Have you traveled to visit relatives this summer? Found yourself in an unfamiliar environment? Fallen in love? Started a new job? Attended any weddings? Been puzzled or troubled by the way people conduct themselves? If so, you have something in common with Jacob.
Son of Isaac and Rebekah, grandson of Abraham and Sarah, Jacob is a central figure in the story of the Hebrew people. The twists and turns and questions and outcomes of his life are recounted in Genesis 25-35. This Sunday we will focus on Genesis 29:15-28, which describes how Jacob made a strong first impression, took up life in a new place, and managed to greatly complicate his personal life. April’s sermon, “A Homecoming and Two Weddings” will explore the guiding arc of the Genesis saga and of our own lives.
July 30 is a fifth and final Sunday of the month. Thus, morning worshippers can look forward to donut holes being served along with the coffee in the patio, and 3rd Service folks can plan to enjoy Taco Night beginning at 6:30 pm. The suggested donation for enjoying the taco buffet is $5 per person or $15 per family.
See you at church!
