|St. Mary's is an assembly of Christian
believers who gather together in the
community of Silver Run. We are a
collection of people with different needs and
concerns and yet we are called to a unity
which grows from joining together in worship
of God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy
Spirit. Each of us has different God-given
talents which we are called to use to witness
to our faith in God's love revealed through
Jesus Christ. We are called and empowered
by the Holy Spirit to invite others to share in
our faith in Christ and to welcome them
into the life of our congregation.

GARY AND I WILL BE VISITING GERMANY LATER THIS SUMMER. We'll be
staying with Petra and family and visiting with Pastor Deiter and family and seeing as
many of the youth that visited St. Mary's as possible. We'll even be participating in a
Saturday evening worship service and have been invited to a wedding! If you would like
to send a card, note, photos or something small and light reminiscent of our visit together
along with us, we will be happy to share it. We plan to send some items via mail prior to
our visit and would like to do so by Friday, July 10 or Monday, July 13 at the absolute
latest. Even if your children weren't involved in the last visit but would like to participate
and they'd like to make a card that would be wonderful. We'd like to share as many
greetings as there are people that would like to participate. If you have any questions,
please feel free to call me at 443-244-0453. Thanks so much, Brenda Meadows
PETITIONS FOR CHURCH PRAYERS – “Pastor Lee” welcomes your additional
petitions for the “Prayers of Intercession,” which we offer during our worship service.
Simply inform him before service. Having something written up is not necessary, but
WE WILL BE PARTICIPATING IN “GOD’S WORK. OUR HANDS” by helping a
family with basic yard work on Sunday, September 13th, following worship. Volunteers
should pack a lunch as our group will be eating in the Parish House prior to going to the
work location. Bring gloves and dress appropriately for working outside. Please bring
clippers and yard rakes if you have them. Contact Dwyn Fleischer, 410-345-7065 should
you have any questions or want more information.
ON SEPTEMBER 13, THE SUNDAY SCHOOL STUDENTS WILL BE
PARTICIPATING IN "GOD'S WORK, OUR HANDS." This year they will be making
cards for the Shepherd's Staff to distribute. If you have any magazines or old calendars
with nice, uplifting pictures we can use them. You can give them to me or put them on the
round table in the Sunday School room.
Thanks for your help. Kelli Scott
