Worship this Sunday, June 30
10:00 am in the Sanctuary
Sometimes the journey takes us by surprise, even when we feel like we've been preparing for it our whole lives - even when we've been praying for it to start. Join us this Sunday as we begin our summer worship series, The Journey. Melanie Marsh Baum's sermon is entitled "Time to Go."  The s cripture is Exodus 12:21–39 . Our L ay Worship Leader is Jennifer DoVale.
Music Notes
Our soloist this weekend, Aidan Klemm, is a chemical engineering student entering his fifth year at Case Western Reserve University. He has sung in the Case Concert Choir and regularly sings with the Covenant choir. 

T he Anthem is Wayfaring Stranger from The Sacred Harp, arranged by John Jacob Niles and the Offertory is Jesu, the Very Thought of Thee , by S.S. Wesley, arranged by James Easson.
