Join us for Worship 
Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost
August 12, 2018
10:00 AM

    "Shouldn’t someone more eloquent preach, or a heavenly chorus sing God’s praise? And the water we use in Baptism: it’s not holy, or special, or different. It’s from the same tap from which we drink and bathe and brush our teeth. Same with the bread and wine of communion – these aren’t special either. They’re ordinary, common, mundane; hardly worthy of God’s attention, let alone God’s use.
    "And yet we are bold enough, audacious enough, perhaps even foolish enough, to confess that God does use such ordinary things, such common elements, to achieve God’s will and to bring to the world God’s salvation.
    "God works through flawed pastors, jaded teachers, worn-out secretaries, over-worked government officials, exhausted parents, and the like. Just as surely as God uses ordinary bread and wine to bring to us God’s saving word, so does God also use each of us to accomplish God’s will and work in God’s world." - David Lose


We'll worship in air-conditioned Fellowship Hall
