Note from Pastor Rick

I had a good, quick trip to Chicago Monday and Tuesday. I am working with an ecumenical group planning a conference for next fall celebrating the work of pioneering figures in the movement for full inclusion of lgbtqia people in the church. The conference will also focus on learning from that past was it is needed to continue the work into the future. You will hear more about it as the plans progress. This week Pastor Gregory is in Florida planning the wedding of a friend that will take place later in the fall. Next week I will be going to Florida for a few days for a spirituality retreat hosted by the Alliance of Baptists. This is a central piece of my continuing education for this year.

It’s not too late for you to get me the title of any songs you might want to sing Sunday theme for in our special “you pick musical service. The theme for September is “Opportunity Knocks.” (Our special offering is for the Opportunity Center.) Sunday’s sub-theme is “with a Song to Sing.” Key texts will be from First Chronicles 6, Psalm 150, Colossians and Revelation,

Come, make a joyful noise to God and stay for Patio Hour and a brief Quarterly Business Meeting. Speaking of Patio Hour, we only have one Sunday hosted in the next couple of months. Please let me know if you are willing to help host this important ministry of our congregation. See you Sunday at 10:00 AM for Worship and Communion.

Together, let us strive…to know God’s love!

Pastor Rick
