Announcements for the week of September 17th to September 23th

"The First must be the very Last"

Speak in LoveThe gospel this week (Mark 9:30-37) talks about how God is calling us to lead by serving.

It sounds very backwards. But in Mark 9:35 Jesus says that "Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all."

So we must serve others. And be humble. This is not always easy for us.

Jesus is telling us that we must love one another. Again.

So take the challenge this week and practice love. Pray for our shut-ins or others in our congregation that are struggling. Greet others whether at the grocery store, post office or library with a kind smile and cheerful hello. Volunteer somewhere - there is always a need for good people of all ages to help. Volunteer as a family! Check out the Galilee Stewardship page (choose Ministries and then Stewardship on our website menu) for some places that have needs.

We will see you this Sunday at worship where we can all praise the Lord as God's family! - JH

Readings For Next Week:   Jeremiah 11:18-20    James 3:13-4:10    Mark 9:30-37

Our weekend worship schedule offers three types of services:

Galilee Lutheran Church is located two miles east of where Maryland Route 100 merges into Mountain Road. Simply head toward the Chesapeake (follow the signs towards Gibson Island ). Halfway to Downs Park, you'll see us on the left side of the road, nestled in the woods. We'd love to offer you Christian hospitality and service in the name of our risen Savior and Lord, Jesus. May He guide you! ~ Pastor Hank Simon
