Sunday Schedule: 10:30 a.m. Indoor Worship * via Youtube, Facebook, Website

Join us for worship this Sunday! 
10:30 a.m.

If you choose to join us in person, please follow these guidelines:
–  Face masks/coverings are required while you’re in the building. While we recognize that many in our congregation may be fully vaccinated, we cannot and will not restrict our worship to only vaccinated individuals. So for the sake of the body of Christ, we will do our part to protect those who may not yet be vaccinated, are immunocompromised, or are children.
– While we have been able to sing when we are outside in the open air, singing is not advisable when we are in an enclosed space. Please use the hymn portions of our worship as times to reflect on the verses, enjoy the instrumentation, or hum gently to yourself.
– We will continue to celebrate Holy Communion with pre-packaged elements.
– For the time being, we will ask that if you choose to engage in fellowship with others that you do so outside. There will be no gathering in the upstairs lounge before or after worship.
We thank you so much for all of your faithfulness through the changes and transitions and uncertainty. We will continue to work together to follow Christ and love our neighbors.

Reading for Wednesday, September 22

Isaiah 33:10-16

“Now I will arise,” says the Lord,
    “now I will lift myself up;
    now I will be exalted.
You conceive chaff, you bring forth stubble;
    your breath is a fire that will consume you.
And the peoples will be as if burned to lime,
    like thorns cut down, that are burned in the fire.”

Hear, you who are far away, what I have done;
    and you who are near, acknowledge my might.
The sinners in Zion are afraid;
    trembling has seized the godless:
“Who among us can live with the devouring fire?
    Who among us can live with everlasting flames?”
Those who walk righteously and speak uprightly,
    who despise the gain of oppression,
who wave away a bribe instead of accepting it,
    who stop their ears from hearing of bloodshed
    and shut their eyes from looking on evil,
they will live on the heights;
    their refuge will be the fortresses of rocks;
    their food will be supplied, their water assured.

Gospel for Sunday, September 26
Mark 9:38-50

John said to him, “Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him, because he was not following us.” But Jesus said, “Do not stop him; for no one who does a deed of power in my name will be able soon afterward to speak evil of me. Whoever is not against us is for us. For truly I tell you, whoever gives you a cup of water to drink because you bear the name of Christ will by no means lose the reward.
“If any of you put a stumbling block before one of these little ones who believe in me, it would be better for you if a great millstone were hung around your neck and you were thrown into the sea. If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life maimed than to have two hands and to go to hell, to the unquenchable fire. And if your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off; it is better for you to enter life lame than to have two feet and to be thrown into hell. And if your eye causes you to stumble, tear it out; it is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and to be thrown into hell, where their worm never dies, and the fire is never quenched.
“For everyone will be salted with fire. Salt is good; but if salt has lost its saltiness, how can you season it? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.”
