Stewardship Campaign
This Sunday is Celebration Sunday - during both services we will be passing the offering plates to collect your givings and commitment cards (remember to bring yours!). After each service we will be celebrating with coffee and cake. Thank you in advance for your generosity towards Marshall, and all that we do. Sincerely, the Stewardship & Finance Committee.


Summer Prayer Challenge
Our reading of the Letter to the Ephesians during the month of May taught us the importance of prayer for the life and vitality of the church. The Apostle Paul also taught us what kind of things we should be praying for. Based on Paul's guidelines, here are two prayers that we are challenging everyone to pray over the summer (and beyond if you like!). You could combine them into one prayer, or say one in the morning and one in the evening. Feel free to add whatever the Holy Spirit puts on your heart. Let's open ourselves to the blessings of sustained corporate prayer!!

God, open the eyes of our hearts so that we can know you better. Reveal to us the abundant blessings of our inheritance in Christ, who is our hope for the redemption of the world. Fill us with your Holy Spirit, your immeasurable power. Help us, Lord, to experience these blessings together as the body of Christ. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Father God, strengthen our church and our leaders in Christ. Give us boldness and perseverance to Walk in Your Way and Serve in Your World. Protect us from the evil one as we seek to do your will as Christ's body on earth. Grow our trust and faith in you, by the power of your Holy Spirit, in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Read & React:  The Acts of the Apostles
We are all very familiar with the stories of the Gospels, but less so with those of the early Church.   But knowing how the earliest Christians put their faith in Jesus into action gives us valuable insights into our role as the Church today. The Acts of the Apostles is Luke's Volume II of his systematic investigation into Jesus' life, ministry, work and impact. This reading plan - one chapter per day - will guide you through the book in 28 days. Enjoy!  Click on the link:  Acts of the Apostles Calendar  to Download a copy.

Lost and Found
Next time you are at the church, take a look in the Lost and Found Bin.  We have lots of treasures there that got left behind.  Items not claimed by the end of the month will be donated.
