Worship for Sunday, July 4, 2021 (Book 1; Independence Day)

For Sunday, July 4, Pastor Park Hunter preaches “The Book of You,” based on Psalm 139:13-18. Matthew, Luke, John, James, Peter… books in the Bible. But the story of God’s love goes on, and we’re still writing it today. If someone wrote the Book of You, what would we learn about how you’ve responded to the love of Jesus Christ?. This is the first in our July series, “The Book of You.”

Jessica Gobel leads the Kid’s Message; then younger kids can join her for Children’s Church. During the God Moment, we’ll hear about La Crosse Jail Ministry, one of our mission outreaches. We’ll recognize Independence Day in song and prayer.

We celebrate open communion during this service. All are welcome to participate! Please have something to eat and drink prepared to represent Christ – bread and grape juice or wine are traditional. Regular and gluten-free communion cups are available at church.

Sandy Koster, Doug Huggett, Kimberly & Jeff Wadewitz, Kathi Beane, and Ron Adams lead hymns at the 8:30a Classic service. Zoe and Melissa de Boer, Pam Klinger, and Grace Hoskin lead music at the 11:00a Praise service.
