Here’s What’s Happening Sunday ...
Welcome to the Tenth Sunday After Pentecost — July 24th!
“Worship in the Garden” at 8:30 am; “Worship in the Sanctuary” at 9:30 am
Welcome to the Tenth Sunday after Pentecost — and the fourth Sunday with “Worship in the Garden” as well as “Worship in the Sanctuary”!
The lectionary readings for this Sunday, July 24th, include from the Older Testament Hosea 1:2-10, where the Lord commands Hosea to take a wife and bear children; the Psalm of the day is Psalm 85, where the Psalmist says, Will you be angry with us forever, O Lord? Show your steadfast love; in the Newer Testament, the epistle reading comes from Colossians 2:6-15, where Paul writes to the Colossians, Live your lives in the faith of Christ; do not let anyone condemn you; and, the gospel reading is from Luke 11:1-13, where Jesus teaches the disciples to pray, and teaches them about prayer. Pastor Peter will preach on “We Need a Prayer” at the 8:30 Worship in the Garden service and at the 9:30 am Worship in the Sanctuary service.
Sunday School is on hiatus for the summer months, and will resume on “Welcome Back! Sunday,” September 11th, when worship resumes its 10:30 am time slot. A Children’s Message will be offered during the summer months!
And, as usual, the worship service will be live-streaming on your home computer or smart-phone, beginning at 10:30 am, on the BPC webpage at: media.bridgehamptonpc.org or m.bridgehamptonpc.org.

Feature Photos of the Week ...
New Shrubs help bring unity to the church front as fresh landscaping is planted.
New Landscaping in of Front Church Includes New Shrubs
This past week saw new shrubs planted in front of the church on both sides of the front door. The aging shrubs have been moved and replacements installed. Now that the painting and new roof are complete, landscaping to bring greater beauty for our community can be done. Our gratitude goes to Fred and Ellen Wilford who have donated the shrubs and labor.
Last week the final painting touch up was accomplished, as painters cut in along the roofline following the recent installation of the new roof on both the main church and the back building. The whole east side of the main church was total repainted following damage caused by winds when the shingles were removed. The front door was also given a fresh coat of paint as well as the corner columns from the ground to the roof.
