Worship Notes               Third Sunday in Advent

Isaiah the prophet beautifully portrays that day of deliverance when God will come and deliver suffering Israel in Isaiah 61: 1-4, 8-11.  Isaiah’s is the same promise that Jesus will use for his first sermon in Nazareth in Luke’s Gospel.  God sends forth good news, especially to the oppressed, the broken-hearted, the prisoners, and the poor.  In the final verses, Isaiah breaks forth into a song of hope.  The Gospel lesson is from Luke 1: 46b-55 and is known as the Magnificat or Mary’s Song.

We are pleased to welcome new members this Sunday: Angela Brittain, Al Mannus, and Scott Harris.

Worship Notes               Second Sunday in Advent

On this Second Sunday in Advent, the prophet Isaiah prophet proclaims to Israel that despite their present circumstances, God has not abandoned them.   Isaiah 40: 1-11 describes how we are as vulnerable as grass, and therefore we are at the mercy of forces beyond human control.  Yet God does intervene with salvation and deliverance.  John the Baptizer opens Mark’s Gospel with a scorching sermon in the Judean wilderness.  John calls people to change and, as a sign of that change, to submit to a baptism for repentance of sins as we read Mark 1: 1-8.                           We will share communion this morning.  If you are worshipping at home, please prepare bread or crackers along with a cup of wine, juice, or water for communion.  You are also invited to light the second candle on your advent wreaths as we light the candles in the sanctuary.

Worship Notes               First Sunday in Advent

Advent invites us to acknowledge times of deep belief, but also times of doubt. It calls us to remember when we have experienced God’s presence most clearly, and when we have felt deserted by God. It reminds us that our relationship with the One who creates is ongoing and we are not alone.  In Isaiah 64:1–9 the prophet Isaiah pleads with God to restore broken relationships with God’s people.   Jesus asks us to remember the promise of God’s presence in Mark 13:24–37. He challenges us to stay awake, be alert, and live in expectation.

Sunday Worship

 

This day we proclaim the hope of God’s eternal realm of justice and peace.   In Matthew 25: 31-46, Jesus’ teaching tells how, when God’s reign comes in its fullness the nations will be separated in the same way a shepherd separates sheep and goats.  Jesus’ disciples today are called to perform acts of mercy and justice to those in need – to live out God’s great compassion.

Sunday Worship

Psalm 78:1–7 invites us to experience our lives and faith in relationship both to those who have gone before and those who go after. Each generation has a responsibility to share the story of liberation and justice they have received. Jesus’ parable of ten bridesmaids in Matthew 25: 1-13 opens reflection on living into God’s purpose.
