September Services 2021:
Sept 5th: Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost
Liturgist: Allison Bascas
Scripture: Song of Solomon 2:8-13; Mark 7:1-8; 14-15; 21-23
Sermon Title: Dirty Hands, Clean Hearts
Theme: We will study both our passages today as we uncover what it means to be defiled in the Kingdom of God and how we might use this Wisdom text from Song of Solomon to be inspired to see the good in one another and help each other reach our full potential as children of God.
Sept 12th: Sixteenth Sunday after Pentecost
Liturgist: Janet Russell
Scripture: Prov. 22:1-2; 8-9; 22-23; Mark 7:24-37
Sermon Title: Who Do We Feed?
Theme: We read another Wisdom passage and study further along in the Gospel of Mark. Jesus performs several healing miracles in this text. We’ll hear about his ministry to the Gentiles and how he does an about-face when challenged by the Syrophoenician woman. What can we learn from Jesus in this moment? What can we learn from the determined woman? Come, listen, and be challenged to see things a little differently.
Sept 19th: Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost
Liturgist: Sally Campbell
Scripture: Prov. 1:20-33; Mark 8:27-38
Sermon Title: A Whirlwind or a Cross?
Theme: Wisdom is crying out to us again this week. Hear what message She has for us and how we translate it today with an assist from words from Jesus to his disciples and “the crowd.” We’ll study the two texts and ponder how we can respond in ways that are meaningful and righteous.
Sept 26th: Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost; C. Ann Gittings, Guest Preacher
Liturgist: Mary Bettinger
Sermon Title: TBD
