Looking for a few good helpers!
VBS during lunch or snacks, esp. Friday

Want to see the Cedarkirk counselors in action? Ilma DeLaRosa could use a little help during lunch overseeing hand washing and passing out boxed lunches, 11:30-12:30. Let her know if you can help one or more days.

Snack time around 3:00 also gets a little crazy; and Friday 3:00-5:00 will be open pick-up time when the counselors are headed out, so a few extra hands would be welcome!

Email Ilma at children@hydeparkpres.com if there’s a day you can lend a hand any of those days.

In Person Worship at 10 am; also Live Streamed.
At 10:00 am, Click To View Online Worship Service, or watch it later.
Sunday School for Children & Adults follow the service.

11 am: Sunday School for Children & Adults

From Conquest to a Kingdom: The Israelites’ journey proves that God providentially guides and cares for His people. Israel’s victory over Jericho and God giving His people the land show that God can and will perform miracles.

Kids gather in the Chapel for singing; then head to their classes.
Adults meet in the Learning Center. If you cannot make it and would like the daily devotional that goes with this week’s lesson, please reach out to the office.

Brief Recap of July 10 Congregational Meeting

The congregation voted to sell the house at 612 S. Orleans for $775,000 in cash. The money has been wired to the Title company and things are moving forward. If everything goes well, closing will be at the end of August.

Brazil Short-Term Mission Trip: June 23-July 1, 2022
Arnel Senson: “Serving others on this missions trip to Brazil was the absolute best experience I have ever had in my entire life!  Thank you to all those who supported and prayed for us–my heart is still there and I’m looking forward to and encouraging others to join us on the next one!”
Above: A celebration for the kids with games, goodie bags, snacks, fun, and of course, music … in the church that the team painted (3 coats!) in one day. You can find Arnel, Ilma and others on the team on the right side.

Sweltering heat; but baby, it’s cold inside!

There’s no hope of cooler weather, but we will experience cooler temps in the Sanctuary for awhile. Rev. James is experiencing a condition which is exacerbated by heat, and will be wearing a bit more casual attire to help as well. So please, grab a wrap on the way to church and enjoy the cool!
