There will be a Father's Day presentation by the children. Sermon Series: "Com- pelled by Love." Sermon Title: "The Fa- ther's Heart of Us." Scripture Reading: Luke 15:28 -32. Theme Statement: Love is the very heart of God. However, understanding the meaning of the para- ble of the prodigal son will enable the church to bet- ter demonstrate his love to the culture that we live in. In this chapter we see how the waves of influence, moving outward touch the outermost fringe of human- ity. There are three ways the father's heart can touch others through us. 1. Hearing God's Heart. 2. Having God's Heart. 3. Hosting God's Heart- felt celebration. Leon Pomeroy, Pastor PETERSBURG FREE METHODIST CHURCH 202 E.

These things can easily choke out the Life of God in us. But praise God, "But seek ye first the King- dom of God, and His righ- teousness; and all these things will be added unto you" (Matthew 6:33). What things will be add- ed? God's order back into our lives—a peace that passes all understanding—He is in con- trol. Questions regarding church events, call 812-582- 8896. Mailing Address: P.O.

Ac- cording to Romans 16:1-2, there are three things we can do. We can be a sister to those around us—treat them like family, and show true love and care to them. We can be servants—en- courage those around us, show true hospitality, be kind and serve others well. Last, we are called to be saints—reflecting the glory of our Lord more and more as we serve Him. Our minds can become like Christ. Upcoming activities and services • Father's Day, Sunday, June 17.

God's servant and friend to humanity, George Bruce, Pastor MAIN STREET PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH 10th and Main Streets, Petersburg 812-354-6844 Sunday worship 10 :30 a.m.; Youth group Monday evening at 6 p.m. Come vis- it us, our doors are always open to you. Pentecost Petals The Pantheon, dedicated in 126 A.D. as the home of ancient Roman gods, is now a Catholic basilica. In a tra- dition dating back to the sev- enth century, on Pentecost Sunday thousands of rose petals are dropped through the roof's opening onto wor- shippers below. The red pet- als symbolize the Holy Spir- it descending on Jesus' disci- ples, as well as the blood Je- sus shed on the cross. To accomplish this "rose rain," five firefighters climb to the roof after mass. While the choir sings the ancient hymn Veni Creator Spiri- tus ("Come Creator Spir- it"), firefighters empty sev- en bags of petals through the building's 27-foot-wide ocu- lus, or eye in the sky. Office hours: 9 a.m.-noon, Monday-Friday. Boyd Heldring, Pastor Amy Melhiser, Secretary HUNTINGBURG HOLINESS CHURCH 813 N.

The parking lot to the church was filling up quickly. I noticed as I got out of my car that fellow church members were whispering among themselves as they walked to the church. As I got closer I saw a man leaned up against the wall outside the church. He was almost laying down as if he was asleep. He had on a long trench coat that was almost in shreds and a hat topped his head, pulled down so you couldn't see his face. He wore shoes that looked 30 years old, too small for his feet, with holes all over them, his toes stuck out. I as- sumed this man was home- less, and asleep, so I walked on by through the doors of the Church. Someone brought up the man who was laying out- side. People snickered and gossiped, but no one both- ered to ask him to come in, including me. A few mo- ments later church began. We all waited for the Preach- er to take his place, and to give us The Word, when the doors to the church opened. In came the homeless man, walking down the aisle with his head down. People gasped and whis- pered and made faces. He made his way down the aisle and up onto the pulpit. When he took off his hat and coat my heart sank. There stood our preacher... he was the "homeless man." No one said a word... the room was silent and still. Then the preacher took his Bible and laid it on the stand. "Folks, I don't think I have to tell you what I'm preach- ing about today." Then he started singing the words to this song—"If I can help somebody as I pass along, If I can cheer somebody with a word or song, If I can show somebody that he's traveling wrong, Then my living shall not be in vain"—Author Un- known. "This is my command- ment, that you love one an- other as I have loved you" ( John 15:12). We invite all of you to come and worship with us.
