Week of June 4, 2023

Today in Worship: Holy Trinity SundayGen. 1:1–2:4; Acts 2:14a, 22–36; Matt. 28:16–20 • On Holy Trinity Sunday we ponder the mystery of how He has revealed Himself as the “Three-in-One” (Triune) God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Ours is the living God; gracious and merciful; all-powerful and eternal; with a love for all people beyond what we could ever imagine or deserve. We worship Him and devote ourselves to Him with all that we are. Knowing this about God doesn’t just lead us to a richer understanding of what God is like, but we also recognize how God has been active in meeting our greatest need through Jesus. And our gracious, ever-living God, continues to work today as He has given us His Spirit and included us in His mission to connect others to Jesus in their time of need.
We welcome Rev. Dr. Rick Armstrong as he proclaims God’s Word today. Pastor Ken and Peg are traveling as he does a renewal of vows ceremony.

Bible Classes
Adult Sunday Morning Bible Class at 10:00 am • The class is led by Jim Essig. We are looking at the Gospel of Luke. Classes are in the Music Room during our 10:00 am Education Hour, between the 9 am & 11 am worship services.
SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR AGE 4 – GRADE 5: Foundations of Faith • Kids will make crafts, play games, and learn the basic truths about God using both Old Testament and New Testament stories. Kids will walk away from each class with a new “God is…” statement (i.e. “God is powerful” or “God is kind”) and what it means that we are God’s people. Sunday School meets upstairs in the Family Life Center classrooms from 10:00-10:45 on Sunday mornings.
“Kid Video” every week: Did you know that DCE Eric Gerken produces a weekly kid video that ties into the Foundations of Faith lesson? Great for kids, families, and adults. The video is posted weekly to our Facebook and YouTube channels. (Tip: start a faith-conversation with your kids or grandkids using that video as a starting place.)
YOUTH SUNDAY BIBLE CLASS (6th-12th) • “Word One Bible Studies” – a mixture of discussion and experiential learning – come check it out – in the far, upstairs classroom in the Family Life Center from 10:00am-10:45am.
The Mid-week Bible Class will be closed for summer for the month of June – Mid July.

Special: God, You have revealed Yourself to us clearly in Your word as our Creator, Redeemer, and One who sets us apart for Your purposes. Hold us close with Your power as we grow in Your amazing grace every day. Use us in incredible ways to serve others in Your name, sharing Your boundless love. •  Bless our Vacation Bible School as we seek to touch every heart with the love of Jesus. • We ask that the Lord would send His guardian angels to watch over all those who travel during the weeks ahead. We ask the Lord to be with President Biden, members of Congress, and the Supreme Court, as well as all state and local leaders. • We ask the Lord to watch over and keep our first responders safe.

For those in the military or deployed: We pray for those who serve our nation in the armed services and for those who are deployed, especially those connected with our PoP/PdeP family: Kyle Holysz, Matthew Rojas, Amanda S, Greg S, Geoffrey W.
