In this week’s reading we meet Mary and Martha. These two sisters receive and welcome Jesus into their home. But while Mary is fawning over Jesus’s every word, Martha is left in the kitchen to do all of the work. She asks Jesus to ask Mary to help her. Jesus’s response may surprise you. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on Mary and Martha and finding balance between work and wonder.
On Sunday, July 21st we will have an all-church barbecue, so start thinking: baked beans, potato salad, pasta salad, watermelon and other fresh fruits, cakes, brownies, home-made ice cream, and more!

Food is available nearby, beer is optional, openness to good conversation a must.

1 Kings 9:1-15a
The sounds of summer are in full swing – barbecues, splashing in pools and lakes, kids running around the neighborhoods, crackling of campfires. In the midst of the start of summer, we hear the story of Elijah seeking God’s presence on a mountainside. Elijah, who has experienced God in big and loud ways, now hears God in an unexpected way- in the sound of silence. How do we make space to hear God in obvious and unexpected ways? Join us this Sunday as Rev. Mollie preaches on the sounds of silence and the substance we find in the pause.

Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31
In this week’s reading from Proverbs, we hear a new voice—Woman Wisdom! She stakes her claim at the busiest intersection in town and shouts to the passers-by how she was present with God before creation began. What might Woman Wisdom have to say to us? What might she implore us to shout at the busiest intersections in town? Join us this Sunday as Pastor Curt preaches on bold proclamation and how participating in PrideFest is a critical part of our witness to God’s unconditional love.
