Called to Speak the Truth

by | Jul 5, 2020 | Sermons

As we celebrate a beautiful Independence Day Weekend, I hope that you are being blessed with new manifestations of God’s grace and love.

While we continue our practice of social distancing, I want to invite you join us for worship on Sunday morning.  Not only will we share prayers and Scripture from Exodus 3:7-12, but we will also have an opportunity to sing together a well-known hymn, “Come, Christians, Join to Sing” (#150):

1  Come, Christians, join to sing!    Alleluia! Amen!
Loud praise to Christ our King;    Alleluia! Amen!
Let all, with heart and voice, before his throne rejoice;
praise is his gracious choice.    Alleluia! Amen!

2  Come, lift your hearts on high,    Alleluia! Amen!
Let praises fill the sky;        Alleluia! Amen!
He is our Guide and Friend; to us he’ll condescend;
his love shall never end.        Alleluia! Amen!

3  Praise yet our Christ again,    Alleluia! Amen!
Life shall not end the strain;    Alleluia! Amen!
On heaven’s blissful shore,    his goodness we’ll adore,
singing forevermore,        “Alleluia! Amen!”

Although we are unfortunately unable to gather for in-person worship at this time, it will be a joy to have you participate with us through our online platform.

Throughout these days, please stay safe and well as we shelter-in-place.  Enjoy these summer days . . . and may God embrace you with grace, love, and peace.

Blessings,
tom

Baptism of the Lord Sunday – 1/10/21

While our pocket calendars remind us that tomorrow is the second Sunday of January, the liturgical calendar highlights for us that we will be celebrating Baptism of the Lord Sunday, where we not only remember Christ’s baptism, but our own as well, for our baptism is rooted in Christ, and it marks us as God’s people.

The Word in the World – 1/3/21

Because God inspires us to sing a new song to the Lord, we will share in the gift of music, and participate in the responsive readings through the liturgy.
