What would make a person buy property in a land about to be seized by the enemy? It is an interesting story..and Rev. Bob Shaw shares this today from the book of Jeremiah [see intro to the book of Jeremiah]. We hope that you will join us in worshipping God together, looking at how God helps us carry on even in times of trouble and despair. Worship is 30 minutes, including song, prayers, scripture, and considering God's word together.
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.
