The Order of Worship for This Sunday



Call to Worship 
(adapted from a prayer in Lectionary Liturgies by Thom Shuman)

From the beginning of time to the end of eternity, God has chosen to use power and majesty to love us, to redeem us, and to shape us as his people.
 
The King of Kings and Lord of Lords became weak in order to confront the strength of sin and death, confounding their ridicule with the power of the resurrection!
 
The Spirit of God rests upon us. May the power of the Spirit inflame us with holy peace, touch us with grace, and fill us with hope. People of God, let us worship!

Scripture Reading




Matthew 25:31-46 (New Revised Standard Version)
 

"When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats, and he will put the sheep at his right hand and the goats at the left. 

Then the king will say to those at his right hand, 'Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.' 

Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?' 

And the king will answer them, 'Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.' Then he will say to those at his left hand, 'You that are accursed, depart from me into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.' 

Then they also will answer, 'Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not take care of you?' Then he will answer them, 'Truly I tell you, just as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.' And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."

Thanksgiving Offering







Disciples Mission Fund Special Day Offerings provide an opportunity to highlight specific ministries as part of our faith celebrations. There are four Disciples Mission Fund Special Day Offerings received each year during Easter, Pentecost, Thanksgiving, and Christmas seasons.
 
From the very beginnings of the movement, Disciples have founded institutions of higher learning, encouraging students in their intellectual pursuits. The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is still committed to higher education.
 
On November 15 and 22, Disciples churches across the US and Canada will collect the Thanksgiving Offering, supporting 15 Disciples colleges and universities and 7 seminaries and theological institutions. Three are in Texas: Brite Divinity School, Jarvis Christian College, and Texas Christian University. This year, our higher education institutions are facing unprecedented challenges. Even as they work diligently to ensure safe and healthy learning environments, the financial realities faced by many of our schools bring added stress to students, faculty and staff. They need our support now, more than ever.
 
Please give generously to this year's Thanksgiving offering, continuing our tradition of developing leaders for our communities and the Church. Your gifts make a world of difference as Disciples continue our legacy of supporting education and our institutions of higher learning.
