SATURDAY NIGHT BASEBALL……….The weather is looking pretty nice for our barbecue and baseball game this Saturday (July 23).  Come to Peace for hamburgers and hot dogs at 5:00.  We will leave shortly after 6:00 for the game.  The Knights play the Victoria HarbourCats at 6:40 pm–not exactly sure what an HarbourCat is, but I guess we will find out Saturday.

Bring a side dish to share at the barbecue–salad or fruit or dessert.  There will be about 50 people attending the barbecue and baseball game.

The special part of Saturday’s event is that we get to spend more time with the staff and camp councilors at Camp Lutherwood.  There should be about 15 to 20 of their staff coming to the barbecue and game.

Here are some ideas of topics that you could talk about with the people from Lutherwood.  Ask about their focus on Creation Awareness.  Much time is given at Lutherwood to explore the creek that runs through the camp and learning about the different vegetation.  You could ask, “How does this exploration assist campers in becoming better stewards of God’s creation?”

Ask about what a regular day looks like at camp.  Lutherwood takes time each day for service activities, games and devotions.  Wonderful crafts are planned.  You could ask, “How have the activities built healthier relationships with others and with God?”

Share too about yourself!  We want campers to know more about what life is like in Oregon!

WELCOME OF NEW MEMBERS………..This Sunday we are welcoming eight new members at Peace!  After worship we will be celebrating with cake and refreshments.

BAND IN THE PARK.…………..There is music playing in the Philomath City Park tonight.  Magic Mama starts playing at 6 pm under the gazebo.  The summer concert series is an intentional effort to build community relationships.

LORD’S PRAYER………….As you prepare for worship this Sunday, be thinking about the Lord’s Prayer.  Is there a portion of the Lord’s Prayer that speaks to a challenge or need that you have right now?  The good news is that not only does Jesus invite us to pray, but also gives us the very words we need to pray.  See you Sunday!  Adult Bible Study at 8:30 with worship to follow at 9:30.
