Looking Toward this Sunday
Scripture Lesson: Matthew 5:3-16

John Ryan will preach at 8:30 and 9:45 in Lingle Chapel and 11:00 in the sanctuary.

Why is it that the Twenty-Third Psalm is among one of the most beloved verses in the Bible? It is often recited when we are facing hard times and need to feel secure. But there is so much more. Come explore the relationships between shepherds and sheep and what they have to tell us today!

Anne Cooper, Rosemary Klein, Dennis Appleyard and Dick Carver will sing  Holy, Holy, Holy at the 8:30 service.
The Summer Choir will sing Look at the World at the 11:00 service.

The congregation will celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism  with  Eli Bennett Wheeler, born March 11, 2018, son of Brian and Amanda Wheeler at the 8:30 service.

The Session has approved a special offering for the people of Nicaragua during this time of crisis and violence that has disrupted lives and services. Today, Jamie Ragnone, will share news from our brothers and sisters in Nicaragua and how their lives are affected by this terrible time as we pray for them and support them. You may add your offering to the plate with the designation, "Nicaragua."

SUMMER CHOIR In the summertime, many people go to the beach and stick their toes in the water. Why not stick your musical toes in the water this summer and try out Summer Choir? Each week, anyone who likes to sing is invited to come to the choir room at 10:20 and learn that Sunday's anthem. The commitment is for one week at the time. Ideal for people who can't commit to regular weekly rehearsals or who travel too much.

BE A GOOD STEWARD OF CREATION  Our DCPC Green Group has ordered reusable grocery bags for your use. A $4 donation/bag will help us cover the cost of production.  Please consider buying one to help reduce the number of plastic bags that are blowing through our streets and floating through our oceans. You can pick yours up in the DCPC Office or before or after worship. Contact Julie Nardella if you have any questions.

The Charlotte Presbytery coordinates disaster response teams and they need a representative from DCPC (or several!) who would be willing to be contacts for disaster response when crises arise. This person would receive communications from the Presbytery and pass them along to DCPC members. You could also join the disaster response committee at the Presbytery level. If interested, contact Margo Wehrung.
