Worship Info for 7/12/2020

Worship Info for Sunday 7/12/2020

Good evening friends! I hope you’ve had a good week and are looking forward to the weekend!!

This Sunday we will continue our new sermon series called “Three Simple Rules.” We’ll look at the first rule, which is “Do Know Harm.” What did John Wesley really mean when he told the early Methodists they needed to do know harm? How can we apply this rule to our daily living during this unprecedented time.

I also want to remind you of our two new study opportunities.

  1. For our children, we are offering Children’s Church via Zoom right after worship. The Zoom log-in information is included near the bottom of this email.
  2. It’s not too late for you to join in The Wesley Challenge, which meets daily at 4 pm via Facebook Live. You can catch up on the previous sessions, by viewing the videos that are posted on our church’s Facebook page. They aren’t hard to find…just look for my smiling face!

Do you miss seeing some of your church family members?? Why not join us for our Meet & Greet at 8:30 am tomorrow morning?? This Zoom meeting is open to all.

One more note: last Sunday during Holy Communion, I forgot to mention our Communion Offering, which we normally receive on Communion Sundays (usually the first Sunday of every month). 100% of the Communion offering goes toward helping those who are in need. If you would like to give to the Communion Offering, you may do so either electronically using one of our usual electronic giving processes, or you can mail your contribution, designated as “Communion Offering” or “Pastors Discretionary Fund,” to the church. Thank you for your generosity toward this very important and necessary fund.

Here’s what you need for Sunday’s activities. Our worship service will begin with our Prelude at 9:30 AM and will be broadcast over Facebook Live and also through our weblink. See below for the different ways to join.

Here’s Your Digital Bulletin for tomorrow morning!

Please Register Your Attendance!
Remember, we have TWO WAYS to let us know you are in worship:
1. Click here to access our SoL Online Attendance Registration & Prayer Request Form. Use this form to not only register your attendance (and the attendance of those worshiping with you), but to also share any prayer requests or other comments with your church.
2. If you have our SoL Church Center App on your phone, tap on the “Check In” at the bottom of the home screen and follow the prompts. (The App can be downloaded to your phone by going to the App Store or Google Play.) You can check-in yourself and your family members just like we’ve been doing for the last 9 months in person at SoL. The difference is…NO BARCODE TO SCAN!! Please remember: this option does not allow you to include any prayer requests. To share a prayer request, use option 1 above.

Also, please remember, if you view the worship service after the fact (like on Sunday afternoon or during the week), please complete the SoL Online Attendance Registration form. You won’t be able to use the app as described in #2 above, but we do want to know if you attended, even if it wasn’t on Sunday morning.

SoL Meet & Greet via Zoom
We highly encourage you to join us for this Meet & Greet time before worship tomorrow morning!! The folks who have been attending have asked about some of you they would like to see but haven’t. What’s more, the Topping’s also join in, so you can get a behind-the-scenes look at us as we finish preparations for worship! We’ll log in at about 8:15, but the Meet and Greet won’t begin until 8:30 AM.

Online Worship Access
To log-in via Facebook Live: Whether you have a Facebook account or not, you can join the livestream by going to our SoL Facebook page, then clicking on “Videos” on the lefthand side.
