This Sunday

This Sunday, July 17: The Ninth Sunday after Pentecost


Almighty God, the fountain of all wisdom, you know our necessities before we ask and our ignorance in asking: Have compassion on our weakness, and mercifully give us those things which for our unworthiness we dare not, and for our blindness we cannot ask; through the worthiness of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.


Prayer for the Search Committee:

Almighty God, giver of every good gift: Look graciously on your Church, and so guide the minds of those who shall choose a rector for this parish, that we may receive a faithful pastor, who will care for your people and equip us for our ministries; through Jesus Christ our Lord.


This Sunday is The Tenth Sunday after Pentecost.  The liturgical color is green. The lessons for July 24 are Genesis 18:20-32; Psalm 138; Colossians 2:6-19; Luke 11:1-13.

Childcare begins at 9:45 a.m. in the nursery.
