Our God Will Not Be Contained

We are continuing our exploration of the story of David this Sunday by looking at 1 Samuel 7:1-14a. Here, David decides to build God a house, but God informs David that God prefers movement and fluidity and informs David that God will build David a house instead. We see that our God is one who defies boxes and turns tables on us all the time! Come join us for a joyful time to worship and learn about God!

Apologies for the late post!

CHURCH HAPPENINGS

Help feed the Homeless at the Day Shelter (New Hope UMC, Edgewood) on the 3rd FRIDAY (MT) and 4th MONDAY (DC) of each month Next: August 27 (DC). We usually meet at each church around 11ish. We need people to make, deliver, and serve food.

Bible Study will start up again this fall. In worship at the end of August, we will send out a sign up sheet to see what times and dates work for folks as well as what topics people are interested in. If you have a particular interest, please let Shannon know!

September and October are going to be busy months of worship together! Pray for us, and get excited!

Weekly Prayer:

O Lord, Thou art on the sandbanks

as well as in the midst of the current;

I bow to Thee.

Thou art in the little pebbles

as well as in the calm expanse of the sea;

I bow to Thee.

O all-pervading Lord,

Thou art in the barren soil

and in the crowded places;

I bow to Thee.

(From Earth Prayers from Around the World)
