SCRIPTURE FOR PENTECOST

When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.
~Acts 2:14

Our prayer for Ukraine:

 

Lord God, we pray for protection for the people of Ukraine whose lives have been disrupted by this conflict and for those in Russia who are protesting this invasion. We thank You for all people with compassionate hearts who have provided food, prayers, shelters, clothes, funds, and other needed items for the refugees. We thank You, Lord, for the people around this world who have shared their resources to help these displaced people and, through their heartfelt giving, have let refugees know that You have not forgotten them. In Jesuss Name we pray. Amen.

Prayer Time

“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” ~1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Our Monthly Prayer

Lord God, the world needs Your help! Please lead nations to strive for peace with each other. Help them supply the needy with provisions – fresh water, food, medical supplies and healing, support, shepherds to share Your love, leaders who pray for Your wisdom, and servants who follow Your will and bring compassion and faith to others. Please, let Your Heart shine through Your people to end all conflicts, filling the world with peace. Amen

New Adult Sunday School Class

Beginning on Sunday, September 11,
Rally Day, Sunday School classes will start. This year, an additional adult class will be included and led by David Ravel. David and his wife, Nancy, are some of our newest members and they’ve moved here from Blandon, PA. The Ravels attended St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Fleetwood, PA, where they were both actively involved. Nancy worked with the nursery and was an usher and an acolyte. David has worked with a youth choir, has and been a reader and teacher of both youth and adult Bible study classes. David enjoys teaching and feels he learns as much as the students do as he prepares his lessons. David is a retired police sergeant and Nancy was a homemaker, raising their sons. Please introduce yourself to David and Nancy, who attend the 8:00 service, and feel free to join David’s class in September at 9:45 AM in the fellowship hall.

We are located in Salisbury, MD on the corner of Camden Ave. and South Blvd.

Why do we exist?

We exist, as a church body in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to learn of Him through His Holy Scriptures, to worship Him only, and to serve Him by meeting the needs of others and by sharing the gift of salvation through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


Our verse for August:

“Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; let

those who love Your salvation say continually, The Lord

be magnified!’” ~ Psalm 40:16

YOUR MONTHLY JOY VERSE

The Bible is filled with verses that remind us to be

happy, joyful, and content. Continue to rejoice and be

glad that we have been granted His gracious gift of

salvation which we can share as we witness to those

around us. Christ died for us be filled with joy!



Practice joy:


Start off each morning when you rise by saying, This is

the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be

glad in it.” ~ Psalm 118:24
