Such a Dorcas

 

Happy 8th Sunday of Pentecost!

As we worship this Sunday in-person and online, our service will be built around Dorcas – or Tabitha if you prefer.  As Peter is making his rounds in the same direction Philip went earlier in Acts, he heals two people and teaches us a lot about how we can be effective and faithful disciples.  Both Aenas and Dorcas are interesting scriptural lessons in how Peter’s faith can be ours.  Let’s open our hearts, our minds, and our Bibles as we worship on Sunday!

 

Sunday’s Online Service—If you log in to your Google/YouTube account about 10-15 minutes early, you will be able to easily access the chat and fellowship through the YouTube premier page both before and during the service. Find the premier page on our YouTube channel at: 7/26/20 Online Service.  The premier page will be active from the moment the video is uploaded, so you can practice any time this weekend!

Sunday’s In-Person Service – At 8am we will worship in the church courtyard (between the Fellowship Hall and the Sanctuary).  Worshipers are asked to bring their own chairs or picnic blankets, face coverings, hand sanitizer, and Communion Elements (bread & grape juice) to each service.  We will have communion at every 8am service.

We have introductions to both our SPKidz Church and iClub lessons on our YouTube channel. After you watch the introductions to the lesson, be sure to download the packet with discussion questions and activities to do at home!

This week we have a special lesson and learning for our iClub at 9:45am on Sundays, just as we would if we were together!  You will be able to access this through Zoom, which is an online conferencing tool. Contact Kraig by email for directions on how to access this.
