Sunday, June 26, 2022 Third Sunday after Pentecost
10:00 am – Worship with Holy Communion
Jesus has finished his ministry in Galilee of healing and teaching and proclaiming the good news of God’s love for all people, and now he invites us to follow him to Jerusalem and learn what being his disciple means. It begins when “We Are Baptized in Christ Jesus.” Being “baptized in his death” isn’t all roses and rainbows, but by the aid of the Holy Spirit whom we invoke singing “Gracious Spirit, … Come,” we can “Lift High the Cross” and, like Jesus, “the love of God proclaim.”
We give thanks for those assisting with Sunday's worship
Pastor - Rev. Anna Anderson; Assisting Minister - Shelley Bennett; Communion Assistant - Marianne Hawn; Altar Guild - Marilyn Falksen; Organist - Eric Sparks; Videographer - Gerry Fuller; Hospitality Team - Shelley Bennett, Gerry Fuller, Eric Heigis, and Kevin Letterly.
Installation of Advent Leaders
Sunday we will install our leadership for 2022-2023. We give thanks to God for the fine leadership and dedicated leadership called up from among our gifted Advent people. These new leaders and ministry chairs/secretaries are asked to gather for a short meeting following worship.

Call Committee Report. The committee reported that they are moving forward with a candidate whom they plan to present to the Council in July. If the Council concurs, a congregational social meeting with the candidate will be held in August followed by a congregational meeting where everyone will be able to vote on calling that person as Advent’s new pastor and on whatever changes to the budget are needed for that person’s compensation package.
