Mitten Tree and Children's Books Collection dates December 5th & 12th On December 5th and 12th we will again be sponsoring our “Mitten Tree” in the Narthex. These will be for local children for the cold winter ahead. We are also partnering with the Louisville Community Cupboard to give gifts to local children. We have decided on Children’s books as our donation. We are asking the congregation to purchase children’s books for ages 0-12, boys and girls, to be distributed for Christmas in our local Louisville community. The director of the Cupboard said he welcomes Christian books! We are in need of approximately 31 books. This collection will run concurrently with the mitten tree, and we will set up in the Narthex to collect both items. Again, the Church and Society Committee thanks you in advance for being an awesome giving congregation who always steps up and donates!
The Blessing of Backpacks will also be on August 15, during the worship hour. We are requesting all students including preschoolers, to bring their backpacks to church and when asked to come to the front of the church the children can wear their backpacks for a special blessing for the school year. Children can bring their backpacks to kid’s worship and Sunday school for easy pickup.
Call To Worship Assemble with songs on your lips and expectations in your hearts. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, and let your glory be over all the earth. Look not to things that are seen, but to realities that are unseen. For things that are seen are transient, but things that are unseen are eternal. Give thanks to God among all the people; praise God among all the nations. God’s steadfast love and faithfulness lift us up and save us.

Christ Works! Some of us Baby Boomers were raised up with the Captain Penny rule; “You can fool some of the people all the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool Mom. She’s pretty smart and pretty nice, if you do what Mom says, you won’t go far wrong.” A Mother’s primary goal, (a responsibility she’s entrusted by God) is get the “smart” and “right” ways transferred to her children! Her mission is to give them Courage to be independent, Faith to rely on God and Wisdom to make mature decisions! As kids observe her counsel, I am convinced we won’t go far wrong. In John 21, Jesus is at the intersection of the transfer of the mission to His disciples. Prior to His departure to heaven, Jesus must resolve an awkward relationship. He will confront Peter about the inconsistency in his loyalty. This Sunday in worship (Mother’s Day), we will consider the gap between what was and what will be--how loyalty effects not just family but our relationship with Christ. We will hear God’s path for restoring what’s been broken. This Sunday at 9 AM we invite all to gather for worship in the Sanctuary or North parking lot (89.5 FM #Lot4praise)! We will sing, Pray together, Celebrate moms and I am excited to share a message from John 21, “At the Intersection of Failure and Restoration!” In Christ. Pastor Larry
