"DO... LOVE... WALK" We heard a familiar text yesterday in Micah 6 - "Do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with your God."
Our eyes fall first on three words: Justice, kindness (or mercy) and humbly. But a closer look points to an emphasis on the verbs - Do, love, walk. And, it's likely that the reverse order is necessary to get to "do." That is, our life in the Kingdom begins with walking with God. Walking with God leads us to loving what God loves - kindness. Loving kindness will prompt us to do - to do justly and act with integrity and faithfulness to others in our community.
What's your next step? If you don't know, just start by walking with God.

In addition to great music and the message, you'll hear Michelle Christy (9:00 a.m.) and Jamie Jongerius (10:20) talk about their time in Haiti.
YOUTH GROUP IN MISSISSIPPI!
Our summer of mission continues this week with high school students at Cary Christian Center in Mississippi! They've gotten off to a great start, but one of the sponsors is not feeling well today. Let's lift up Jason in prayer.

The Clothe-A-Child drive continued yesterday. This is a drive which will help nine local elementary students within our school district be able to have new clothes for the 2015/2016 school year. You can stop in the office during office hours to sign-up during the week. All purchases will need to be brought to church by this Sunday, July 19.
