Live the Word to Sunday, a Lectionary Discussion
Preparing the way for the Lord, to let God’s Word work in your life during the week to make your worship experience more meaningful. Sermons during Worship services are often based upon the Revised Common Lectionary. You are invited to join us in a small group bible study, Sunday morning between the services, from 10 to 11 o’clock.

February 26, 2017 – Transfiguration Sunday
Entering the season of Lent as we turn our walk toward Jerusalem as Jesus leads us to his Glory, through Holy walk and on to Easter. Our liturgy leads us from this year through the Gospel of Matthew, the first year of a three year cycle. As you read this week, consider how the Living Word speaks to you. Jesus is calling you to respond to his Word. Consider the hopeful questions: Where does my help come from? Where do I see God active in the world? How is God calling me to live my life? These scriptures point us toward these profound questions and to faith and to the saving grace of God. It is our hope and prayer that your worship experience be enhanced as you gain a greater sense that God is with you in Jesus Christ.
