Seventh Sunday after Pentecost*

Worship at 8:45am and 10:00am

And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone, but by this time the boat, battered by the waves, was far from the land, for the wind was against them. And early in the morning he came walking toward them on the sea. But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out in fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them and said, “Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid.” –Matthew 14:23-27

It’s summer, so let’s go to the sea - the Sea of Galilee, that is! From July 9th-30th we will explore several of the best-known stories of Jesus and his disciples that occur around the Sea of Galilee.

Rev. Woodrow will preach at both services.
