Notes of Joy - Week of July 18
This Week's Gospel: Mark 6:30-34, 53-56
Mark’s gospel makes clear how great is the press of the crowd, with its countless needs to be met, on Jesus and his disciples. Yet in today’s gospel Jesus advises his disciples to get away and rest, to take care of themselves. Sometimes we think that when others are in great need we shouldn’t think of ourselves at all; but Jesus also honors the caregivers’ need. We are sent from Christ’s table to care for others and for ourselves.

Communion Plan Update
We will be transitioning to communion on the 2nd and 4th Sundays in July and August.

On these Sundays, ushers will direct people to two communion stations at the front. At each station, we will use the pre-packaged communion wafers/wine. Pastor Sean will be at one station and we will need a communion assistant at the other. You can signup for this on the Worship Assistant Schedule on the bulletin board in the narthex. See Pr. Sean if you have any questions or want a little instruction. All are welcome!
