Rev. Ashley Bair will preach from the book of Amos. Amos was a shepherd and a fig tree farmer who lived on the border of Israel and Judah. While he didn’t come from a line of prophets, Amos felt called to prophesy. At the time, there was a feeling of peace and prosperity, but only for those who reaped the benefits of idol worship. Amos traveled to a temple in Israel to remind people of God’s Word and speak out on behalf of those who had been neglected. The writings of Amos offer an important reminder of who we are as people of God and that no matter our circumstances, we have the ability and power to speak out for ourselves and our people.

SUNDAY, JULY 28
Do you ever wonder how and why we should pray? The disciples once asked Jesus how they should pray, and Jesus provided not only a sample prayer (what we call the Lord’s Prayer) but also a fascinating response about prayer and persistence and a trust that God will give us good gifts. Rev. Colby will preach on Luke 11:1-13 and guitarist Jim Falbo shares in worship.
