But a man named Ananias, with the consent of his wife Sapphira, sold a piece of property; with his wife’s knowledge, he kept back some of the proceeds, and brought only a part and laid it at the apostles’ feet. But Peter said, “Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Spirit and to keep back part of the proceeds of the land? While it remained unsold, did it not remain your own? And after it was sold, was it not at your disposal? How is it that you have contrived this deed in your heart? You have not lied to men but to God.” When Ananias heard these words, he fell down and died. (Acts 5:1-5a, NRSV)

Summertime, and the WORSHIP is easy! Beginning July 7th, we invite all worshipers to relax into worship with us as we change our worship style into a more casual setting. The Pastors are hanging up their robes and will don golf shirts and khakis. You are encouraged to leave your jackets, ties, high heels etc. at home and come ready to call out your favorite hymn and enjoy a different style of worship, including something we call “Brown Bag Children’s Sermons.” In the spirit of letting the Spirit move, we are asking the children to bring a brown bag with an object in it; the pastors will use these to spontaneously create a Children’s Sermon. Fun for the kids…..terrifying for the pastors! Our only rule for the object is that it 1. CAN’T BE ALIVE and 2. CAN’T HAVE EVER BEEN ALIVE.
Parents, please encourage your kids to pack a paper bag with something interesting, and bring them every Sunday.
Another feature of SummerWorship will be the inclusion of Youth and Young Adult Lay Readers. This is open to anyone 6th grade and above who is a competent reader. Readers are asked to commit to both services (like the pastors!) and will be allowed to leave after they read at the 11:00 service. Yes, serving includes sacrifice, and God blesses us when we give of our talents in serving Him. Contact Pastor Alan to get on the list: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Most importantly, this is a great opportunity for church members to invite friends and neighbors. It’s SUMMERTIME! And the worship is easy.
SUMMERTIME, and the youth group is easy! Easy to find, easy to join, easy to enjoy! Youth will meet every MONDAY (June through August) at 3:00 at the Kitty Hawk Beach Access (next to Black Pelican). This access features parking, bathrooms and outdoor showers. Look for Miss Kathy under her umbrella with the big red cooler. At 5:30 we will take the church van back to the Youth Lounge and enjoy a pizza supper followed by worshipping together from 7:00-8:00 at the Spirit Cafe in the Fellowship Hall. Parents are welcome to come at 7 and worship with us.
Calling all kids! Vacation Bible School registration has begun! Parents may pick up registration forms in the church office M-Thurs. from 8:30-4:00 or Fri. 8:30-noon.

VBS will be July 15-19 from 9:30AM to noon for children who have completed age 4 Preschool through 5th grade. For more information, contact email@example.com.
Thursday: Tenebrae Service 6:30 PM in the Sanctuary
This service of darkness is a powerful transition from the joy of the passover meal in the upper room with friends to the darkness of the crucifixion. Communion, candles, hymns and scripture readings tell the story as we walk with Jesus through the final night of his earthly life.
