Randy and I are very much looking forward to our vacation/anniversary celebration in August. While we are gone, you will be hearing in worship from several of our ministry partners in the community.
On August 4 our friend, Katie Eccles, married to an Episcopal priest, will bring the message and talk about Magdalene House Chicago. I am on the board of Magdalene House Chicago and am delighted that Katie will be here with you August 4.
On August 11, Colleen Sutkus from Sarah's Inn will be with you to bring the message and share about their ministry. We have supported Sarah's Inn for a number of years.
On August 18, Rev. Ed Heistand will bring the message about Global Missions and ministry. We support global missions through our apportionments, our support for a missionary in Honduras, and through special collections and projects (like last year's well project.) If you have wondered why we do this, or want to learn more, be sure to come on August 18!
On August 25 we will be back with me in the pulpit, but Housing Forward will be our focus and they will have a speaker in our service for a brief presentation of their ministry, and will be available afterwards for conversation. We will also hear from John Alger, our ever-faithful coordinator for set-up for PADS on Thursdays.
