Quote & Prayer of the Week

“Americans may not only pay tribute to our honored dead but also unite in prayer for success in our search for a just and lasting peace.” —John F. Kennedy,


Thank you that in our nation today, we are free to worship. We are free to pray. We are free to read your Word.  We are free to speak.  We are free to share. For this, we are incredibly grateful. Yet, we understand how quickly these freedoms can be taken away. Give us an increased awareness of the spiritual battle we’re in. Help us to stand strong in you and for your purposes. Amen.


Loving God we lift up to you…

Support the Youth on the Mission Trip 

We are inching closer to departing to Puerto Rico don't forget to support the youth's fund drive they have opportunities to buy dinner, and help pay for transportation or other items that will be needed on the trip. You connect with Josh Hay to find out what the needs are. You can email him at


Quilts and Old Photos: Do you have old family photos or an heirloom quilt you’d like to have on display as we celebrate our Sesquicentennial in August? The kiosk at the back of the church already contains photos from previous historical celebrations, but we’ll be adding more as we move through the summer months. We’ll make copies of these precious photos and return them to you. See Linda Pottenger or Julie Bailey for more details. Your ancestors may not have settled in Douglas County before or since statehood, but their lives somehow initiated your journey to our church.


Fun with Music: Summer Pop-Up Choir: During the traditional services at 8:30 am this summer, you’re invited to “pop in” at 8 am in the choir room to run through the hymns before the service begins. It’s going to be a fun summer of sweet and simple old hymns.  If you’re a musician/singer who would like to share your talent in a solo or duet, please let Nancy Docksey or Rev. Matt know ahead of time.


Kitchen Clean Up: 

Please make sure if use the kitchen you clean the kitchen. We. have had a few issues lately where things have not been left as clean as they should be.
