The Bible speaks of us as having treasures in jars of clay, but do you ever feel like a “cracked pot”? Do you ever wonder what is inside? We hope you’ll stick with us for just over 27 minutes sometime this week, and worship God in prayer, song, scripture, and message that our worship team has made ready for you. Our prayer is that God will be glorified by this worship and that you will be blessed and uplifted by worshipping with us. We hope that you will share this worship with others in your life. We’ve put it together trying to think of people around the world, and also those who may not be able to get to a physical worship.
Our message today comes from Paul’s second recorded letter to the Corinthians, chapter 4:1-12, with Rev. Russ Smith bringing a challenge to us all.
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.
