Week Two: Knowing Jesus

The “Dear Church” series explores the pastoral letters of John (1 John, 2 John, 3 John) and the Book of Revelation. Throughout these texts, John encourages the church and helps them navigate living like Jesus in the real world while anticipating the life to come.

Psalm for the Day: Psalm 5:1-8
Scripture of the Week:  1 John 2:3-6

PRAYER FOR THE WEEK

Keep, O Lord, your household the Church in your steadfast
faith and love, that through your grace we may proclaim
your truth with boldness, and minister your justice with
compassion; for the sake of our Savior Jesus Christ, who
lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now
and for ever. Amen.

OPPORTUNITIES TO GIVE

Pregnancy Resource Center Mission
As a congregation we are once again doing the baby bottle challenge between Mother's day and Father's day.  This is one of our church's big mission objectives each year for a local agency.
The Pregnancy Resource Center is an important organization that strives to help pregnant women in all aspects of the challenge of having a baby.  Your donations are GREATLY appreciated and used wisely. Please take a bottle and try to add to it daily during the next month.  The bottle needs to be returned Father's Day. If you are writing a check, please make it out to the Pregnancy Resource Center (PRC).

Fellowship Hall Almost Paid Off!
Thank you to all those who have supported the building of our Fellowship Hall. Our goal is to have it paid off by our 175th Anniversary Celebration this September. We only have around $3200 left to raise to pay off the loan. If you would like to designate a gift towards the Fellowship Hall fund, please be sure to specify that by writing "Fellowship Hall" in the memo of your check, or on your offering envelope. Keep up the great work!
