Today’s Collect and Scriptures
Collect: Mary and Martha of Bethany
O God, heavenly Father, your Son Jesus Christ enjoyed rest and refreshment in the home of Mary and Martha of Bethany: Give us the will to love you, open our hearts to hear you, and strengthen our hands to serve you in others for his sake; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Lesson: Romans 12:9-13 Berean Study Bible
Love, Zeal, Hope, Hospitality
9Love must be sincere. Detest what is evil; cling to what is good. 10Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Outdo yourselves in honoring one another.
11Do not let your zeal subside; keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.
12Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, persistent in prayer.
13Share with the saints who are in need. Practice hospitality.
We are Reopening Slowly! In-person Worship services started on the weekend of June 27/28.
For more information about reopening, please click to read the REOPENING eNewsletter.
- To comply with social distancing guidelines, we’ve planned for 4 services over each week during the summer:
- 5 pm Saturdays
- 8 am Sundays
- 9:30 am Sundays (with music)
- 11:15 am Sundays, starts in September, if needed
- and 11:00 am Wednesdays
This is really just one more service than we had in the past. The new 11:15 am Sunday service starting in the fall is intended to handle overflow from the 9:30 am family service on Sunday mornings.
Over the summer months, all ministers at the liturgy will have an opportunity to attend and work through procedures for sub-deacons, lectors, acolytes, ushers, music, etc. in preparation for the official “Welcome Back” in the fall.
Online Worship Services will continue to be available on our Facebook page and here on our website until further notice.
