4th of July—No one has signed up to indicate interest in attending the fireworks as a group, so there will be no organized outing this year. Be safe and enjoy the weekend!
Holiday--Church office will be closed on Monday.
$.02/Meal—July 24 will be our next collection date. Why advertise this now? To remind you to collect two pennies for every meal you eat! We’re hoping to hit $200 this month.
Seeking Volunteers—Have a few extra minutes each week? Building & Grounds committee would be exceedingly grateful if you could help out. They’re seeking someone to do some watering twice a week, sweep once a week, and wash some windows every now and again. Please speak with Roger if you have the time and ability to do so.
Wednesday, July 13 @ 7—Tornado Benefit at Southern Adventist U. It’s a magician, and it’s for a good cause. Click here for more info.

Text for this Week
The Coming of the Kingdom
Once Jesus was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was coming, and he answered, ‘The kingdom of God is not coming with things that can be observed; nor will they say, “Look, here it is!” or “There it is!” For, in fact, the kingdom of God is among you.’
Then he said to the disciples, ‘The days are coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. They will say to you, “Look there!” or “Look here!” Do not go, do not set off in pursuit. For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. But first he must endure much suffering and be rejected by this generation. Just as it was in the days of Noah, so too it will be in the days of the Son of Man. They were eating and drinking, and marrying and being given in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed all of them.
Likewise, just as it was in the days of Lot: they were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building, but on the day that Lot left Sodom, it rained fire and sulphur from heaven and destroyed all of them —it will be like that on the day that the Son of Man is revealed. On that day, anyone on the housetop who has belongings in the house must not come down to take them away; and likewise anyone in the field must not turn back. Remember Lot’s wife. Those who try to make their life secure will lose it, but those who lose their life will keep it.
I tell you, on that night there will be two in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. There will be two women grinding meal together; one will be taken and the other left.’ Then they asked him, ‘Where, Lord?’ He said to them, ‘Where the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.’
