Jesus had a way of turning things around, and in our worship today we look at how gifts that a giver might see as very great, might not amount to all that much after all in God's eyes---when other gifts may seem small to others, but turn out to be the greatest of all.
This week we are blessed to have Rev. Charles Webb bringing our message, speaking from Mark 12:38-44: the story of the widow's mite.
Our worship today is 30 minutes long, designed for you to join as best works for you. We hope that you'll be blessed by worshiping with DisciplesNet, finding ways your own faith in God can grow in trying times.
As we do every week, our time together 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.
