Do Not Fear, Only Believe

This week is a busy one for the Deer Creek Charge! We welcome our new pastor, Shannon Sullivan, who will give a message based on Mark 5: 21-43, in which Jesus heals a woman who has bled for twelve years, and he brings a twelve-year-old girl back to life. It is a story about courage in the face of fear, particularly in the face of fears over transitions. We will be celebrating Holy Communion together and worship will be followed by a potluck! Come hungry!

We also give thanks Pastor Bonnie McCubbin’s service to our charge, and we pray for her and her congregations as she begins her appointment to the Patapsco-Lodge Forest Cooperative Parish.

Celebrate the Fourth of July this Week by Keeping Our Nation in your Prayers:

Lord God Almighty, you have made all the peoples of the earth for your glory, to serve you in freedom and in peace: Give to the people of our country a zeal for justice and the strength of forbearance, that we may use our liberty in accordance with your gracious will; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. (Book of Common Prayer p. 253)
