Saturday, August 3, 2019 (Worship Service at 6:00 p.m.) 


Sunday, August 4, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.) Eighth Sunday of Pentecost ~ Today’s texts offer instruction and encouragement for all who are occasionally overwhelmed by the “unhappy business” of life.  Jesus urges us to take care and be on guard against all kinds of greed.  We who have died with Christ in holy baptism have also been raised with him and are encouraged to elevate our thinking, seeking the “things that are above.”  To that end we seek the sustenance of the Lord’s supper and the encouragement of God’s word.

Sunday, August 11, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.) Ninth Sunday of Pentecost ~ Jesus says, “It is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”  It is God’s promise from the beginning—to Abraham, to the early church, and to the “little flock” of which we are a part today in assembly.  Faith, God’s baptismal gift, trusts the promises of God.  Have no fear.

Sunday, August 18, 2019 (Worship Service at 9:00 a.m.) Tenth Sunday of Pentecost ~ The word of God is a refining fire.  Jesus is the great divide in human history.  He invites our undivided attention and devotion. Today, in the assembly, we are surrounded by “so great a cloud of witnesses.”  In the word and in the holy communion we are invited yet again to look to Jesus, “the pioneer and perfecter of our faith.”
