Emmanuel Lutheran Church Vacation Bible School is in full swing this week for elementary aged children. We have enjoyed welcoming familiar faces as well as some new ones. Our theme this year is “Love, Love(d).” Emmanuel would like to thank the community for participating in and supporting our Vacation Bible School program, and to the Lutherhaven staff for making it a huge success.

For your contemplation: "Love bade me welcome, yet my soul drew back, guilty of dust and sin. But quick-ey'd Love, observing me grow slack from my first entrance in, drew nearer to me, sweetly questioning if I lack'd anything. ‘A guest,’ I answer'd, ‘worthy to be here.’ Love said, ‘You shall be he.’ ‘I, the unkind, the ungrateful? Ah my dear, I cannot look on thee.’ Love took my hand and smiling did reply, ‘Who made the eyes but I?’ ‘Truth, Lord, but I have marr'd them; let my shame go where it doth deserve.’ ‘And know you not,’ says Love, ‘who bore the blame?’ ‘My dear, then I will serve.’ ‘"You must sit down,’ says Love, ‘and taste my meat.’" So I did sit and eat.” George Herbert (1633).

St. Paul's is located at 625 C St. on the edge of EWU campus.

United Church of Christ

In last week’s annual meeting the congregants/members of Cheney UCC resolved to undertake building and grounds repair and enhancements. To volunteer for these various specific tasks involved, under the new by-laws we are test-driving this year, folks will sign up with a council member in the areas you’re skilled in and be called as the appropriate occasion arises. You can receive the names and responsibilities of the Council members to contact and pick up your new color directory of friends and members at church. 

Pastor David Krueger-Duncan will be speaking at the 10 a.m. Sunday worship service and all are invited to attend.  

Child care is provided in the Christian Education building from 9:45-11:15 a.m. School-age children may attend the service with their parents. 

If you haven’t signed your child up for Camp N-Sid-Sen, there are still some spots available in the five-day camps through Aug. 10. Contact Gail Hilton or the UCC church office.  

During the fellowship time after church, friends new and old will chat over refreshments.
