Sunday Worship

Romans 8:26–39 offers strong words of comfort for all who suffer and who see little concrete evidence for hope. The encouragement is to never give up because even in our weakness the Holy One is there to strengthen us with a love from which we can never be separated. Matthew 13:31–33, 44–52 gives testimony to the often hidden and subtle power of the Realm of God at work in our lives and world. The parables tell that the reality of God’s realm is at work now, and we are called to decide if this is the realm in which we choose to live.

During the Thought for the Day, we will be sharing in a blessing of the Bibles.

July 19                       

In Romans 8:12–25, Paul demonstrates the relationality of God and God’s people through the language of adoption. God offers believers a new familial structure in which they are rightful heirs to God’s realm.   One in a series of parables about the reign of God, Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 13:24–30, 36–43 invites hope-filled trust in God. There is mystery in how God plants, nurtures, and weeds to secure a harvest of promise.

God’s generous and surprising ways are addressed in Jesus’ parable of the sower, found in Matthew 13:1–9, 18–23. God sows the seed of God’s word generously among all people. The work of God’s realm will yield a certain harvest, despite the tensions and struggles among those who receive the word.

Jesus offers a relationship that leads to fullness of life, yet Matthew 11:16–19, 25–30 reports that many resist Jesus’ hospitality. Jesus likens them to two groups of children at play who can’t agree on a game and find fault with all that is offered.

Today we will reopen the doors of the church for Sunday morning worship.  As a small group meets in the sanctuary, we know that we will continue to be gathered in many homes across Frederick and the United States as well as Germany.                                       

For your worship center, you have a little sparkly thing to add as a reminder of the joy we share as a community in Christ.

June 28

Genesis 22:1–14, one of the most dramatic stories in the Bible, when read carefully, seems to have the message of trust in a God of goodness. Many find this story harsh: Abraham hears a command to sacrifice his own son Isaac, Abraham prepares to do so and is stopped in the last second.  Matthew 10:40–42, Jesus’ words provide a simple but difficult charge to those who wish to be disciples: to recognize Jesus and other prophetic voices in the most marginalized people in society, and to choose generosity.

 

The Rev. Carolyn Roberts will be preaching

Jeremiah 20:7-13 contains a lament from the prophet a prayer for help.  The language of our reading from Psalm 69:7-10, (11-15), 16-18 is also that of a lament or prayer for help.

In our Gospel lesson for this Sunday, Matthew 10: 24-39, Jesus teaches about the demands of discipleship, including the ways in which it places disciples under great stress in their families.

The Rev. Michelle Beadle will be preaching.  Her sermon title is, “The Blessing of Forced Choice.”
