Water You Doing?! (Sunday, 7 August 2011)

Thanks for stopping by the Deer Creek Charge Online! During these last few weeks of summer, we hope that you are getting the rest and relaxation you need. We miss many of our regular attendees during the summer months as folks travel, but worship is still alive and well here. There’s still plenty of room for you to join us too! As we look towards the fall and a new school year, it’s the perfect time to start new habits and join us for worship! We have something for all ages from the little ones all the way up! And if you don’t see something that you would like, tell us and start it! We’re always looking for new ministries and opportunities to serve our communities, the world and our congregation. Be on the lookout for ways to get involved…we have a place for you!

This Sunday, during worship, we are taking a look at Matthew 14:22-33, where Jesus and Peter walk on water. This is a miracle you won’t want to miss! Rumor has it that our pastor has pictures of a lot of people walking on water…how is this possible?? Come and find out as we explore what it means to trust God even in uncertain times and circumstances. We’re starting to think about and pray about the future direction of our churches. Have you ever wanted to help shape a church from the ground up? Well, we will be imagining what church could look like in Harford County in the next few years. This is your chance to help shape this! Come join us to find out how!

This week we will also be celebrating Holy Communion. Check out our Worship section for more details on this. All people who earnestly confess their sins (the stuff that separates us from a good relationship with God), and seek to grow in love and fellowship with Jesus Christ are welcome at God’s table. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us or see the pastor before/after worship.

Also…mark your calendars…Sunday, 28 August (that’s in 3 weeks), we will be having a BIG back-to-school kids’ time during worship! Check out the announcemnts below, and stay tuned for a flyer to be posted in the next week or so. ALL are welcome!

Announcements:

Don’t forget the on-going food drives at both Deer Creek andMt.Tabor! Even when we go away for the summer, hunger does not go away. Please remember to bring in your non-perishable items.

Mark Your Calendars:

It’s hard to believe that school begins in a few weeks! Be sure to come out to worship on Sunday, August 28th for a Backpack and Bus Blessing! We will say a special prayer for all of our students, teachers, schools, buses, bus drivers, and parents. Bring your backpack, your bus, or any other “tool of the trade.”

Annual Charge Conference: Sunday, October 30th at 12:30pm at Deer Creek (MT attends). More details will be coming, as will several meetings. Be thinking and praying for ways in which you can serve God through your congregation.

Worship Fun Fact! The communion liturgy (the words said before the pastor breaks the bread and lifts the cup), is actually a prayer directed towards God. It is modeled after the ancient Jewish prayer style where people would first recount the acts of God to remind God of God’s faithfulness throughout history and to continue to be faithful today. Listen for this today. Can you pick out the prayer language?
