November Worship Themes

This month we journey from kings to prophets. Join us in the story of God’s people!

 

November 4th & 5th All Saints Weekend   Go Reclaim

Readings: Psalm 34:1-10, 22; John 12:27-28; 1 Kings 19:1-18

What do you hear in the silence? This is All Saints weekend and there are certainly voices of saints I wish I could hear again. Elijah’s story tells us that God can come to us in sheer silence too. Come hear of saints and promise.

 

November 11th & 12th Twenty-third Weekend after Pentecost Go Seek

Readings: Psalm 70; John 7:37-38; Amos 1:1-2, 5:14-15, 21-24

 “Let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.” In our verses from the Prophet Amos, we see Amos’s vision for God’s world. These few verses give us a working model of discipleship today as we work for justice and righteousness within our world.

 

November 18th & 19th   Twenty-fouth weekend after Pentecost   Go Walk

Readings: Psalm 90:1-8, 12;  John 8:12;  Isaiah 9:1-7 

Trust is hard. Trusting in peace rather than war is hard. Trusting that God will turn the world around is hard. The ancient words we have this week are still hard for us. God hasn’t given up on us. Let’s walk.

 

November 25th & 26th  Christ the King     Go Settle

Readings: Psalm 95:1-7a; John 14:27; Jeremiah 29:1, 4-14

In the restaurant business there is the joke, “if it weren’t for the customers this job would be perfect.” I think Jeremiah has something to say about this mindset. We often complain about how things have changed or are changing instead of seeking God’s path forward for us as God’s people. New times and places mean new ways of understanding ourselves and is always an opportunity to expand and innovate our faith and quite simply let God grow.
