Larry Sanders, Guest Proclaimer
This Sunday, August 2, Lay Leader Larry Sanders will be our guest proclaimer. Larry will share the message "Open Arms" based on Matthew 5:38-48 and supported by Mark 12:28-31. His focus will include the opening we use every Sunday at the beginning of service, " A life connected to God and a life connected to one another, is the most meaningfully life there."
When this is being said, the gesture of the arms opening up is very symbolic to the horizontal lines of the cross where Jesus is opening his opens arms as he died and demonstrated his love to all. We as United Methodist are known for our "Open Hearst, Open Minds, Open Doors." Let us extend "Open Arms" to all - loving more that just those who we know, care for, and call our friends.
Our time of worship will include welcoming Portia Foden as our Director of Children, Youth, and Family Ministries and gathering around the Table of the Lord as we share Holy Communion.
While our regular Children's Sunday school teachers enjoy a summer break, some Joyous July experiences have been planned.
