How do we have the mind of Christ? Doe is come from putting ourselves as judge over people? Not so fast....we invite you to join us in this short worship and find a different way. Pastor Russ Smith will be bringing our message today, based on the text Philippians 2:5-11 and the story of Jesus entering Jerusalem in his last week, what the church calls Holy Week.
Our 30 minute worship brings the chance to sing, pray together, look at scripture and hear God's word examined. And as we do every week, we will share communion together at the end of worship (breaking of the bread). We pass along the invitation to join in 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.
