One benefit of preaching twice a Sunday is that I often notice connections between two far-flung portions of Scripture. For tomorrow morning, I am preparing to preach on Psalm 125, which shows us the spiritual stability of God’s people who live by faith. Our text for the evening (Philippians 4:4-9) is another classic description of that spiritual stability, where we see what should come out of our minds (prayer, not anxiety) and what should go into our minds (“Whatever is true…”).
I’m thankful for these glimpses of Scripture’s wonderful unity, and also for its clear relevance to us as we seek to live in faith today.
Here are this week’s announcements.
The morning service is at 11:00am. Here is the morning order of service. Teens, please meet Pastor Goligher in the fellowship hall after the service.
The evening service is at 5:00pm. Here is the evening order of service.
Prayer Meeting is on Wednesday evening at 7:15pm, on Zoom.

Service at CityTeam: A group from our church is scheduled to volunteer at CityTeam this Saturday afternoon. If you signed up to participate, don’t forget! Any questions should be directed to Scott Porter.
Chloe Goligher will be baptized next Sunday (May 23), durning the morning service. After the service, there will also be a new baby celebration outside under the tent. Plans are being made to provide socially-distancing-acceptable light refreshments. If you wish to contribute to a group gift, please contact Melissa Harvey.
Those who are interested in helping with VBS, please plan to meet after the morning service on May 30. If you won’t be able to join, please reach out to Pastor Goligher in the meantime so that we can start coordinating our plans for this event.
