This week’s worship service is Community Sunday, our annual celebration of the blessings and gifts of our community. Three community members—John Gahan, Calvin Henderson, and Amelia Brown—will offer reflections on the scripture readings for the day and their experiences of faith. Rev. Dr. Bill McKinney will lead us in a ceremony of remembrance in which we honor and remember friends and family who died in the past year. Craigville ministers Rev. Joanne Hartunian and Rev. Eric Henderson will offer prayers. Kendra Henderson will lead us in contemporary praise songs, and Ginny Henderson will accompany us as we sing favorite hymns such as “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee” and “How Great Thou Art.”
Community Sunday is one of our favorite services of the year. The people of Craigville hold many talents and experiences, and this celebration of our life together will highlight the wisdom and memories in our midst. We have a lot to thank God for!
