The Second Sunday after Pentecost
Weekday Liturgies The congregation is invited to attend Evening Prayer on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday at 5:30 p.m. in the Church; the midweek Eucharist held on Wednesdays at 12:15 p.m. in Saint Mary’s Chapel.
Adult Forum: 9:00 a.m. in Saint Mary’s Chapel. Elijah contrasts the power of YHWH and Baal. The Canaanite nature god cannot provide food, but in the midst of famine, YHWH’s prophet is miraculously fed, and he can miraculously feeds others. Elisha’s political intrigue, palace coup – it is all there and you should be too!
VBS Planning Meeting: There will be a second planning session for Vacation Bible School today after the 10:15 service in Saint Mary’s Chapel. If you have some opinions about how VBS should operate, or are curious about what is involved in this ministry of the church, please come and be part of the discussion.

Personal Blessings: We need your help to increase our inventory of Personal Blessings items. A part of our ministry for the Community Cafe’ is providing personal hygiene products for our guests. When we first started this Outreach we thought travel size items would be best, but over the years we now realize the need is for full-size. This helps them last month to month. We could use the following items: Toothpaste-4 oz or larger; Toothbrush - adult and children; Shampoo-18 oz; Durable disposable razors; Shaving cream - 6-12 oz; Bath soap-3 oz bars. The Dollar Tree, Dollar General, and Walmart are suggested shopping places. Perhaps you would prefer not to shop and would like to make a monetary contribution. If giving a check, please write “Personal Blessings” in the memo section. For cash donations place your money in an envelope marked “Personal Blessing”. Please contact Cathy Bushey if you have further questions at 301-992-8444. Any help you can give will be appreciated by those attending our monthly Community Cafe’.
Bester School Needs: Bester School continues to need our help in providing underwear for its young children.
