Please Join us for Worship, Sundays at 11:00
May 19 – Acts 2:1-21; Psalm 104:24-34, 35b; Romans 8:14-17; John 14:8-17 Pentecost is a day of promises fulfilled. The promised Spirit of God is poured out.
May 26 – Proverbs 8:1-4, 22-31; Psalm 8; Romans 5:1-5; John 16:12-15 Today we celebrate the name of God: holy blessed Trinity. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!
June 2 – 1 Kings 8:22-23, 41-43; Psalm 96:1-9; Galatians 1:1-12; Luke 7:1-10: God hears every prayer—the prayer of the outsider as well as the prayer of the insider. The attentive nature of our God is evident as God comes to us again and again in the word and in the supper. "Ascribe to the LORD the honor due the holy name; bring offerings and enter the courts of the LORD." Do it today!
June 9 – 1 Kings 17:17-24; Psalm 30; Galatians 1:11-24; Luke 7:11-17: The Time after Pentecost is a teaching time, a growing time, in the life of the church. Today's texts celebrate God's ability and intention to provide us with a new lease on life. To that end we gather today with the whole people of God to be instructed by the word and nourished in the blessed sacrament.
June 16 – 2 Samuel 11:26--12:10, 13-15; Psalm 32; Galatians 2:15-21; Luke 7:36—8:3: The enormity of our sin is surpassed only by the mercy of God. We come, repentant, to the table of the Lord. In the body and blood of Jesus, in the announcement of our absolution, all our sins are forgiven. “Happy are they … whose sin is put away.” Happy are we.
June 23 – Isaiah 65:1-9; Psalm 22:19-28; Galatians 3:23-29; Luke 8:26-39: This Sunday's texts paint startling pictures of the horrific—the demonic—nature of sin. The church's repeated celebration of the holy communion counters that tragic reality in a continued showing forth of the death of Jesus “until he comes.” It is a dramatic declaration of “how much God has done for you.”
June 30 – 1 Kings 19:15-16, 19-21; Psalm 16; Galatians 5:1, 13-25; Luke 9:51-62: We have no good apart from God. That makes our Lord's call to follow him an invitation to freedom. This is freedom to revel in the Spirit's fruits: love, joy, peace, patience, and the like. This is the path of life.
July 7 – Isaiah 66:10-14; Psalm 66:1-9; Galatians 6:[1-6] 7-16; Luke 10:1-11, 16-20: God is the source of our nourishment. Our Lord’s invitation to "take and eat ... take and drink" is a repeated one. In the holy eucharist, in the word read and proclaimed, in the assembly of the people of God, the dominion of God has come near. Rejoice! Your name is written in heaven.
Each week, copies of the sermon are placed on the entryway table. Please take one if it is difficult to follow the language, or if you would like to read it during the week. Children are welcome to take a children’s bulletin, available from the ushers each Sunday. The special bulletin contains puzzles and games about the day’s lessons.
