Join Us On Sunday

Upcoming Sunday morning worship services

Season of Pentecost: May 14 to June 24

Theme: How have the teachings of Jesus and Paul been changed/limited/co-opted over time? Even before the Christian Scriptures were collated and bound for the first time letters within it disagreed with just how much love and Grace God was offering when Jesus came to Earth. Jesus proclaimed that all were welcome and Paul taught that we have unity in diversity! We are unified in our diversity by a common thread – the golden rule.

Pentecost 4

    Scriptures: Romans 14: 1-23 Do not judge another

                       Psalm 15

Sermon:

Let us not be a hindrance or stumbling block!

Paul spent a lot of his ministry reminding people of the new commandment that we are to love one another as I would love you. Jesus served God and not himself. In this passage from Romans, Paul reminds the people who are weak in faith that they are welcome, but not so that they can place their agenda on others. Jesus calls us to advocate and care for those who are oppressed in our midst. We are called to stand with the oppressed, to be their allies, but not in the way that suits our purposes. What does it mean to be an ally?

Music:

Pentecost 5

    Scriptures: Ephesians 4: 1-16 The Gifts of the Spirit

                       Psalm 100

Sermon

Knit together by our common thread.

We are called by God to share our gifts of the Spirit to build up the body of Christ. Paul explains to the Ephesians that we do this by leading a life worthy of the calling, with humility, gentleness, patience and love, thus bonding us in peace and unifying us in the Spirit. Let us celebrate what we have learned, share are questions, affirm our gifts and witness to the fact that our faith in God is the common thread that causes us to rise all together, growing side by side.
