This Week at Old South Haven June 7, 2019
Remember to Invite a Friend and join us for an afternoon of music tomorrow
Gifts of the Spirit—
A long-standing Pentecost custom in many churches is the wearing of red to worship. But the gift of the Spirit in our lives is about so much more than the fiery moment recorded in the book of Acts. As Paul reminds the Corinthian community -- "Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good." So I invite you this Sunday to bring something that symbolizes your gift of the Spirit. Something that speaks to how you through that gift build up the common good. Oh, and go ahead and wear red too.
Pentecost Offering—Sunday "When we give, young adults engage in a year of service while discerning how best to love God and neighbor, through the Young
Adult Volunteer program. When we give, our congregation joins with others in shaping the education provided as public schools, through the 'Educate a Child, Transform
the World,' national initiative. As Presbyterians we believe that every child deserves access to high-quality education. When we give, more than 5,000 youth gather at
the Presbyterian Youth Triennium to worship, learn, and serve together.
Plumb Line Report—
On Thursday, June 6th, the final draft of the Plumb Line Team's report was emailed or sent by USPS to all people in our most recent directory. On Sunday, June 16th,
immediately following worship we will take time to address questions, comments and concerns
about the report. To facilitate that conversation, we are asking you to submit them to Pastor Karen by June 14th via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, USPS at 200 Suydam Ln,
Bayport, NY 11705 or hand them to her at church.
The Church School (All Church) Picnic is next Sunday. Sandwiches will be provided. Please bring a salad or a desert to share.
