Sermon: “Where The Wild Things Are”
Rev. Cindy Antonuk, guest preacher
Join us in worship outside at Beverly Commons (located at the junction of Essex, Dane, and Hale Streets) for Independence Sunday! On this special Sunday we will celebrate our independence and welcome guest preacher and FBC member, Rev. Cindy Antonuk, to continue our summer worship series, With the Eyes of a Child. Cindy will preach a sermon based on the beloved children’s book Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. Our service will also feature a special Stepsitters children’s moment where the book will be read aloud to our children and congregation alike. Music will be provided by John Hicks, a well-known Cape Ann guitar and string player. Please gather with us at 10:00 am at the gazebo on Beverly Commons, and communion will be prepared and served by our Deacons. Please, also, bring a chair or blanket to sit on unless you prefer the feel fresh grass beneath you. Following worship, the Communal Life Committee will treat us to delicious ice cream sundaes! This is a great Sunday to invite a friend to join us at the Commons!
Stories of the Summer
Join us this summer at First Baptist Church for our summer worship series, “With the Eyes of a Child: Exploring Faith through Story.” We welcome you to worship with us each Sunday at 10:00 am as we explore the life-long lessons learned from children’s books and scripture. Each week a children’s book will be featured in Stepsitters (a children’s moment during our service) and in the sermon. Children’s books are almost always expansive rather than limiting. They provide opportunities and guide us toward an understanding of belovedness and abundant life while tending to tell us about who we are, rather than who we are not. Throughout the summer there will also be mid-week Lectio story time opportunities, a time to read the stories with others and discuss their images, words, and meaning.
Below is our summer preaching schedule—mark your calendars for special worship events such as:
- Allagash & Fellowship Reunion Sunday on Sunday, July 10th, and
- Worship in the Park on Sunday, August 28th at Lynch Park in Beverly.
