June Newsletter and a New Sermon Series

Dear Peace Church Family,

If you were to pull out a piece of paper or open a blank note in your phone and begin writing all of the names of people you have met in scripture, you might be able to produce quite a list. I imagine you would include Jesus, of course, maybe some of the disciples, and perhaps some of our Old Testament heroes of the faith like Abraham, Moses, David, and Elijah. You might remember some of the women who came to the tomb to find it empty (you can’t go wrong with “Mary” in that case). You might think of some of the people listed in Jesus’ lineage like Ruth, Jesse, or Solomon.

But what about Puah and Shiphrah? Jonah or Mephibosheth? Philemon or Eutychus?

In the summer months of June, July, and August, we will step away from the prescribed Lectionary and dive into the bold and untold stories of our faith. We will explore the stories from scripture that we often overlook, miss altogether, or take for granted. These are “ordinary” people of faith who found themselves in extraordinary circumstances. Their stories will help us understand our own stories better, as we too seek to be people of faith, boldly witnessing to God’s goodness and offering our lives to God as he continues to write a beautiful story of his redemption, salvation, and glory.

We will journey with these men and women, from the Old Testament and the New Testament, and we will be reminded of the role we all may play in God’s redemptive story, and be encouraged in knowing that no action or offering is too small when it is God who is calling and blessing us.

I hope to see you each Sunday this summer as we explore the scriptures together.

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Becky
