When Jesus was put on the spot, asking if it was proper to pay their taxes to Caesar, he took them a step beyond, teaching the teachers new ways to give. Our worship today comes from Matthew 22:15-22, and includes special hymns and prayers…and a sermon by Audrey Borschel from October 2011 that you will not want to miss. Thank you for joining us!
DisciplesNet church works to bring the church to people not able to attend a physical church, as well as those who are uplifted in being able to connect 24/7 with the special faith resources we share online. Our work is to bring the Good News of God's redeeming love to the world.
Worship today is about 32 minutes, and includes a time of communion (breaking of the bread) where you may choose to participate, or simply meditate as we tell of Jesus' invitation to "do this in remembrance of me."
If you would like to share with us at the table that goes beyond all earthly boundaries of time, place, and structure, we ask that you prepare a piece of bread of some type and a drink, such as grape juice, wine, or water. As we pray, our prayers are given to extend to where you are If you are unable to eat or drink, you may want to use a symbolic gesture or mental symbol as you come together at this table of remembrance with us. (Scroll down for an Order of Worship)
We hope that as you join us for worship you will feel a blessing from being part. Please tell friends, family, and others you know about our online church that is here with doors that are always open, walls as wide as the world, and always room at the table.
