The spectacular flowers in the sanctuary today were cut, arranged and presented to the glory of God by Ann and Claude Sullivan in loving memory of their parents.
A highlight of this week’s service was a video contribution by Betty Fisher along with her daughter Caroline and grandson Connor. In an effort to let our worshippers “see” one another and feel a little less isolated during these difficult times, we have begun to ask willing members to participate in the service from home. As our inaugural contributors, Betty, Caroline and Connor gave the Call to Worship, performed the Passing of the Peace, and offered the Prayer of Confession. Thank you so much, Betty and family!
The prerecorded Prelude was a medley of “Just a Closer Walk With Thee” and “When the Saints Go Marching In,” performed by Garrett Whipkey on saxophone and Angie Jenkins on piano. As a special musical offering, Chancel Choir intern Wesley Walker, baritone, sang Moses Hogan’s arrangement of “He’s Got the Whole World In His Hands” accompanied by Angie on piano. The Prelude was taken from our October 8, 2017 worship service, and Wesley’s solo from the October 6, 2019 service.
Pastor Curtis’ sermon was titled “It’s Still a Great Mystery” based on Scripture readings from Matthew 13:31-32 and 44-46. Angie Jenkins played the Benediction hymn, “God Be With You Til We Meet Again” and the Postlude, “Gavotte” by Samuel Wesley on the pipe organ.
A big thank-you as always to Scott McDuff, our unflagging worship service videographer and editor.
