On this second Sunday in Lent, we look at how we are changed by the calling that God has placed upon our lives. We look at the story of Abraham and Sarah and how God called them even in their old age. Our scriptures are Genesis 17:1-7, 15-16; Psalm 22:23-31; Romans 4:13-25 and Mark 8:31-38.
Water is a constant theme in our scriptures this morning. From the waters of Noah and the flood to the waters of baptism, water is a source of life, cleansing, and new beginnings. Our scriptures are: Genesis 9:8-17; Psalm 25; 1 Peter 3:18-22; and Mark 1:9-15.
In the story of the Transfiguration, Jesus is changed and the disciples are astounded. The voice from heaven says “this is my son, the beloved, listen to him!” Our scritpures this morning are 2 Kings 2:1-12; Psalm 50:1-6; 2 Corinthians 4:3-6; and Mark 9:2-9. What does is mean to “listen to Jesus?” Join us in this service of worship from Transfiguration Sunday 2021, February 14.
This morning, we continue in the first chapter of Mark’s Gospel. Simon takes Jesus and the disciples home for a meal following the Sabbath service where Jesus taught with authority and exorcised a demon from a man. As they arrive, Simon tells them that his mother-in-law is sick. Jesus, without hesitation, goes to the woman, takes her by the hand, and instantly she is healed of her illness. She then immediately begins to serve them. Join us this morning as Pastor Wayne…
