Trinity Lutheran – Richard Sturgeon

June 2, 2019 – Seventh Sunday of Easter. It is possible to hear in Jesus’ high priestly prayer, a prayer he offered shortly before his death, the petitions of the ascended Lord for his own throughout history — to our day — and beyond. Jesus prays for us. In holy baptism we become believers in God, have our robes washed in the flood of Christ’s forgiveness, and receive the gift of life forever with all the saints.

Preparation for worship 

Dear God, make whatever I worship in your place (work, financial security, health, relationships) worship you (Psalm 97:7). Make clear to me the difference between such idols and you, who reign supreme. Amen.

Living always in the joy of the Resurrection, let us join hearts and voices to praise the Living Lord!

Happy Birthday today to Holly Bower.

Join us today for our regular potluck following worship. Everyone is welcome and there is always plenty of food.
