Scripture Lessons:

Psalm 107: 1-3, 23-32

O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures forever.
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, those he redeemed from trouble
and gathered in from the lands,
from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south....
Some went down to the sea in ships, doing business on the mighty waters;
they saw the deeds of the Lord, his wondrous works in the deep.
For he commanded and raised the stormy wind,
which lifted up the waves of the sea.
They mounted up to heaven, they went down to the depths; their courage melted away in their calamity;
they reeled and staggered like drunkards, and were at their wits’ end.
Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out from their distress;
he made the storm be still,
and the waves of the sea were hushed.
Then they were glad because they had quiet,
and he brought them to their desired haven.
Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love, for his wonderful works to humankind.
Let them extol him in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.

2 Corinthians 6:1-13 

Mark 4:35-41

July 4 Service Returns to Salem Square!
Sunday, July 4, 8:30 a.m.

“According to the order of the government of this State we celebrated a day of thanksgiving for the restoration of peace.” –Records of the Moravians in NC, July 4, 1783

On Sunday, July 4, Home Church marks the anniversary of the Celebration of Peace that was offered by our Moravian forebears on July 4, 1783. Our congregation traditionally celebrates this anniversary with an outdoor service early on the morning of the 4th. This year, the service falls on a Sunday, so it’s a great chance to get to Salem early, enjoy outdoor fellowship with brothers and sisters, and then gather in the sanctuary for our 10 a.m. worship (in which we will celebrate the Holy Communion in honor of the martyrdom of Jan Hus). Come and gather in the square, listen to the band, remember our nation’s history and the place of our community within it, and give thanks for the peace our Savior brings to our hearts every day.
