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.

Worship Notes

Our first reading is from I Thessalonians 2: 9-11 This reading offers a character reference of those who have shared the gospel with this community. Their words and actions witnessed to God’s work in and through them. Jesus insisted that word and deed corroborate with each other in Matthew 23: 1-12.   Disciples are credible witnesses when their loving actions mirror their words.

We will share in Holy Communion on All Saints Sunday as we remember in prayer those members of the congregation and friends and family members who have died in the past year.  Please have a candle at your worship centers to light as you remember those who have died in the past year.

Worship Notes:

As the community of Jesus’ disciples, we are called to find ways to proclaim the love of God to our neighbors.  The Gospel lesson in Matthew 22: 34-46 reminds the emerging Christian community of Jesus’ rules – unconditional love for God and neighbor. Today’s reading from the Hebrew scriptures, Deuteronomy 34: 1-12, brings to an end the life of Moses.  He is given a glimpse of the promised land, but he will not cross over into it.

Felecia Bishop will be speaking as part of our Faces of Love campaign.

We will also be dedicating our pledges for our 2021 financial support of the mission and ministry of ERUCC.    Pledges can be made in person, via the web page, via mail, or dropped off at the church office or brought to worship this Sunday to be received during the offering.

Don’t forget to come by the church between noon and 2 to pick up your tasty treat lovingly prepared by David Howard.  A thank you for your ongoing prayer and support.

Worship Notes               

In Exodus 33:12–23 , we are privy to a conversation between God and Moses. Reminiscent of last week’s struggle of the Hebrew people with an idea or presence of God vs. a tangible, physical god, Moses also asks for proof of God’s presence – to see what God looks like. Matthew 22:15–22 tells the story of discerning taxes, where the stamping of Caesar on the coinage settles the question – “Give therefore to the emperor the things that are the emperor’s and unto God the things that are God’s” (v. 21). While this can be seen as an example of the separation of church and state it also harkens back to the wilderness experiences of discerning and following God’s guiding presence.

Sunday Worship
In our scripture readings for this Sunday we are invited to reflect on what it means to be formed as a community of God’s people, committed to living out the ways of God. Exodus 32: 1-14 contains what is likely one of the most confusing and dramatic stories in the Hebrew Scriptures. It has been interpreted in myriad ways, but mostly as a cautionary tale of turning toward other gods. In Philippians 4: 1-9, Paul uses the Greek word ekklesia — which translates “called out” — to describe the early Christian church. He calls the church to stand firm in the faith, to focus on what is true, honorable, and just. And in all, pray, rejoice, and focus on all that is truly good in God’s realm.

Sunday Worship

Wandering in the wilderness, faced with difficulties of survival, the Israelites complain in Exodus 16: 2-15.  Despite their complaint, God graciously gives them the food they need.  Jesus tells the parable of the laborers in the vineyard, Matthew 20: 1-16, in which the master of the vineyard in which the master of the vineyard is shown to be incredibly gracious.
