Looking Toward this Sunday July 2, 2017

Scripture: Acts Acts 9: 1-19
Sermon: The People's Choice: What does it mean to answer God's call?

Lib McGregor Simmons will preach at 8:30 and 9:45 in Lingle Chapel and at 11 in the sanctuary.

The People's Choice theme for this Sunday is "What does it mean to answer God's call?"  Acts 9 provides two stories of God's call.  One of them is dramatic, involving a voice that stops Saul in his tracks.  The second occurs less dramatically as God opens Ananias's eyes to a new vision of someone he had considered an enemy.  These two calls remind us that God's call is always a gift and that responding to it is never easy.

Deb Cameron, soprano, and Rosemary Klein,recorder,will sing Benedictus at the 8:30 service.
The Summer Choir will sing Come to Me, All Pilgrims Thirsty  at the 11 service.

The Sacrament of the Lord's supper will be celebrated from trays at 8:30 and by intinction at 9:45 and 11.

Ten Cents a Meal Offering  will be received at all worship services today . Please place your donations in the red baskets. If each family at DCPC contributed 30¢ a day each day for 30 days, that would equal $9 per month.

YEAR FOUR, LET'S DO MORE"! This project has been an overwhelming success for the past three Summers.  We are calling this Summer's project, "Year Four, Let's Do More"!  Our Congregation will be providing bags of food for 10 weeks instead of 9 for students from Blythe Elementary School.  That's 250 bags!  We will also be adding fresh, seasonal produce to each bag each week.  This need is tremendous, and the solution is simple.  Read the simple steps below to see how you can help DCPC meet this greater challenge this Summer.  
Follow these simple steps:
1.  Choose one or more of the following Fridays that you can provide a bag of food: June 16, 23, 30, July 7, 14, 21, 28, August 4, 11, 18
2.  Email
Catherine Brag
  or  Rosemary Klein  to sign up for  your specific dates.  A reminder will be sent the Monday of the week that you are providing a bag.
3.  Use the following list to fill your bag. Remember to use a brown paper bag.  
Helpful tips:
·  Store brands are fine
·  ½ gallon of milk and cheese sticks will be  added before delivery
·  Small variations from this list are acceptable
·  Fresh Seasonal produce
4.  Pack all food in brown paper grocery bag
5.  Bring your full bag to the Student Center  by 9:30 A.M. on your particular Friday. 
 If you'd prefer for someone to shop for you, write a check to DCPC and write "Blythe Food" in the memo line.
