6th Sunday After Pentecost

Worship in the Park: July 17


On July 17 at 10:30 AM, you are invited to bring a friend, a chair, table service, and a potluck item to Hedges Boyer Park where we will be meeting at the American Legion shelter for Worship in the Park! As beautiful as our sanctuary is, sometimes we forget to worship in the beauty of God's creation. July 17 we will pause for worship, singing familiar hymns, hearing God's Word to us, and receiving the gift of Jesus Christ in the sacrament of the Lord's Supper.


Learning about God's creation! This week in worship, we will hear that Zacchaeus climbed up in a Sycamore tree. We also are familiar with the Sycamore tree, having even named a local town after it. To learn more about the Sycamore tree, watch this video from the UK extension office!


On Zacchaeus

by Francis Quarles

Methinks I see, with what a busy haste

Zacchaeus climbed the tree. But oh how fast,

How full of speed, canst thou imagine, when

Our Savior called, he powdered down again!

He ne'er made trial if the boughs were sound

Or rotten, nor how far 'twas to the ground.

There was no danger feared: at such a call,

He'll venture nothing, that dare fear a fall.

Needs must he down, by such a spirit driven;

Nor could he fall, unless he fell to heaven.

Down came Zacchaeus ravished from the tree:

Bird that was shot ne'er dropped so quick as he.
