Join Us for a Service of Worship & Communion
Sunday, August 6, 2023
Scripture includes: Isaiah 55:1-5 and Matthew 14:13-21
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled, “Come and Get It!”
A priceless meal, Isaiah says, is what God offers. This meal can’t be bought or earned. It is given through Divine invitation to feast. This meal satisfies and celebrates a divinely-inspired and abundant life. As we partake of communion together this week, do we experience this feast?
This is the season after Pentecost in the Christian year. Having celebrated the “birthday of the church” through the giving of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost, we enter the Season after Pentecost for 24 weeks, to celebrate the existence of the church and recall her mission in the world. The liturgical color for the season is green, symbolic of the church’s growth and mission. On the first Sunday of each month, we celebrate communion, and the liturgical color changes to white to recognize the holiness and majesty of Christ.
