Live the word to Sunday


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.

May 21, 2017 – Sixth Sunday of Easter

Discovering the empty tomb and the Risen Christ, we walk through 50 days awaiting the Holy Spirit to Pentecost. 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.

Acts 17:22-31 – Then Paul stood in front of the Aeropagus and said, “Athenians, I see how extremely religious you are in every way…”
Psalm 66:8-22 – Bless our God, O Peoples…
1 Peter 3:13-22 – Now who will harm you if you are eager to do what is good?”…
