Scripture Lessons:

2 Kings 4: 42-44

Psalm 145: 10-18

 All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord,
    and all your faithful shall bless you.
 They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom,
    and tell of your power,
 to make known to all people your mighty deeds,
    and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
    and your dominion endures throughout all generations.

The Lord is faithful in all his words,
    and gracious in all his deeds.
 The Lord upholds all who are falling,
    and raises up all who are bowed down.

 The eyes of all look to you,
    and you give them their food in due season.
 You open your hand,
    satisfying the desire of every living thing.
The Lord is just in all his ways,
    and kind in all his doings.
 The Lord is near to all who call on him,
    to all who call on him in truth.

John 6: 1-21

Her gifts and strengths have benefited Moravian ministries and congregations across the Southern Province and beyond.

Church Interpreters Needed - As the opening of the fall church program approaches, we are looking forward to resuming our church interpretation program. With some of our seasoned interpreters no longer available, we are looking for new volunteers! We have an information manual, and you would be paired with an experienced interpreter to build confidence. If you are comfortable speaking with a group informally and answering questions about Home Church history and the Moravian faith, you will find this very rewarding. For questions or further information, please call Carol Southerland at (336) 768-0896.

Christmas Sale - Something new is coming your way sometime in Oct. 2021! YOU can help the World Mission Team!As you store your Christmas items please save gently used items for a Christmas Sale! Ornaments, bows, boxes, bags, wrappings, decorations, and only things for Christmas. Usable items needed by someone else! We pray the pandemic will be over and that we are able to come together to earn resources for Ray of Hope, Sierra Leone, Cuba, Peru and Central America. Contact Mallie Graham with any questions. Thank you!
