LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITY Last Sunday, the sermon reflected on the word “provoke” used in scripture. How is God provoking you to draw ever more closely to Him and help build up the Kingdom here on earth? Perhaps God is nudging you to consider being a part of the leadership team at church? We are looking for one or two more Bishop Committee members, including a Bishop’s Warden. The commitment is for three years and we meet every third Sunday from 11:45-1 p.m., more or less. We need people who are excited about the church and want to discern our future. Please talk with Vicar Corinne if you are interested.

SUNDAY, JULY 1 HEALING SUNDAY Our Gospel this Sunday includes two stories of healing. The Book of Common Prayer, page 861, defines healing or unction as “the rite of anointing of the sick with oil, or the laying on of hands, by which God’s grace is given for the healing of spirit, mind and body.” This Sunday, Pastor Corinne will share a story of her own healing and after worship, she will offer healing to anyone who is in need of physical, mental or spiritual healing. This will kick off a new healing ministry at our church and monthly healing will now be offered each first Sunday. We are blessed to have a couple parishioners who have been healing ministers in the past. If you are interested in the healing ministry, please sign up in the hallway and Pastor Corinne will contact you. To grow and ground this ministry, we will be reading and reflecting on a book together.
