"By Who's Authority?"

Jesus' parable about two sons who don't do what they say reveals surprises in the reign of God. In the reading from Ezekiel the people claim the ways of the Lord are unfair, while God offers repentance and new life. Paul urges us to look to Christ as a model of humility, putting the interests of others above our own. Nourishing by the broken bread and shared cup, we offer our lives for the sake of our needy world.

If you would like to support the efforts for the wildfires on the West Coast or now the storms in the Gulf Coast region, please include your donations with your offering and mark them for either or both. The Church and Community Committee is seeking donations for Lutheran World Relief right now as well. We normally collect items for health kits or school kits but due to the pandemic we are not able to collect the items so they are asking for monetary donations which can be sent to the church or included in your offering. These are trying times for sure and we ask that you consider helping those in need if you are able. Thanks in advance for your consideration.

We continue to hold in person worship services in Fellowship Hall. We are going to continue to post the worship services each week on the Facebook page and send these emails out as well as sending copies in the mail for those who request them who don't have a computer. If any of you are aware that we are missing anyone, please let the office know.

You will find the scripture readings and the message for this week in the links below. I offer you the peace of Christ and pray that you are all safe. Keep yourselves in prayer and scripture to keep yourselves strong and able to overcome any concerns that you are facing.
