Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost
Worship at 8:45am and 10:00am
As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. –Ephesians 4:1-6
8:45am Chapel in the Woods casual service: Scott Roby preaching, “What is Wisdom? Just Taste and See”
- Sometimes the simplest things provide the most profound lessons. Even food - bread and wine - can serve as a powerful reminder of our connection to God’s presence.
- Scriptures: Psalm 51:1-12; John 6:24-35
10:00am Traditional Service in the Sanctuary: Rev. Wayne Chung preaching, “A Life Worthy of Living”
- Nathan comes to David and speaks for the Lord – “You are the man!” David confesses and repents – “Against You and You alone have I sinned and done what is evil.” Why not mention Bathsheba or even Uriah he murdered? If only we could lead a life worthy of our calling!
- Scriptures: 2 Samuel 11:26-12:13a; Ephesians 4:1-16
Sacrament of Holy Communion
