POTLUCK LUNCH THIS SUNDAY!
This week our service will again begin at the new time of 10:30 a.m. Those who don’t wish to gather in person can join us on Zoom.
Our service will be followed by a potluck lunch at the New Vicarage. (Details and directions below!)
Our God is an Awesome God! That is the title of a song which came to mind when I began preparing for this week’s service. In our Gospel reading we see Jesus healing and reaching out to all, while in our New Testament reading we are warned against favouritism. God does indeed open heesh arms to all!
Our scripture readings for the Fourteenth Sunday after Trinity will be from Proverbs 22, James 2:1-17, and Mark 7:24-37, and we will be singing the hymns O Worship the King, To God be the Glory, When the Music Fades, Our God is an Awesome God, and Oh for a thousand Tongues to Sing!
Potluck – this week!
With the continued fall in Covid level in Chiang Mai, we are happy to have a potluck lunch this Sunday. This will be outside under the trees at the New Vicarage. Bring food to share and drinks will be provided. We are meeting outside to make everything as safe as possible. If you need a lift there are spare seats leaving from the church after the service.
The address is:
The New Vicarage,
9/65 Ban Ing Doi,
Kan Klong Chonprathan Road,
Tambon Chang Phueak,
From Maya Mall. Drive up Huay Keaw Road towards Chiang Mai University. Turn right along the Canal Road. Go through one small set of traffic lights. After the road crosses over to the right side of the canal, Ban Ing Doi mooban is accessed over a little white bridge on the left.
Enter the mooban and immediately turn left. The New Vicarage is straight ahead.
Retreat in Chiang Dao
We are now hoping this can take place at the beginning of October. Look out for more news!
