Sunday, July 7, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.) Fourth Sunday of Pentecost ~ God is the source of our nourishment.  Our Lord’s invitation to “take and eat . . . take and drink” is a repeated one.  In the holy Eucharist, in the word read and proclaimed, in the assembly of the people of God, the dominion of God has come near.  Rejoice!  Your name is written in heaven.

Sunday, July 14, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.)  Fifth Sunday of Pentecost ~ To love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind is to reflect God’s mercy in responding to one’s neighbor.  That mercy found its most profound expression in the “gospel that has come to you”—namely the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  That gospel mercy comes to us again today: at the font, at the altar, and from the pulpit. It is very near to you.

Sunday, July 21, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.)  Sixth Sunday of Pentecost ~ Perhaps the church, at its best, is “all ears.”  Almighty God urges the faithful, again and again, to “listen up!”—to heed the word from above.  So it was with Abraham and Sarah, with Mary and Martha, and the early church at Colossae.  So it is today as we join the assembly to hear the word of God, the words of life.

Sunday, July 28, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.)  Seventh Sunday of Pentecost Persistence in prayer evoked the admiration of Jesus and wins the attention of the Lord when Abraham intercedes for Sodom.  The life of the baptized—to be rooted and built up in Christ Jesus the Lord—is to be rooted in prayer.  God hears and answers prayer and so strengthens God’s own.  “When I called, you answered me; you increased my strength within me.”



​​ New Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church wishes you a blessed day

and we pray that Christ's message of eternal life fills you with hope and love!
