Happy 4th of July! 🎆

Almighty God, you rule all the peoples of the earth.

Inspire the minds of all women and men to whom you have committed the responsibility of government and leadership in the nations of the world.

Give to them the vision of truth and justice, that by their counsel all nations and peoples may work together.

Give to the people of our country zeal for justice and strength of forbearance, that we may use our liberty in accordance with your gracious will.

Forgive our shortcomings as a nation; purify our hearts to see and love the truth.

We pray all these things through Jesus Christ. Amen.

Your gifts < Arcola Church < Apportionments < UMCOR ❤

Such a cool way that your offerings and gifts to support Arcola's ministries are magnified through our apportionments, which in part support the administration of UMCOR - United Methodist Committee On Relief and their incredible work with global disaster relief and humanitarian aid (here with refugees!), so that 100% of gifts made specifically for relief and aid efforts go straight to the source.

We give our thanks, Creator God, for the fathers in our lives.

Fatherhood does not come with a manual, and reality teaches us that some fathers excel while others fail.
We ask for Your blessings for them all and forgiveness where it is needed.

This Father's Day we remember the many sacrifices fathers make for their children and families, and the ways--both big and small--they lift children to achieve dreams thought beyond reach.

So too, we remember all those who have helped fill the void when fathers pass early or are absent; grandfathers and uncles, brothers and cousins, teachers, pastors and coaches and the women of our families.

For those who are fathers, we ask for wisdom and humility in the face of the task of parenting. Give them the strength to do well by their children and by You.

In Your Holy name, O God, we pray.
Amen.

- Rev. Chuck Currie, Xavier University

Not only are we celebrating our kids' Celebration Choir and adult Alleluia Choir this Sunday, but we're THRILLED to have a performance by Anthony Bellino, a trumpet player with the United States Marine Band!

Anthony began his musical instruction on trumpet at age 4 and piano at age 6. After graduating from the Interlochen Arts Academy in 2010, he earned his bachelor of music degree in trumpet performance from Northwestern University in Evanston in 2014. He earned a master’s degree in trumpet performance from Rice University in Houston in 2016. His notable instructors include Barbara Butler, Charlie Geyer, and Peter Bellino.

He attended the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara from 2013-15, during which he took part as a Zarin Mehta Fellow in the New York Philharmonic’s Global Academy program. While at Northwestern he won the concerto competition and performed the Arutunian Trumpet Concerto with the Symphonic Wind Ensemble. After his first year at Rice University, he was a recipient of the Presser Award, given to one graduate student per year. Prior to joining the "President's Own" Marine Band in 2016, he performed with the New York Philharmonic, Houston Symphony, the Alabama Symphony in Birmingham, and the New World Symphony in Miami Beach, Fla.

Thinking about what worship means to me, and when I feel the most connected- it is always alone in nature singing my favorite hymns. My walk this morning was no different. How great Thou art...
Thank you Stacy and George for sharing this night with us. Thank you Arcola for the beautiful service.
Wonderful Sermon and Choir! Thank you!💜
Thank you Arcola United Methodist Church for reminding us of the positive things in the midst of the Pandemic. Miss you!
I attended the 4 & 8 o'clock Christmas Eve Services, as a visitor. From the music to Pastor Chris' message it was the most moving and inspirational service I have attended in many a year. Thank You.
Pastor Chris: your sermon from Wednesday's advent service came to mind when I saw this. Thank you for reminding all of us to be the light for others and to find the light when the world feels dark.
From a friends page. Her daughter is in Urgent need. I know many of you donate blood for the regular blood drives. Maybe you’ll be the match this little girl needs! 🙏 Thank You!
Feeling family and support
To the dozens of people who poured your heart and soul into Joseph-THANK YOU! The show was nothing short of amazing! The sets, lighting, music, acting, costumes, makeup, programs were all amazing. What a talented community we are part of. God bless you all and bravo!
Due to the LCPS 2 hour delay today, the Tuesday morning Women's study will not meet this morning. Have a blessed day and see you next week.
Tickets just went on sale for the musical "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat"!
Tuesday AM Women's Bible Study Update: I sent an email last night to those on the registration list, but just realized there might be some of you who had not registered yet who were planning to come. We are canceling today's first meeting. I know that with the school delay we would have many who would be running late or unable to attend. I really wanted to have the best chance for everyone to attend this first meeting, so we will start on January 22nd. Thanks and sorry I'm late to post here!
