Sunday, July 18: The Eighth Sunday after Pentecost

We were blessed this Sunday morning to have Cameron Nixon, bagpiper, with us to provide our Prelude, “Hyfrydol” by Rowland Prichard.

It was a joy to have our Chancel Choir back in the choir loft after an absence of over a year.

Pastor Curtis Fussell gave the Welcome, Opening LItany, Call to Confession and Assurance of God’s Grace.

Pastor Emily Wilmarth gave the Children’s Moment.

Emily unwrapped a gift box to demonstrate the greatest gift we can receive: God’s grace.

The Chancel Choir joyfully sang out “With a Voice of Singing” by Martin Shaw.

The Chancel Choir also sang a beautifully contemplative rendition of “Amazing Grace” in response to the sermon.

Organist Angie Jenkins accompanied the choir, and played Carol Tornquist’s “Hymn Medly” as the Offertory and “Voluntary on Engelberg” by Charles Stanford as Postlude.

Pastor Curtis preached on the gift of God’s grace for all, regardless of our deserving, based on a reading of Ephesians 2:1-10.
Curtis gave the Charge and Benediction, with an invitation to lunch!

Following the worship service we were treated to a congregational luncheon prepared by Marty Rosenfield and the Congregational Care committee.
