Chancel and Chime Choir News

I would like to thank all of the singers, musicians, and narrators who contributed their talents to our music ministry this year! As the choir takes a much-deserved summer break, I thank them for their dedicated service, faithfulness, fellowship and beautiful music. I look forward to our new beginning in September and welcome anyone who is interested in joining us in this ministry as we sing our prayers and praises to God. Laura Petrie

STEWARDSHIP THOUGHT: From the Service of the Sacrament: "Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of Sabaoth adored." Three times the angels cry out: "Holy, Holy, Holy!" which is an indication of the threeness in one God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This is the Name in which we are baptized. We have been made a part of God's family. And so we are called to live lives that are in harmony with our new family. We are to be godly and to live in God's image. As God is loving, kind, and generous - so are we called to be.
