September 1, Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost
Invited and inviting — that is the nature of the church. By God’s grace in holy baptism we have a place at
The banquet table of the Lord. When, by the power of that same Spirit, humility and mutual love continue among us, the church can be more inviting still.
Preparation for worship
“You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be blessed-(Psalm 128:2,ESV). God, may the primary fruit of our labors be love.
“Sing aloud to God our strength; shout for joy to the God of Jacob,” (Psalm 81:1, NRSV).
Welcome, Happy Birthday to Damian Adams, born on September 4th and to Steve Zydeek, born on September 7th.
