We can’t think of many good reasons to intentionally let down your best friend. Yet Pastor Charles Webb talks about a good reason today in his sermon, “Matthias Got Up!” This week’s sermon and worship focuses upon Mark 2:2-12 and the story of the man with paralysis who finds himself before Jesus. We don’t know the exact name or history of the man in the scripture, but Rev. Webb gives him a name and story in helping us relate to ways that we can be spiritually paralyzed—and what to do about it.
Our worship this week is 29 minutes long, designed for you to join as works for you, in worship, song, prayer, our message, and communion. We hope that you'll be blessed by worshiping with DisciplesNet, finding ways your own faith in God can grow in theses trying times.
As we do every week, our closing moments together include a time of communion (breaking of the bread). We invite you to participate if you would like with some type of actual bread and drink you supply, or these elements held in your mind. You may also meditate as we tell of Jesus' invitation to "do this in remembrance of me."
