Hoping things could change, she came to see Jesus. Would she always be an outcast in her community? Was there any hope? Jesus was moved by her situation, and she found a different kind of freedom than the world offers…as also is so with you and me. We hope that you’ll join us in worship this week. Our text comes from the Gospel of Luke 13:10-17, and our message from Rev. Bill Johnson. Worship today is about 27 minutes, a time of worshipping God together through song, prayers, scripture, and considering God's word together.
As you worship with us, keep in mind that our 'pews' are very big: you will be worshipping with people in times and places all around the world. We like to think that although most of us can't see each other here, God sees our DisciplesNet Church gathered, perfectly well, and is in our midst.
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.

We hope that as you join us for worship you will feel a blessing from beige 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.
