November 22, 2020: “In Christ’s Glory”

 

November 22, 2020
Today on Christ the King Sunday, we are reminded of who we have chosen to follow.  We give thanks for the gift of the church – the fellowship we celebrate when we gather together – and for the One who gives us salvation.

November 15, 2020: “Enter Into the Joy”
November 15, 2020
Today’s service focuses on the parable of the landowner giving talents (e.g. money) to his slaves to invest.  Some do better than others, and the landowner gets upset at the one who simply hides it in a hole.  If we put ourselves in the story, what are we doing what God has given us?  Not monetary or social status or physical capabilities, but simply being loved by God.

Weekly resources

See this week’s Scripture passages here, at the UMC Discipleship Planning page.

Each week’s Scripture passages are selected using the Revised Common Lectionary. This is the basis for many sermon topics, as well as church school lessons.

The Lectionary has a 3-year cycle, and includes readings from Old Testament, New Testament, and the Gospels. At the end of 3 years, the entire Bible will have been included! The Revised Common Lectionary is ecumenical (used by many Christian churches). See this description for more info.
