Naaman was a mighty general of Aram with an embarrassing problem: leprosy— AND a meddling king. Somehow the king Aram served thought it a good idea to send him over to the enemy on the chance that the God of Israel might cure his leprosy. Once there, Naaman was prepared for some mighty series of challenges in order to qualify for this cure. But what Elisa told him was anything but that…and he was about to learn an important lesson about God.
We hope you will join us for worship this week when we look at Naaman’s story and compare it with our own. Worship is just over 28 minutes, with song, scripture, prayer, and a short message. As we do each 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." All are welcome at our table.
