Weekly Update July 17

This Sunday: These Summer Sundays are an opportunity to be reminded of some of the most well-known stories and images from the Bible.  This Sunday is a time to take a look back at the story of Jesus walking on the water.  Does this image really imply proficiency and competence as it is generally thought of?  Or is there more to this image?  In this season of much rain and this historic era of sea-level rise, what can we learn from the story of Jesus walking on the water? 

Advisors Meeting: The meeting takes place July 21 following Sunday worship. All are welcome!

Theological Orientation Discussions: These discussions were requested as part of reviewing the church mission statement and possibly creating a new mission statement. The next gathering will be Wednesday July 24 beginning with a potluck at 6:30 and a presentation at 7:00. Kim Wells will offer the remarks that she gave to the Religions and Faith interest group at the Academy of Senior Professionals at Eckerd College. The presentation was entitled, “Theological Challenges for Today’s Christian Churches.” There will be a variety of topics for discussion afterward. Upcoming dates for additional gatherings: August 7, 14, and 21. That will conclude the series. All are welcome to participate!

Children’s Ministry:  The church is putting in place a children’s ministry for the rest of the year. If you are interested in being part of this effort, please speak with Kim Wells or one of the advisors. Many thanks!
