SCRIPTURE READINGS FOR SUNDAY, September 8, 2019

Philippians 4:4-7

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Let your gentleness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Matthew 6:5-8

“And whenever you pray, do not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, so that they may be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward. But whenever you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

“When you are praying, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do; for they think that they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

Sermon- Pray for Everything and Everyone

We will hold a Called Congregational Meeting today, immediately following the worship service to elect one new deacon. If you are a church member, please plan to stay for this brief meeting.

Youth Group starts TODAY, September 8th! We are gearing up for another great year! We will meet on Sundays from 11:45-1:15. For the first few months, we will focus on the basics of Christian faith, Spiritual Growth practices and what makes Presbyterians unique. “Confirmation” is an ancient tradition in the Christian church where young people celebrate the commitment God made to us, and make their own commitment to God. At the end of that series, you’ll have the opportunity to publicly “confirm” your faith! Cool! Youth group will be fun, active, friendship building and relevant to what’s going on in your life. Be a part of it!

Youth Group Fall Kickoff: Capture the Flag and Cedar Highlands Sleepover. Friday Sept.13, 4:30pm until Saturday 12:00 noon. We will be meeting at and returning to CPC. After meeting, we will go to Pastor Nancy and Bob Pearson’s Cedar mountain home. The cost is $5.00. We’ll have dinner, play Capture the Flag, share sunset devotions, play games, sleep (maybe), eat breakfast, then come back down the mountain. Invite lots of friend, since CTF is way more fun with loads of people! Look for the flier for more details. Bring your permission slips! For youth grades 6-12.
