Worship service – July 17, 2022 – “Living in Grace”

In our church, we don’t talk about “sacrifice” much.  Isn’t that what Jesus got upset about when he overturned the sellers’ tables at the temple? But when we study the New Testament, we find that we are expected to be “living sacrifices” to God.  The “living” part is a good thing- but the connotation is of something pure and highest quality, offered with respect.  Is that what we give God on a daily basis? 

Our services are 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 Romans 12:1-3 (The Message). In writing to the church at Rome, Paul shares his ethics with them. His focus is on a response to God, in the form of worship. But instead of a religious leader offering God animal sacrifices on our behalf, we are to offer our living selves spiritually in response to the grace of God.

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.
