Dear Church Family,

Bob and I are on vacation this next week and in my absence we have two very good preachers stepping up to cover the pulpit.This Sunday Barbara Singelmann will be preaching on love and in particular “God’s love”. And the following week Helen Robles will be preaching on “Do You Feel Battered By Life’s Storms?” I am so very thankful to have leaders willing to step up and I know your lives will be enriched by the word they will present to you.

Don’t forget to reach out to your neighbors and friends to see if anyone is in need. We have plenty of food in our food pantry and lots of clothes waiting to find a home. Our food pantry is open on Thursdays from 11:00 to 2:00pm. and the clothing ministry is open by appointment only. 

Summer Blessings,
Pastor Barbara

1 Corinthians 13:1-6

13 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

This art creation was at the Morton Arboretum, it speaks to the connection we have with nature. If you have a chance to go there the art exhibits by Daniel Popper are breathtaking!

Food Pantry Updates!

 

 

The EGPC food pantry continues to serve our community and our volunteers remain faithful in their service to us. We are committed to adhering to all precautionary measures to ensure no cross-contamination with clients. The Food Pantry Donation drop box always seems to be filled. As you check on your neighbors, please share with them that our food pantry is open and ready to help anyone who needs food!

Food continues to appear in our food box.  Almost daily there is something donated and many times from people we don’t even know! I want to send a special thanks to all those faithful shoppers who each week pick up the special things we need. It is an ongoing blessing to be so graciously supported by your donations and donations from our community.

Thank you!
