Our Worship Service

Sunday Morning Worship Service
10:00 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.

We gather together in the presence of God to pray with and for one another; read, hear and meditate upon scripture; share joys and concerns; hear the Word preached; and offer praise to God through music.  When requested the sacrament of Baptism is offered.  On the first Sunday of each month the children join their family in the sanctuary to share in the sacrament of Holy Communion.  On the second and fourth Sunday of each month a Children's Message is given.  Before worship you will hear the joyful noise of people greeting one another.  During worship you may hear clapping or even laughter.  Worship continues downstairs in Fellowship Hall as we gather for refreshment and fellowship.  Our worship together as the Body of Christ is a reminder that truly God is good - All the time!

Sunday Morning Reflections

July 16, 2017

Good morning!


     Oh what funny weather we are having, from a low of 44 to a high of 83 yesterday. Things are changing. The yard sale team is in need of your help this week. Many hands make light the work. Please contact either Karen Greenlaw or the office to help. 


    On the 25th of July a few of us will be at Chapin Park in Bangor giving away free hot dogs in conjunction with the Block Party festivities. It is a great time to come out and relax as the Bangor Band plays in the outdoor arena. There is no charge just lots of fun. Face painting, ice cream, drinks, hula hoops, story time to name a few. (ALL FREE)


   In Adult Bible study that starts at 9am this morning the subject will be; "What makes a good Church Member. On the 223rd the subject will be; Why Pray and then on the 30th; Rule for Life, Is it loving?

   


        July 18 Old Home Week Supper EOCC 4:30 -6

        July 22 EOCC GIANT YARD SALE

        July 23 Start of Camp Winnie (registrations available at church) Due Now

        July 25 5-7 Neighborhood block party

        August 12 7th Annual Charity Car Show and Auction

        Sept 10 Sunday School Rally Day: New time 9:45 start.



 Recently while reading an article about how things were made I came across a story about how the bridge over Niagara Falls got started. On or about  January 30, 1848, Homan flew a kite he named Union from one side of the gorge to the other. Someone on the opposite side caught the kite and tied a stronger string to the end of the kite string, and Holman pulled the new, thicker string back across the gorge. The process was repeated with an even stronger string, then a cord, then a thin rope, then a thicker rope, and eventually a steel cable, which crossed the expanse and was strong enough to support workers, tools, and materials. Finally, a sturdy bridge, over which trains and trucks could easily pass, was completed. And it all began with a string.  


    This story made me think about the passage in Luke where Jesus says, “He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much”.  Often times I think of this passage as a financial message but this  story made me look at it a little differently.  Little things can make a significant impact on the big picture. So I started to write many little things down and over the next few weeks I will share some of my thoughts. I hope you write some down as well and share them with me.

    One example; this month we will be feeding about 85 people in the Bangor area on the last Sunday. In Fellowship Hall are single small items anyone can pick up and bring back to the church before the last Sunday of the month. It may seem like such a small thing but when combined with many other small things, we feed many (reminds me of Jesus taking taking a few fish and feeding the many). Just like a small kite string lead to the building of a bridge one small item can show the vastness of God's love. Get involved and do the little things.


    I pray your summer is going well and I look forward to seeing you soon. God bless, Pastor Carl


Almighty God, thank you for the reminders you present to me in so many ways. Open my eyes to see these teachings better, my ears to hear and my mind to understand. Lord most importantly may my heart continue to change to be more in your ways than my own. Father, as I explore the little things may I grow in the big things. I ask this in your Son's mighty name, Amen
