This Sunday in Worship -- September 6, 2020
   
T H E    F O U R T E E N T H    S U N D A Y
A F T E R    P E N T E C O S T

Scripture: 
Isaiah 61:1-4, 8-11

Sermon title: 
"The Year of the Lord's Favor"  

Like those who faced rebuilding Jerusalem, many of us may feel as though churches in our country are struggling, and we wonder if it's even possible to rebuild them so they will be around for more than another generation.
 
The words of Isaiah 61 call us to a different path, one of action and faith. The prophet's message was not a call to grasp at security or embrace complacency. These were words of challenge, risk, and service. Is not this message still relevant for us today?

Backpack Blessings This Sunday in Worship!
This Sunday, September 6, during our zoom worship Pastor Mitch will bless remotely the backpacks (and electronic devices?!) of our school children and the adults who are guiding them through this difficult first few weeks of school.  The blessing cards will be included with Promotion Certificates to be mailed to our students in the coming week.  There will be blessing cards available at the church office for others who would like to drop by to pick one up.



The Order of Worship for This Sunday



Call to Worship (based on Psalm 92)

It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to the Most High. It is good to proclaim your unfailing love in the morning, your faithfulness in the evening, accompanied by a ten-stringed instrument, a harp, and the melody of a lyre.

You thrill me, Lord, with all you have done for me! I sing for joy because of what you have done. O Lord, what great works you do! And how deep are your thoughts. We worship you today!

Sunday's Scripture Reading










 

Isaiah 61:1-4, 8-11(New Revised Standard Version)

 

The spirit of the Lord God is upon me,

because the Lord has anointed me;
he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed,
    to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners;
to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor,
    and the day of vengeance of our God;
    to comfort all who mourn;
to provide for those who mourn in Zion-
    to give them a garland instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness instead of mourning,
    the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
    the planting of the Lord, to display his glory.
They shall build up the ancient ruins,
    they shall raise up the former devastations;
they shall repair the ruined cities,

the devastations of many generations.

 

For I the Lord love justice, I hate robbery and wrongdoing;
I will faithfully give them their recompense,
    and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.
Their descendants shall be known among the nations,
    and their offspring among the peoples;
all who see them shall acknowledge
    that they are a people whom the Lord has blessed.
10 I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my whole being shall exult

in my God; for he has clothed me with the garments of salvation,
    he has covered me with the robe of righteousness,
as a bridegroom decks himself with a garland,
    and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
11 For as the earth brings forth its shoots,
    and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up,
so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise 
to spring up before all the nations.
