On Sunday, October 21, we will conclude the sermon series, Assembly Required, in which we have been exploring the fact that Jesus showed us how God’s steadfast and holy love sends us out into God’s beloved and broken world to make a difference.
Following the service, we will put that commitment into action as we gather for the annual CROP Walk to help end hunger one step at a time.
This week, worship will include readings, prayer, song and the sermon “Assembly Required: We Choose a Broken Heart” based on 1 Corinthians 12:12-26 and Matthew 5:1-12.
In Matthew 5, we are told: “Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” Those who mourn today are blessed because comfort will come someday. However, we are not there yet. When we know the way God intends the world to be, and we see the way the world is, it breaks our hearts. You see, as followers of Jesus, there is no comfort because the world is broken, yet we have hope, and we have reconciling work to do.
The Rev. David J. Hanna will be preaching.
Following the service we welcome all to join us in the Chalice Room, next to the Sanctuary for fellowship
After fellowship, we hope you will follow the strains of live music to the front lawn where we will welcome Anthony Fraiser who will entertain us before the start of the annual CROP Walk.
It’s not too late to join us, cheer us, or pick up an envelope, donate and grab a grilled hot dog, snacks and bottled water!
After 20+ years of CROP Hunger Walk, it’s not work anymore; it’s all fun! Donations will be accepted at the registration table and through the offering this Sunday and October 28.
We will gather together to register at 12:30 p.m. and begin the Walk at 1:00 p.m.
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
