July 8 Pastor’s Pen
What a wonderful worship service this past Sunday. We celebrated the Lord’s Supper together as a family, rejoiced with Swede and Lynnet Johnson on their 50th anniversary and worshiped with Jim Owen as our new Director of Music Ministries. It was a joyous occasion and this Sunday will be a continuation of that same joy and excitement as we celebrate the baptism of Orion Alexander Beavers and later in the afternoon have my Ordination and Installation service.
Preview for this Sunday
This Sunday we will celebrate the sacrament of baptism and remember our own baptism. There also will be specific questions that we will ask the congregation and important questions for all the children who will be friends with Orion.
In the sermon we will talk about the meaning behind baptism and “Getting Wet”. And if you pay close attention you will find out if Pastor Ryan has a tattoo! You also might get a chance to see Ryan’s mom crying…..
Along with the sermon we will continue our pattern of laughing together, lifting our concerns up in prayer, and worshipping God through our songs and actions.  We hope you can join us at 9:45 a.m. on Sunday.
May God continue to bless us all,
Pastor Ryan
We just received word that long-time member Elena Vaughan passed away yesterday, July 7.  We will notify the congregation of the funeral arrangements after the family has made the arrangements.  Please pray for the Vaughan family during this time of transition and loss.
This Sunday after worship the Fellowship Time will be held downstairs in the Fellowship Hall so that the Westminster Room can be set up for the Ordination. Please join us downstairs for a time of frivolity, fun and friends.
The Ordination and Installation service for Ryan happens at 4:00 pm this Sunday at the church. Childcare is available downstairs for our younger friends.  Join us for a beautiful celebratory service and for the reception afterwards.
IT’S HAPPENED!!!!!  Ryan and Andy are able to move into their new house.  If you are able please join them at 9:00 am on Friday, July 9th at Conway Storage, 2094 Fochtman Industrial Drive to help load the truck. If you’re able to come later plan on showing up at our new house at 1125 Klondike in Petoskey. Thanks for your prayers and support over these past crazy weeks!
