Grace Notes – 07/31/19

“On Earth as it is In Heaven” Sermon Series
Each week we say the words “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” during the Lord’s Prayer, but what exactly does this mean? As Christians, we are called to seek God’s kingdom, but we are also called to live in a world filled with idols, temptations and human-made institutions. This tension, this both/and, is something that our Bible, our Methodist tradition, and our own faith journeys attempt to wrestle with and understand more deeply. Join us this Sunday in worship as we explore what it means to walk, live and love on earth as it is in heaven by sharing in the Lord’s Supper and focusing on the prophetic words of Hosea.
HELP NEEDED:  Flowers for altar of new sermon series!
The worship committee is hoping to get a few gardeners who would be willing to share their flowers for the altar for our sermon series throughout August! If you are willing or able to help, please reach out for more information to Nancy Maier at silverbelle100@sbcglobal.net or Pastor Maddie at maddie@gracewinfield.com.
