THIRD SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST WORSHIP at First CHristian Church...
Worship services at First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) of Yates Center have followed a traditional format, and in special seasons of the church year, we have reflected on and celebrated accordingly. As the congregation ceases weekly Sunday worship in the beautiful building at 201 South Main following the worship on April 30, our spiritual endeavors will continue, at least through the summer as core decisions are reached and enacted. We will post our monthly bulletins, going forward, and the bulletin for July 16 is below.
As we always do, we will gratefully partake of the LORD's Table at our July worship service. Traditional hymns, scripture readings, and prayer will encourage our continual awareness of God's steadfast love and our grateful response. As children of God, we will each and together continue to celebrate the constant love and care of our heavenly father and the miracle of faith and love that is Jesus Christ, who - from the moment of his birth - made an immeasurable impact on the world. His proclamation, "I am the light of the world," (John 8:12 and 9:5) is a point of guidance for all who seek to follow him and learn from his teachings.
It is the season of Pentecost, and we continue to celebrate the gifts of the Holy Spirit. As summer continues, we pray for all who are enjoying the sunny weather or who are suffering in the oppressive heat. We remember to check on family, friends, and neighbors and stand ready to assist when needed. Our prayers are always needed.
"My Kingdom is not an earthly kingdom. If it were, my followers would fight to keep me from being handed over to the Jewish leaders. But my Kingdom is not of this world." -John 18:36
The bulletin from the service in July is posted below. May it inspire and bless you.
