Join Evangelical Reformed UCC’s 10:30 am Worship Service in our Main Sanctuary and online.
Fifth Sunday of Easter
In 1 Peter 2:2–10, the readers are thought to have been Gentiles who became followers of Jesus. They are scattered throughout the lands of the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas under the rule of the Roman empire and its culture. This letter aspires to guide and inspire them in their daily lives as they are grown into the ways of being God’s own people, recipients of God’s mercy and inclusion. The language/theme of rocks/stones continues through this passage with Christ being portrayed as both a precious cornerstone for those who trust in him and as a stumbling block to those who don’t. This theme connects in part to today’s gospel reading, John 14:1–14. Jesus, as part of his farewell discourse before betrayal and execution, speaks words of reassurance to his disciples.
We will be sharing communion this morning. The Senior Choir will be singing. The annual meeting of the congregation will be held in the Community Room / Zoom following worship.
ERUCC also holds a worship service at 8:30 am in historic Trinity Chapel, 10 W Church Street.
