Our readings are Exodus 19:2-8a (God tells the Israelites that they “shall be for me a priestly kingdom and a holy nation” – a promise and a calling), Romans 5:1-8 (“God proves his love for us in that while we still were sinners Christ died for us”), Matthew 9:35-10:8 (Jesus sends out the disciples to cast out spirits, and to cure every disease and every sickness). The Rev. Stephen McPeek is preaching. Here is the order of service.

UTO Spring Ingathering Sunday, 21 June 2020:
This is a way for each person to express tangible THANKS to God for blessings, UNITED with other prayers and money, that reach out to the worldwide family. The UTO is a personal and family devotional program of the Episcopal Church. It is the sum of our daily thanks for the blessings in our everyday lives—for good weather, happy times, a job opportunity, and unexpected visits—there are so many things for which we can be thankful. We can be thankful to God for blessings and take action by putting coins in our Blue Box. We will forward our collected offering to the UTO offices in New York City where it becomes part of a fund within the Episcopal Church which supports mission projects all over the world. Please remember to bring your Blue Box (or, Blue Envelope) to church with you on 21 June or if you can’t be at church, please transfer the amount you have put aside to our account with “UTO” as a reference. (Kay Hollis, UTO Coordinator).
