Minister’s Welcome

Good morning and welcome to our Sunday gathering. Thank you for being here today. The Church as organized by the Holy Spirit through Jesus’ Apostles was in the habit of spending a lot of time together and there was a clear distinction between their relationships and the relationships of the world. And the world took notice. Jesus mentioned in His prayer from Gethsemane that it was through the love Christians will have for one another that the world will know He was indeed Christ. This is obviously talking about much more than Sunday morning and I rejoicing in Christ seeing this congregation mingle and live life together. Thank you and I thank God for you and for your beautiful examples of following Christ and learning to “dance” in His grace.

This Wednesday – July 26th – POTLUCK and Peak of the Week

This Wednesday is our monthly POTLUCK and Birthdays / Anniversary celebrations. Please plan to come out and enjoy good food and one another’s company as we celebrate those born or married in July.

Birthdays: Carolyne Gleason, Anna Leverington, Brian Birdwell

Anniversaries: Karl & Robin Randall; Dick & Myrt Martin; Tad & Nancy Schroeder; Chris & Sarah Appolson; Don & Jan Haefner

Peak of the Week – Please stay after dinner and worship with us for an hour of songs, music, scripture and inspirational stories of faith


Signup sheets are out, please sign up if you want to be a part of this year’s VBS (no matter how small a part). We will have an informational meeting next Sunday and you will be receiving information in your email.

The dates for our VBS are August 7th through 11th and I hope you are making plans to be a part of it. We are trying to gather all items that could help our decors; western country clothing, hats, wagon wheels, fake plants, fake rocks, antique pots, anything that would help us transform our auditorium into a pioneer’s camp.

Volleyball & Pickleball – TODAY from 6:30PM

Weather permitting, please join us this evening for Volleyball (we have a new net – YAY!) Pickleball (thank you Jim Clary) and Christian Music (thank you Pandora). If you don’t want to play either just bring your lawn chair, sit in the shade, listen to Christian Music and amuse yourselves with our impressive skills.

One of the keys to the 1st Century Churches strength was the time spent together so common out and have a good time.


Recently Warren and Elizabeth Oja welcomed the births of their identical twin daughters Iris and Heather. The Troy church family wishes to congratulate and celebrate with Warren and Elizabeth. Warren grew up in this church, and we look forward to continued fellowship with him and his family whenever possible.

We will send a church gift to them as a blessing and reminder of the love and fellowship we share. Anyone interested in participating in this gift, please see or contact Mary Alice Cowie or Nancy Schroeder. Thank you.
