"Come to the Table"

September 2023 Worship Series

"…when two or three of you are together because of me, you can be sure that I'll be there." 

— Matthew 18:20 (MSG) 

In this "Come to the Table" series, we hear the call to dine with Jesus — an invitation that means much more than a simple eating experience. It never was with Jesus. The table was where he fed people and challenged them to acts of hospitality that reflected God's way. When we say "yes" to the place at Christ's table, we accept a way of life that embraces God's definition of love, peace, grace, and joy. Let us celebrate the depth of communion to which we are called. To deepen our experience, we will be celebrating the Sacrament of Holy Communion each week and tasting a variety of elements for the bread and cup to help connect us to the world's diverse cultures.

"Come to the Table: The Table of Joy"

Rev. Debra Brady, presiding

Philippians 2:1-13 & Matthew 21:23-32 (MSG)

We celebrate our common communion table with people all over the world. Through Jesus, we are brought together, and no matter how we got there, believing in the host of this Table makes our joy complete! Let us share our stories, our compassion, and our sympathy as part of one human family that shares the love of Christ in the breaking of the bread!

World Communion Sunday!

United Methodists join Christians of different traditions to celebrate World Communion in October. World Communion Sunday began in 1936 to recognize our ecumenical oneness in Christ and bring Christians together in a spirit of unity and peace. The United Methodist Church congregations throughout the denomination also join together to receive a Special Sunday offering that helps students worldwide reach their full potential through scholarships, training, and mentoring.

Children's Sunday School Lesson for October 1, 2023

"Abraham and Sarah"

Genesis 12:1-9 | Faith Word: Faith

God made many promises in the Bible. The story of Abraham and Sarah is one of many stories about God's promises and people's faith in those promises. For the next few weeks, we will journey with Abraham and Sarah. Their journey will take them far away from home and bring many surprises.
