Do you have difficulty holding the hymnal, seeing the print in the bulletin or reading the projection screen? If so, large print inclusive bulletins are available for your convenience. Please ask an usher for a copy. If you try this option, we would appreciate your feedback as to whether you found this helpful.
This summer, during worship, MPLC is returning to the practice of Sharing the Peace before gathering at God’s table for Holy Communion. We urge you to use this time as part
of your own sacred preparation to receive the sacrament by greeting one another in a spirit of true peace and reconciliation. An extended time of fellowship will take place following worship in the Fireside Room and everyone is invited to attend. “So when you are offering your gift at the altar, if you remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar and go; first be reconciled to your brother or sister, and then come offer your gift.” Matthew 5: 23-24
Calendar planning June 30 and July 7: Today and next Sunday, July 7, calendar pages for Aug. 2019—Aug. 2020 will be available on a table in the hall outside the nursery. Please stop by and write in your upcoming meetings, activi- ties or events. Planning ahead helps avoid conflicts in scheduling.
