This Week at Worship

Good morning. A couple of housekeeping items to begin.

1. This Sunday (February 23) is Joint Worship at Trinity, 9:30 a.m. with Trinity Annual Congregational Meeting to follow. Worship will be shorter than usual (I promise) and note that there is no Sunday school. Please attend and, as able, stay for the meeting to ensure there is quorum. Also, please bring along your copy of the 2019 Annual Report.

2. After Sunday, we next gather for worship this coming Wednesday, February 26 for our Joint Ash Wednesday services as we begin our Lenten journey to the cross. Both services take place at St. James. There are two services to choose from: the first at 3 p.m. and the second at 6:30 p.m. These are not your typical Sunday morning worship services. Come alone, with friends, with family. All are welcome. Additional information is in the attached print announcements.

Our Scripture readings for this Sunday, Transfiguration Sunday, are from the Book of Exodus, Chapter 24, verses 12 through 18 and the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 17, verses 1 through 9. There are connections between our readings. Both reveal the glory of God; both take place on a mountain, and those who encounter the glory of God are sent down from the mountain to continue being God's agents in the world.

 

A few questions to ponder as we prepare for worship on Sunday: What does it mean for us to be transfigured or transformed by following Jesus? What does listening to the voice and call of Jesus mean in our lives? When have we been too afraid to act on the call of Jesus. Let's gather on Sunday to hear God's Living Words for us.

 

 

Have a great Friday and weekend. See you Sunday.

 

Blessings,

Our Church
