Hybrid Worship
February 6, 2022
Welcome to Worship! Whether you're joining by Zoom or in person, it's good to be together.

If you're joining from afar, take a moment to gather your elements for Communion.
We've been asking the question, "What does life lived with God look like?" It's a great question! Maybe this question is next: What are the ideas, actions, and values that liberate all of us?
Order of Worship
Adult Spiritual Formation - 9:00 am
You're invited to Spiritual Formation, in person in the Shadow Rock Multipurpose Room and on Zoom. During Epiphany, we're looking at how the life of Jesus might answer our Epiphany question: 'What does life lived with God look like?'

Worship Begins - 10:15 am

Word About Life ~ Luke 5:1-11
Once while Jesus was standing beside the lake of Gennesaret, and the crowd was pressing in on him to hear the word of God, he saw two boats there at the shore of the lake; the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets. He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little way from the shore. Then he sat down and taught the crowds from the boat. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into the deep water and let down your nets for a catch.” Simon answered, “Master, we have worked all night long but have caught nothing. Yet if you say so, I will let down the nets.” When they had done this, they caught so many fish that their nets were beginning to break. So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them. And they came and filled both boats, so that they began to sink. But when Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, “Go away from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man!” For he and all who were with him were amazed at the catch of fish that they had taken; and so also were James and John, sons of Zebedee, who were partners with Simon. Then Jesus said to Simon, “Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching people.” When they had brought their boats to shore, they left everything and followed him.
