I pray that God will continue to richly bless you as you go about your daily duties. Blessings to all of you as you go on vacation and as you return from vacation. Some of you will be headed off for RAGBRAI, our prayers for you are safety and adventure.
This Sunday Sarah Sun will be leading in worship along with Ben on keyboard. Our test this week is the parable of the wheat and tares [weeds] from Matthew 13. It is the first parable to begin with “the kingdom of heaven is like …” It describes for all Jesus’ followers, for all time something about the kingdom. Come out and hear what God is up to in our time.
Special praise when it comes to cleaning the church. Someone has donated the funds to pay for cleaning services to clean the church each week. Praise God and thank you!
Lastly, something that didn’t make the newsletter is the women’s sewing opportunity on Sunday, July 29th from 4-7 p.m. The goal of the day is to make pillowcase dresses. There will be flyers at church with more info this Sunday.
I apologize that I will not be able to send out an electronic newsletter this week. We will have printed issues available at church.
