Cornwall United Methodist Church Welcomes You.
Join us as we worship Christ our Savior, study the Bible, and challenge each other to live daily in the power of the Holy Spirit. We invite you to worship with us on Sunday mornings. Even if you have a regular church home you attend on Sundays, we would love to have you visit one of our weekday Bible Studies or come to one of our annual dinners or events.

July Worship Themes
July 2 Guest Speaker ...Missionary Lucas Ndaro “A Table of Fellowship” Genesis 18:1-8, Matthew 26:17-30
July 9 “Doing the Desired Good” Romans 7:15-25a, Matthew 11:16-19
Paul’s famous statement, ‘The good that I would do, I don’t do.’ Is included in this passage. Paul admits that he struggles in doing the right thing and he identifies that sin still has a hold on him. In the text from Matthew, Jesus speaks of how the religious leaders have judged both John the Baptist and himself. We will see how the law helps us to know what is right and wrong, but that the ability to do the right is empowered by God.
July 16 “Set Free” *Romans 8:1-11, Matthew 13:1-9
“There is no longer any condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” The attitude of selfishness leads to death but the attitude that comes from the Spirit leads to life.” In the Matthew text, we read of the parable of the farmer. The conditions by 12 we give and our attitude as we give are important considerations in God’s work.
July 23 “A Spirit of Adoption” Romans 8:12-17, Matthew 13:24-30
Paul again refers to selfishness and contrasts it with God’s work of adoption. When we are changed, we are no longer selfish but rather we are children of God who are then made heirs with Christ. In the text from Matthew, Jesus tells the parable describing weeds growing alongside of the wheat. We are to accept this until the harvest.
July 30 “The Spirit’s Help” Romans 8:26-39 Matthew 13:31-33
Paul says that the Spirit helps us in our weaknesses. Jesus describes the work of the kingdom in this way. A little goes a long way because God multiplies what we give.

SUMMER CAMP AT GRETNA GLEN
The tradition of summer camp at Gretna Glen has deep roots as we celebrate 55 years of programming this summer. 200 acres of scenic hills and woodlands are ideal for day and overnight camp. The opportunities for children & youth to explore nature, develop friendships, broaden their experiences and embrace their faith journey at Gretna Glen are never-ending. Be assured that the safety of Gretna Glen summer campers and guests is something we take seriously. In order to provide a “Safe Sanctuary,” we carefully select staff members and volunteers through an application process that requires references, background checks, and child abuse clearances. Staff and Volunteers are trained before working with campers. Our campsite is accredited by the American Camp Association. To earn accreditation, Gretna Glen complies with more than 300 health, safety and program quality standards. We are also members of the Christian Camp and Conference Association.
