Dear Cedar Grove UMC family,
In worship on Sunday, we’ll continue our sermon series Fishing in the Gospels with a sermon entitled “Fishing for People.” We’ll look at Matthew 4:17-21, where Jesus called his first disciples from a life of professional fishing, to become fishers of people. We'll consider the movement Jesus was launching, what he meant by “fishing for people,” and discover a few fishing tips for how to, and how not to, fish for people. Please plan to join us for worship at 10:30 a.m. Sunday – and bring a friend with you!
On Saturday, we will join with our brothers and sisters at Eno Presbyterian at 4 p.m. for our Community Hot Dog Cookout and Ice Cream Social. Please plan to join us!
Vacation Bible School is scheduled for 7-8:30 p.m. Thursday, July 24 and Friday, July 25 and 9-11 a.m. Saturday, July 26. Our student intern Kevin Rose is coordinating VBS for us. We will be using materials from the Society of St. Andrew with the theme, “Abundance Orchard.” Anyone willing to help with VBS, please contact Kevin or me.
We collect canned fruit and other non-perishable items to support the food pantry at OCIM throughout the year. Please remember to bring your OCIM offerings each week as a way of reaching out to brothers and sisters around us.
