September Worship Themes


 

September 9 & 10 Rally Weekend         Go Create

Readings: Psalm 119:33-40; John 1:1-5; Genesis 1:1-2:4

“We start at the very beginning. A very good place to start.” Once again we enter into our story, the story of God’s people in creation. Come hear how God called us into being.

 

September 16 & 17 Fifteenth Weekend After Pentecost   Go Sacrifice

Readings: Psalm 103:1-13; John 1:29; Genesis 21:1-3; 22:1-14

This passage is not about killing a child. This passage is about putting aside and sacrificing our own ego and demands. How difficult is this sacrifice for us?

 

September 23 & 24 Sixteenth Weekend After Pentecost     Go Bless

Readings: Psalm 145:1-8; John 1:50-51; Genesis 27:1-4, 15-23; 28:10-17

Jacob and Esau are twin brothers with a problem. Jacob is devious and tricks his father into giving him a blessing meant for his older brother. He is blessed. We cry foul, but God does something bigger. Come and listen.
