Morning Worship, 10:30 AM, in the Sanctuary or Charter Chapel
The August 2 worship service will include a special time of parent/child dedication. Brian Lee's message, "Surrendered Prayer" will be presented as part of the "Learning How to Pray" series based on The Lord's Prayer in Matthew 6. The Sanctuary Choir and congregation will be led in music and worship by Hiram Rollo, including the Sanctuary Choir's presentation of "We Walk by Faith." Treva Medbery will inspire us with the following words as she sings the John Peterson song titled "My Song": I have no song to sing but that of Christ, my King! To Him my praise I'll bring forevermore!
* At a designated time during the Morning Worship Service, FOURS will be guided to Preschool Worship; children in Grades K-4 will remain in the Sanctuary to worship with their families. Please be reminded that you may worship in Charter Chapel, where a live feed of the service is available.
* If you arrive after the worship service begins, please enter through the front doors of the church.
* You may access previous sermons by clicking on "Podcasts" on the Shades Crest website's home page.

Camp Chandler participants and their families are invited to our Camp Chandler Reunion Wednesday, August 5, 6:00-7;00 PM, in our Student Center (Room 223), located upstairs in our main building. Please know that our regular Bible study will be going on in Fellowship Hall; it may be easier to park in the back parking lot.
This will be a very relaxed time of meeting some new people. Some of our older students (7th -12th graders) will assist through the evening. We will have brownies and drinks and hear a few stories from our children and adults. It should be a great evening of fun and meeting a few new people. Our chaperones will be present along with some of our new Sunday School teachers to meet the children.
The new Sunday School year starts Sunday, August 9, 9:15 AM; if you are looking for a church home, we invite you to join us.
This class is designed for young men (ages 22-39) who are wanting to grow in their faith through Bible study and doing life together. If you are new on your faith journey, or you have been following Christ for years, please feel free to visit this men's "connect group" on Sunday mornings. We will start meeting August 9, 9:15 AM, in Room 255.
This class, led by teachers, Owen Coulson and Lee Surtees, will be very discussion based, opposed to a lecture type time. Please make plans to join us and let others know as well. You can email/text/call Owen Coulson (email@example.com, 283-1914) if you have any questions. Please find a message from Owen Coulson on page 2 of this article.
