ANNOUNCEMENTS

1767 to 2017 – Providence Presbyterian Church Celebrates 250 years next year! We are in the midst of our year-long celebration and invite you to read the weekly “Craighead Chronicles” and remember to fill out a leaf for the “Tree of Service, Leaves of Love” located in the sanctuary narthex and don’t miss a second Sunday which will always include an “Historic Remembrance!” May God’s work continue to move in, around and through this Providence community and out into the world.

  • We invite you to please join us for worship on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am and 11:15 am.
  • Providence provides Sunday school for all ages from 10:15 am to 11:00 am each Sunday. Please join us on Sundays for our six week summer series on the Book of James. This class will meet in the Fellowship Hall.

Gratitude
(Walt McCanless)

Thank you for birds in the trees,
with listening ears I pass under these
delighting in the music of the spheres
as it echoes in birdsongs clear.

For black squirrels, hawks and deer,
Cardinals, finches golden, and ducks queer,
An open window, cool breeze, a cold beer,
the almost tangible sense of your presence near.

a book to read, a letter to write
even the ad-man’s ridiculous hype,
good to have something to berate
better than regretting something I ate.

Speaking of food, you’ve not been stingy,
barbecue, slaw, burgers and kimchi,
Korean, Italian, Mexican – nice and hot
and just about anything cooked in a wok.

It’s all so splendiferous and over the top
such abundant fruitfulness, please don’t stop,
Help us figure out how all can receive,
from your bounteous blessing all they need.
