Third Sunday After Pentecost

Paraments color: Green

Scripture Readings for June 9, 2024

A house divided against itself cannot stand. Jesus makes this observation in light of charges that he is possessed. He is possessed, not by a demon, but by the Holy Spirit. We who have received the Holy Spirit through baptism have been joined to Christ’s death and resurrection and knit together in the body of Christ. Those with whom we sing and pray this day are Jesus’ family. With them we go forth in peace to do the will of God.

Genesis 3:8-15; Psalm 130; 2 Corinthians 4:13—5:1; Mark 3:20-35

From the Pastor's Desk

Grace and peace to you!

Have you ever experienced God's presence in creation? Have you ever been to a faith based outdoor camp?

Camp Chrysalis was founded in 1950 which means 74 years, many generations of youth have encountered God on that very bluff at camp.

Join us this Sunday as we bless 9 youth and 2 leaders and myself and send us on our way to camp.

See information about how to write a note to our youth while they are at camp. You can also bring letters THIS SUNDAY and get them to Pastor Amanda to give to our youth.

Mark your calendars for August 11th when the youth lead worship and share their camp experience.

Thank you for your support of our youth all year long to make this summer possible!!

God’s peace,

Pastor Amanda
