Welcome to the Seventh Sunday after Pentecost!  Worship will be held inside the sanctuary at 10am due to expected thunderstorms.  Please note, all people over the age of two must wear masks regardless of vaccination status. Additionally, there is no virtual coffee hour this Sunday as the event is on pause for July.  

The bulletin for this week, including the readings, may be downloaded by scrolling to the bottom of this post.

This morning's worship is available live on our YouTube channel or on Facebook.  The direct link for YouTube is here: https://youtu.be/Qslz_y8mSL8.  Alternatively, you may check our facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/clcathens.  Once the service has concluded, you can still watch the recording at either of the above sites.

Time with Children has been graciously selected by Chris Snoddy this week.  She writes, "The videos today are based on Ephesians 1: 3-14, which says that God chose us and adopted us as children. So, we have a puppet named Douglas explaining that we are chosen by God, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44tgBmqcV8Q, and the Saddleback Kids song is “Children of God” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EtzyFCHOBQU.

Patricia Cambridge will not be providing us with an improvisation this week; however, please feel free to check our her extensive library of them on her personal YouTube channel found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7muBqRWCDkJKX9C6KPFFuA.
