Lectionary 13 A 2017 Slide 1 PresentationSunday, July 2, 2017
Fourth Sunday after Pentecost

Introduction

The welcome of baptism is for all God's children. This baptismal gift sets us free from the power of sin and death. In today's gospel, Christ promises that the disciple who gives a cup of cold water to the little ones serves Christ himself. From worship we are sent on our baptismal mission: to serve the little ones of this world and to be a sign of God's merciful welcome.

 

Prayer of the Day

O God, you direct our lives by your grace, and your words of justice and mercy reshape the world. Mold us into a people who welcome your word and serve one another, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.


Readings

Jeremiah 28:5-9 

The test of a true prophet

On either Sunday, July 9, or Sunday, July 16, we will meet in the evening for dinner, fun, and the chance to talk about the youth gathering.

Acolytes

Acolytes play an important role in worship. The word acolyte means "one who helps," and MDLC Acolytes do just that! These volunteers light and extinguish candles, collect the offering, and assist with communion and baptisms. Students in elementary school are encouraged to participate. Training is provided.
