Sunday Worship is Now Indoors

Join us for worship this Sunday!
August 1st, 10:30 a.m.

If you choose to join us in person, please follow these guidelines:
 
– As per St. Louis County mask mandate of 7/267/21, 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. Please make sure that you are spacing yourself appropriately when approaching the front to receive your communion elements and returning to your seat.
– 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 Tuesday, July 27
Philippians 4:10-20

I rejoice in the Lord greatly that now at last you have revived your concern for me; indeed, you were concerned for me, but had no opportunity to show it. Not that I am referring to being in need; for I have learned to be content with whatever I have.  I know what it is to have little, and I know what it is to have plenty. In any and all circumstances I have learned the secret of being well-fed and of going hungry, of having plenty and of being in need.  I can do all things through him who strengthens me.  In any case, it was kind of you to share my distress.

You Philippians indeed know that in the early days of the gospel, when I left Macedonia, no church shared with me in the matter of giving and receiving, except you alone.  For even when I was in Thessalonica, you sent me help for my needs more than once.  Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the profit that accumulates to your account.  I have been paid in full and have more than enough; I am fully satisfied, now that I have received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent, a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God.  And my God will fully satisfy every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.

Gospel for Sunday, August 1
John 6:24-35

So when the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they themselves got into the boats and went to Capernaum looking for Jesus.

When they found him on the other side of the sea, they said to him, “Rabbi, when did you come here?”  Jesus answered them, “Very truly, I tell you, you are looking for me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate your fill of the loaves.  Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For it is on him that God the Father has set his seal.” Then they said to him, “What must we do to perform the works of God?”  Jesus answered them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent.”  So they said to him, “What sign are you going to give us then, so that we may see it and believe you? What work are you performing?  Our ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’”  Then Jesus said to them, “Very truly, I tell you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”  They said to him, “Sir, give us this bread always.”

Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
