Sunday Bible Study
9:15 am Youth Room of Fellowship Hall
What does it mean to be in fellowship around Word-and-Sacrament? Holy Communion defined a congregation in the first century. How do we live as members of God’s Family....around the Family Meal in in the community? How does that family grow? What is the difference between a Country Club, a Corporation, and a Congregation? How might all this shape you as you live in Christ?
Each Sunday at 9:15 a.m. we look at the “Non-preached Readings” to ascertain their application for our personal lives and for the life of our congregation, community, and the world. Join us in the Youth Room of the Fellowship Hall after stoking up on coffee, carbohydrates, and conversation at the kitchen.

Fifth Sunday after Pentecost
A woman finds healing by touching Jesus' cloak, and a girl is restored to life when he takes her by the hand. In both cases a boundary is crossed: in Jesus' time the hemorrhaging woman was considered ritually unclean, polluting others by her touch, and anyone who touched a corpse also became unclean. In Mark's gospel Jesus breaks down barriers, from his first meal at a tax collector's house to his last breath on the cross as the temple curtain is torn in two. We dare to touch Jesus in our "uncleanness" and to live as a community that defines no one as an outsider.
PRAYER OF THE DAY
Almighty and merciful God,
we implore you to hear the prayers of your people.
Be our strong defense against all harm and danger,
that we may live and grow in faith and hope,
through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
2 Corinthians 8:7–15
Two for One (Mark 5:21)
