Lights afterwards. Please wear closed toed shoes and have a flashlight.

            This Wednesday, July 26, the youth will meet at noon for choir, and we will then go to Hidden Creek water park in Marion for an afternoon of fun. Admission is free for the youth.

 Sandi Carter is the head usher for July

          There is no attendant present to care for children during worship and other events. The nursery will be available for use by parents should a child become restless during worship. We have “busy bags” hanging in the narthex for children to take into the sanctuary. We encourage families with young children to begin using these bags.

           We ask that a parent accompany his/her child should the need arise to leave the sanctuary during worship. Safety concerns and insurance regulations require that children not be unattended on church property.
