Dear Friend,

Come now and see for yourselves.
God is alive in our midst and begins life anew even among us.
You will see the very nature of God in those gathered around you.
Get ready to stand firm, to stand on the Rock that is Jesus Christ.
From there we will feel the confidence of those who follow the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
READINGS:
Jesus encourages his disciples to trust in him and not be troubled, for he is the way to God and God is revealed and known in him.
Prayer
God Who Sees, long ago Hagar was in the wilderness, alone and afraid, and You took notice of her. She called You God Who Sees, and we know now in our loneliness, in our fear, You see us. You know what we are feeling-our frustration, our anger, our dejection, our exhaustion. You know what we are going through, and You are with us. God Who Sees, help us to envision beyond where we are now, and to draw closer to You.
Help us to know one another more fully by caring for each other’s needs. God Who Sees, help us to see those that we might have forgotten, those that we are missing-the people who sleep outside, the families who struggle to put food on the table, the seniors who are lonely. Help us to remember we are called by You to love one another. God Who Sees, help us to see with our hearts, to love all of Your children. Amen.
Cabinet Spring Worship
On Sunday, you will be watching our Bishop Sally Dyck preaching and her cabinet leading worship. This worship experience was set to give clergy during the month of May and 3 days sabbatical.
As I’m giving our staff and music team a “break” for the 4 of July, I felt it is appropriate for the congregation to watch this one.  Hope and pray you will enjoy it.
Wishing all a blessed 4 of July.
We will be back with you on Sunday, July 12 as we send forth Scott, Jessica, and Spencer.
Note
On Tuesday, June 30 our Church Council adopted our Re-Open plan and protocols. After July 6 there will be email, official letter and a video sharing the details of the reopening. Please stay tuned.
