17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. 20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.

2 Corinthians 5:17-20

I was standing in the kitchen on Thursday morning, about to leave for church, when my wife asked, "Is  pot roast o.k. for Sunday?" I cautiously said, "Of course, why?" "Well," she said, "it is Father's Day, and I wondered if you wanted something else, something more special." I responded, "I completely forgot that Sunday is Father's Day.  Thanks for the reminder." I left for church and began searching the Scriptures to write this note.
Happy Father's Day to every dad who takes his role as a father seriously.  There are few callings in life that have a greater impact, positively or negatively, than being a good father.  
A good father teaches the Christian faith to his children.
Deuteronomy 11:18-21 (NIV) 18  Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 19  Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 20  Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates, 21  so that your days and the days of your children may be many in the land that the LORD swore to give your forefathers, as many as the days that the heavens are above the earth.
A good father creates a loving home that begins by loving his wife.
Ephesians 5:25 (NIV) Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.
A good father loves his children enough to disciple them.
Ephesians 6:4 (NIV) Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
A  good father knows how blessed he is for the gift of his family.
Psalm 127:5 (NIV) Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate.
A good father lives his faith in God, a faith that is heard and seen by his children.
A good father's knees are calloused from time spent in prayer. 
A good father worships weekly with his family.
A good father is not perfect; he is perfectly forgiven in Jesus' name.
John 10:29 (NIV) My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand.
Happy Father's Day!

Mission of the Summer - 
Amy Formella

Amy works for Lutheran Bible Translators and is now back to living in Sierra Leone. After a year of working from home due to covid restrictions she is happy to be back to work! Amy’s team is currently working on proofreading Lamentations, so it is ready for the reviewers to read through, and then they will begin team-checking Jeremiah. Jeremiah, and then Ezekiel, will take some time and energy because of their length and their poetic way of prophesying. Thank God for translating! (Taken out of Amy’s newsletter)!
Birthday Kits – Summer Camp is doing a fun mission project that if any of the congregation is interested in doing that would be awesome! The children are putting birthday kits together for less fortunate children. The kits consist of cake mix, frosting, sprinkles, candles, plates, and napkins placed inside of a disposable 9x11 inch foil pan and wrapped in plastic wrap! If you want to put one together you can drop it off in the basket in the narthex or in the chairs directly across from the basket and we can collect them weekly. This little project will end Sunday July 25th! Thank you in advance!

Comfort Dogs join in Ordination Celebration
of Pastor Wrasman
This past Sunday, I had the pleasure of being with my fellow K-9 Comfort Dogs: Lizzie (Trinity, Savannah, GA) and Seth (Eternal Shepherd, Seneca, SC), to join the members of Oak Road Lutheran Church in Lilburn, Georgia, for the ordination ceremony of their vicar-now-pastor, Andrew Wrasman.  
This was a jubilant celebration for this congregation as they patiently waited for their vicar to complete his seminary training and to assume the honor of being their pastor.  More than a dozen pastors throughout the state of Georgia were present to lay hands on their new brother in ministry and to celebrate this special day for Andy and his family.
Our former pastor Rev. Gregory S. Walton led the Ordination and Installation celebration service.
Here are some pictures from the service.
Please continue to submit your requests for a Zoom visit via the following methods:
  1. Complete the ‘Hope Comfort Dog Request’ form via this link:
    When a request is submitted, the information is sent directly to my organizer’s phone.
  2. Call the church office at (770) 973-8877 to set up a visit. Janice Schaag and Susie Glass are excellent sources for getting this information to my group.
