Welcome, Lucie Matlack!
In case you missed it, Lucette (Lucie) Lea Matlack was born at 4:09am on June 16th (Father’s Day and Trinity Sunday)! We rejoice with Kate and Joshua, as this beautiful baby girl is added to their family. Praying God’s blessings on them; for rest and recovery, and for a smooth transition to a family of four. If you want to help them out by providing a meal, please sign up through Meal Train at the following link: https://mealtrain.com/d91qqv.
Steven Dickens Deploying to Dubai
Steven will be leaving for Dubai this coming Monday, June 24th, and will be deployed for 6 months. Please be praying for safety for Steven, as well as strength for Lea Hanna and family. Let us pray for the Dickens family, along with all of those in our congregation who are serving in the military:
Almighty God, we commend to your gracious care and keeping all the men and women of our armed forces at home and abroad. Defend them day by day with your heavenly grace; strengthen them in their trials and temptations; give them courage to face the perils which beset them; and grant them a sense of your abiding presence wherever they may be; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
– “Prayer for Those in the Armed Forces”, Book of Common Prayer
Ordination and Confirmations on June 30th
We are planning for a big celebration next Sunday, June 30th, with the ordination of Dn. David Watts, as well as eight confirmations! Since we are expecting a larger crowd, it would be helpful for us to have a headcount in order to ensure adequate seating.

*Also, just a reminder for all who will be confirmed next Sunday: please plan to be at church at 9:30am this Sunday for a quick meeting with Father Brian.
Enjoy your weekend, and see you on Sunday!
