“O LORD, the king rejoices in your strength. How great is his joy in the victories you give!” (Psalm 21:1)
In the morning we begin a new series of messages called “Wise Living.” During the summer we will work through the book of Ecclesiastes where Solomon looks back at his life & draws Spirit-led conclusions about what wise living looks like in this broken world. This week we look at chapter 1 & Solomon’s lament that looks back on life & finds everything meaningless.
During the summer months, our planned Sunday evening activities are on the fourth Sunday of each month. We will host praise gatherings of hymns & songs, with ice cream fellowship afterward.
In the morning we will celebrate the professions of faith of Lauren M, Evie TH & Sophie T. We will continue a series of messages called “Wise Living,” working through the book of Ecclesiastes where God gives us an important perspective on what wise living looks like in this broken world.
At 5 pm we look forward to ALIVE leading us in a ministry of music. Weather permitting, we hope to hold the ministry outside in the south (parsonage) side of church. All are invited – friends & neighbors too – to bring your chairs or blankets, sit under the trees, & enjoy the words & melodies of songs that remind us of God’s grace, goodness & power. We will enjoy some fellowship & ice cream after the service. If weather does not permit, we will gather in the sanctuary.
This week Thursday, June 23, is Providence’s turn to pray all day in conjunction with the West Michigan Prays 24/7 initiative. If you’d like to claim a spot, please add your name to the list by emailing your name & preferred half-hour window to firstname.lastname@example.org. Even if a time slot has already been filled, choose whichever works best for you!
YBCs – We miss you already! Come see your leaders & grab some ice cream after the AM service next week. Meet us over by the kitchen near the gym!

DEPRESSION IN DADS
Many men struggle with anxiety & depression after becoming a dad, as they juggle lack of sleep, extra responsibilities, & a changed relationship with their partners. You don’t have to struggle alone. Members of Providence have access to free & confidential support from licensed clinicians. Connect with us to learn more: email@example.com or call 616-698-7930.
