This Sunday we continue with stories from the life of David. In 1 Samuel 1: 1, 17-27 David laments the death of his king and his friend. It’s an amazing contrast from last week’s high of defeating a giant. But contrasts are part of David’s life in God. And ours. Two services, 10 a.m. (e.g. “All people that on earth do dwell“) and 11:30 a.m. (e.g. “Our God is greater“), with Communion at 11: 30 a.m.
At both services, we will celebrate Vacation Bible Camp by showing a set of pictures from the week. A huge thank you to Judy Pemberton and her team, for putting on an excellent camp!
At 10 a.m., we will say farewell to Rosemary Stewart, who leaves this week, moving back to Scotland.
Has anyone ever wondered about a refresher or introduction course on Christianity? I’ll be offering one starting August 29th, for 5 Wednesdays in a row. Please mark your calendars.
As you know, one of the Ministers associated with Briarwood, John Vissers, is the Moderator of the 138th General Assembly. This week he represented the church at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and gave this address.
Thank you to Nancy W. here is the Summer newsletter.
P.S. If you look on the right hand side of the homepage, you should see a new section called “Goodreads”. These are books I have found helpful and recommend to you!
