"We invite everyone to share communion around God's altar. 
We strive to be a welcoming and relevant Christian community doing what matters through prayer, worship, teaching, outreach, fellowship, and service.  
We will demonstrate the real life application of scripture, tradition, and
reason by providing a safe place to respond to each other's needs,   
hurts, joys, and interests."

This Sunday's Anthem:

Down to the River to Pray
Leanne Kinney, Mallory Nonnemaker, Brandon Nonnemaker, Larry Holbrook

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the starry crown
Good Lord, show me the way!

O sisters, let's go down,
Let's go down, come on down
O sisters, let's go down
Down in the river to pray

O brothers, let's go down
Let's go down, come on down
Come on, brothers, let's go down
Down in the river to pray

O fathers, let's go down
Let's go down, come on down
O fathers, let's go down
Down in the river to pray

O mothers, let's go down
Let's go down; don't you want to go down?
Come on, mothers, let's go down
Down in the river to pray

O sinners, let's go down
Let's go down, come on down
O sinners, let's go down
Down in the river to pray

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about that good old way
And who shall wear the robe and crown
Good Lord, show me the way!

While it is hard to pinpoint the exact origins of the song, "Down to the River to Pray" has been referred to as a hymn, a spiritual and an Appalachian song. Some believe it was a Native American Tribal song that was adapted to include Christian lyrics. It is attributed to George H. Allan in the Slave Songbook of 1867, and Alison Krauss popularized it in the 2000 film, O Brother, Where Art Thou? The song also is known by alternate titles such as "Down in the Valley to Pray," "Come, Let Us All Go Down" and "The Good Old Way." Whatever the title might truly be, the deeply spiritual song is about keeping the faith in a time of darkness.

Hey everyone. 

I hope you are all enjoying your summer! We're having an  amazing time at Kanuga for JYP and SYP! Next year we need all of our youth to sign up to come! It's a  beautiful place with amazing people from all over the southeast. 

Youth group meets this Sunday at 9:30. I only had 2 responses to my email survey, so the baseball game for Sunday will not be happening. 
I'll see you at church! 

These dates do not include church events.  All meetings are at 9:30 a.m.
