Cheney Congregational Church

It was with great joy that we welcomed our new pastor, Rev. Matt Goodale and his wife Meghan on July 7.

Goodale will begin a new series, “A Surprising Family of Faith,” on July 14 at 10 a.m., where he will look at how all of us encounter God in unique ways. Our faith journeys may look different, but they are all embraced by God, who uses each of our stories to reveal a different texture, color or shade of God’s love for us all.

He will preach this week on Jacob, who revealed through his encounter with God that we worship a God whose love is vast enough to embrace our wrestling and questioning.

The “Lunch Bunch” will meet at noon on Thursday, July 11, and the communications team at 1 p.m. Men’s breakfast is at 7:45 a.m., Sunday, July 14, at Cheney Marketplace. The council will meet at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, July 15.

Harvey Zacker will present “The Ancient Art of Flintknapping,” a demonstration and display of finished stone tools used by Native Americans for survival, on Wednesday, July 24, at 7 p.m. It’s free and open to the public at 423 N. 6th St.

For your contemplation: “I hear America singing, the varied carols I hear; those of the mechanics each one singing his, as it should be, blithe and strong; the carpenter singing his, as he measures his plank or beam, the mason singing his, as he makes ready for work, or leaves off work; the boatman singing what belongs to him in his boat, the deckhand singing on the steamboat deck; the shoemaker singing as he sits on his bench-the hatter singing as he stands; the wood-cutter’s song-the ploughboy’s, on his way in the morning, or at the noon intermission, or at sundown; the delicious singing of the mother.-.or of the young wife at work - or of the girl sewing or washing - each singing what belongs to her, and to none else; the day what belongs to the day - at night, the party of young fellows, robust, friendly, singing, with open mouths, their strong melodious songs.” Walt Whitman
