Good morning everyone,
I would remind you that this Sunday is the 190th Anniversary and Homecoming Service with Communion. The sermon theme will be “What next?” which is a good sermon title for a church celebrating 190 years of ministry in this place. Please let your friends/relatives know. It should be a good time for everyone. There will be food following the worship service–chicken and drink will be provided, please bring a dish to pass.
I will be offering in the next two months some events just to get to know people and to learn more about the church and so that others can get to know something about me.
Beat the summer heat by coming to one of three “Sundaes On Sunday” Events!! Following worship on each of these three dates a lite luncheon and ice cream will be provided for you to meet with me and to get to know him (and each other) better.
July 11—we will be discussing Hills Church and do some historical reflections on important Hills Church celebrations and events. All you need to do is bring your memory!
August 8—I will be showing some slides of his time in Germany as a pastor from 2003-2004. I was exchange pastor for an 8,000 member church in Hennef, Germany. Come and hear how different religious life is in modern Germany compared to the U.S.
August 22—I will lead a Bible Study/presentation on the Church community interacting with its neighborhood. This will incorporate a Bible Study but also things I learned from pastoring a downtown church for 13 years.
Put these on your calendar now and feel free to drop in at any one, two, or all three of these special presentations. Friends and family, visitors and non-members are also welcome.
For questions, call me at 412-956-5252.
See you on Sunday!
Grace and Peace,
