Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord; Lord, hear my voice.  Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy.  If you, Lord, kept a record of sins, Lord, who could stand?  But with you there is forgiveness, so that we can, with reverence, serve you (Ps. 130:1-4).  We are a body of believers who put our trust in an all-knowing and ever-present God; one who knows our shortcomings but forgives us when we ask for it.  We know that Jesus loves us and faithfully works in our lives.

Tim Christo and Donna Nichols are inviting all church members to their wedding ceremony on July 7th at 10 a.m. Due to limited seating in the reception hall; the wedding reception is by invitation only.

A big THANK YOU to all in the congregation who participated in my 70th birthday surprise card shower.  My daughters’ goal was for me to receive 70 cards for my 70th birthday, and their goal was easily met and exceeded.  Interestingly & rewardingly for me,  I received cards from both my own generation as well as from “the younger” generation.  My living room mantle and hearth are now consumed by a display of these lovely cards.  —–  Bill Strunk
