Attached is the bulletin for this coming Sunday, the 10th Sunday after Pentecost.  Please note that, due to a technical glitch, the bulletin shows “A Mighty Fortress is our God” as this week’s recessional (it was last week’s).  And, “Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus” shows as a 4th communion hymn, instead of this week’s recessional.  The printed bulletin and slides on Sunday will have the correct order, but in order to get this to those who like to receive an electronic copy, we had to go with the errors this time only.  010 After Pentecost 08-02-2015

July 29, 1775, was the commissioning of the first military chaplain.  As they commemorate their anniversary, here is a prayer that we can pray for all those serving as military chaplains around the world, (a good number of whom were with us on July 12).

From the Book of Common Prayer 1928 –
O LORD God of Hosts, stretch forth, we pray thee, thine almighty arm to strengthen and protect the military of our country; Support them in the day of battle, and in the time of peace keep them safe from all evil; endue them with courage and loyalty; and grant that in all things they may serve without reproach; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer Request

Please pray for David Kinder and Jerry Carder, both of whom are going through some real difficulties and need our prayer support.  Thanks!

O God, whose fatherly care reaches to the uttermost parts of the earth; We pray that you would graciously  behold and bless David and Jerry whom we love, for whom we offer these prayers.  We ask that you would manifest your love for them in very definite ways, that they would have a revelation of your nearness to them.  Defend them from all dangers of soul and body; and grant that both they and we, drawing nearer to you, may be bound together by your love in the communion of thy Holy Spirit, and in the fellowship of your saints; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

From Bp. Dan —

Today Marianne saw a doctor at Sarah Cannon Research Institute in Nashville. Her Oncologist suggested this after a ct scan detected 2 spots near her lungs, and after all the doctors with whom he consulted agreed that it wasn’t necessary to biopsy the spots. The doctor at Sarah Cannon presented a clinical trial drug that may effectively treat her cancer. He explained that previous testing shows a genetic mutation in her cancer cells, and at Sarah Canon they are testing a drug that targets that specific mutated cell. The treatment involves taking an oral medication twice a day with ct scans every 8 weeks to determine its effectiveness. We will let you know when the treatment begins, and we ask for your continued prayers that God will use this to heal Marianne.

Father, I pray in the mighty Name of Jesus that You would comfort and relieve Marianne during this course of treatment.  I ask for peace and trust in Your working in her life and I ask that You would comfort our Bishop  as he cares for his wife.    I pray that by the power of Your Holy Spirit You would heal Marianne.  Your Word tells us that You are a sun and a shield and I pray that You would shield her from any harmful side effects of medication, that the medicine would work directly on the problem and that there would be an outcome of hope and healing which would bring glory to the Name of Your Son, in whose Name I pray.  Amen

School Supply Sunday!

School Supplies

This coming Sunday is the last day to bring in school supplies for the Great School Supply Distribution in which the Riverside churches are cooperating with the Mad River School Board.  Bring your supplies Sunday so that they can be blessed and prayed over before being taken to the Fire Department for sorting and distribution.  If you would prefer, you can give a check made payable to Mad River Schools and marked “School Supplies”.  Thank you so very much for your generous hearts.  We live in a community filled with families who do not enjoy the blessings which some of us take for granted.  Working together with other churches is an awesome way to demonstrate the love of God to so many!
