Go and Make Disciples!
 
ANNOUNCEMENTS:
There will be a special dinner in honor of Jim Shimek on Friday, July 27th at 6:00 pm in the Fellowship Hall.  
 
August 5th we will have a church picnic after worship service at 11 am in the Fellowship Hall - all are welcome.  There will be a potluck so lots of good food. 
 
 
 
 Missions:
 Donations of non-perishable food items are greatly appreciated and are donated to Our Lady of Consolation Food Pantry.
 
Our church in partnership with The Congregations of Merrillville, sponsors a free "community meal" on Saturdays between 11AM-2PM -  "Feeding the Flock".  There will are eleven churches in the Merrillville area partnering together with the Congregations of Merrillville to provide these meals each Saturday:  Christ the Cornerstone, Dyer Presbyterian, First Presbyterian Church, Hour of Restoration, Living Grace, Our Lady of Consolation, Peace United Church of Christ, Protection of the Virgin Mary Orthodox Church, St. Andrew the Evangelist, St. Joan of Arc, Trinity Lutheran, Unity AME Zion and Word of Life plus both the Merrillville Breakfast and Lunch Kiwanis and The Lions Club.  We are all looking forward to bringing this ministry to Merrillville.  To date we have provided over 25,000 meals. 
 
We are 'nesting'  in our Church with Christ the Cornerstone who worship at 9:30 AM in the Chapel; Fresh Winds Christian Center who worship at Noon in the Chapel and The Hour of Restoration who worships at 5 PM on Sunday in the Lounge.
 
In the meantime, we want to send Birthday and Anniversary wishes to those listed below.
