Sunday, July 5, Summary
We began our new sermon series, Down by the Riverside, that's based on a spiritual of the same name. We started off by referencing a line from the song that says, "Lay down my heavy load" as we tackled the topic of Patriotism and what it means for the Church. We also welcomed Pastor Andy Nelms as the new Associate Pastor of Thrive Worship. He will be doing a separate three-week series called, "Get to Know Me". Andy is taking time to reach out, introduce himself, and learn more about what makes Thrive so great... and that's YOU! Take look at all the sermons from Sunday, below.
At 10:00 am and 12:00 pm we had Garden Communion. We practiced proper social distancing while partaking in Holy Communion. It looked as though it would rain but the clouds parted for a beautiful sunny event. Thank you for coming and following our guidelines to keep everyone safe during this difficult time. Hopefully, we will be together soon, but we will ensure safety first and explore new and interesting ways to worship together!
This month we're collecting School Supplies for Wesley-Rankin. You can leave your donations in the blue bins next to Entrance A. Our food ministry is still going strong and we've donated 212k pounds of fresh produce to over 57k people in need.

Do you have Spotify? Great! ALL of our sermons are now available on Spotify including other fun audio like our "Talk to an Artist" series from our 723 Forth Worth Ave. Ministry.
This coming Sunday, we'll continue "Down by the Riverside" by talking about Social Justice. We will have a guided discussion with special guests that you can participate in online. To sign up, visit llumc.org/riverside. We have a virtual mission trip coming up and another amazing live stream concert in the works as well. Stay tuned, in the coming days we'll have more information available on that. If you want to stay up on everything follow us in twitter, sub to our weekly email, like our Facebook page, and/or follow us on Instagram.
Stay safe, stay positive, and continue loving ALL into relationship with Jesus Christ.
Love ya, Lovers Lane!
