You remember Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones, right? This Communion Sunday at 10am, Rev. Jim Longsworth gets the title for his sermon from the Stones hit, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want.” And Edna Duffy offers her liturgical dance interpretation of the contemporary spiritual, “I Love the Lord.”
You are invited to the communion table whether a member or not of this or any church.
During the next two weeks of construction, worship in our Great Hall will be accessible in only two ways. For all persons without mobility issues, please enter through the lower E. 107th entrance and take the steps down to the Great Hall. The stairways and the east doors closest to MLK Drive are closed during this period, due to construction. Those with mobility challenges will need to enter through the handicap door off the parking lot and take the elevator down to the Great Hall level. And those who park on (either side of) MLK will need to use the handicap entrance and elevator as well.
During August, children are invited to attend worship with their families; activity packets will be available. Jr. and Sr. Youth join us in worship as well.
Photos of the chancel reconstruction in the Sanctuary will continue to be displayed on the TV monitor in the Great Hall.
A reminder that a service to celebrate the life of Carol Crumbaker will be held this Saturday at 11am in the Great Hall. Chancel Choir members have been asked by the family to sing; please be a part of this memorial as you can.
Also, if you haven’t yet brought in school supplies for teachers to distribute as needed to the students in our nearby, newly-adopted Cleveland school, Mary B. Martin Elementary, please consider doing so this Sunday. School starts August 13, so your timely gift of supplies would be greatly appreciated. Call the church office or stop by the school display in the gym for specific suggestions.
Be open to God’s message for you as you join our growing family of faith in worship this Sunday. And while you’re at it, bring someone with you.
Church parking for visitors and the mobility-challenged is available in our north lot. Parking is also available in the Judson lot across from the church, and on Parklane, E. 107th, both sides of MLK Drive and in the Cleveland Library lot south on E. 107th.
