First Presbyterian and Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church, 6-11-17

by Martha Pennell,

Germania Luncheon Club meets Wednesday, June 14th, at 9:45 am at Saint Paul’s Lutheran church, car pooling to Kinzua Lake. 

Traveling Day Camp/VBS for children who have completed grades K-8 will be held July 10th-12th at First Presbyterian church with trip to Krislund Camp July 13th-14th. 

With both Pastors away, a hymn sing, “Hymns to Honor God,” was led by our church organist, Carol Bartholomew. 

Carol gave some interesting facts behind some of our most beloved and well-known hymns. 

Written in 1860 by two sisters living near West Point Military Academy, “Yes, Jesus Loves Me!” is well-known. The sisters opened their home to Bible study and fellowship for West Point attendees and for that reason were buried with military honors. 

Phillip Bliss was killed in a train wreck at the age of 38, but surviving in his luggage was the song, “I Will Sing of My Redeemer.” 

Written by evangelist George Bernard in 1913, “The Old Rugged Cross” was the most popular hymn of the twentieth century. It points out the cross is much more than a symbol, it is the heart of the Gospel. 

Maltbie Babcock was born in Syracuse, New York, a Presbyterian minister who loved nature. When he went for a walk he would say, “I’m goin’ out to see my father’s world.” Thus, “This is My Father’s World” was written by him in 1901. 

From our prayer of confession for Trinity Sunday: We confess that we are sometimes forgetful of you, blessed Trinity. We lose sight of your glory and neglect our rightful service and praise. Remind us that you are the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end of all things in creation. Give us faith to see your majesty. Amen.
