On World Communion Sunday, we remember that regardless of nationality, we are all citizens of God’s country. How does that perspective frame how you think about taking communion today with people of all denominations around the world? In the United Methodist Church, we also take the occasion of World Communion Sunday to acknowledge the impact our contributions have to many students, enabling them to pursue an education that helps them reduce poverty in their communities. Wherever we live in the world, we are all connected.
Our services are now being held with in-person attendance, at 10 a.m. Sunday morning. Today’s service is provided below in its entirety in video format.
Our Scripture Reading is from Luke 4:16-20 NRSV. Jesus comes to his home synagogue in Nazareth, and reads from the writings of Isaiah a prophecy that (scandalously) he says describes himself.
Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is the one true Church whose faith we support with our prayers, our presence, our giving, our witness and our service.
Our offering is given to the mission and ministry of MHUMC. Remember our gifts come from us, as the people of God, for the work of God, to the Glory of God in the world.
Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is the one true Church whose faith we support with our prayers, our presence, our giving, our witness and our service. I invite you to give generously, as we worship God through sharing our gifts, tithes, and offerings.
The message today from Rev. Dr. Linda Holbrook is “God’s Country.”
Today’s service includes Holy Communion.
