Fourth Sunday After Pentecost
June 17, 2018
"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:

He Touched Me
Solo by Dolores Chandler

Shackled by a heavy burden
'Neath a load of guilt and shame
Then the hand of Jesus touched me
And now I am no longer the same

He touched me, oh He touched me
And oh the joy that floods my soul!
Something happened and now I know
He touched me and made me whole

Since I met this blessed Savior
Since He's cleansed and made me whole
Oh I will never cease to praise Him (to praise)
I'll shout it while eternity rolls

We need donations of Tawny Port  for our Communion celebration!  
Please place your contributions in the basket provided .

Thank you!  
Congratulations, Sophie Alexander . . . 
. . . for being selected to go for Diocese of Atlanta Youth Leadership Training @ Seabrook Island, South Carolina with Bishop Wright. You make us proud Sophie!!!
