Bible Studies at MDLC
Sunday Bible Study
From the beginning of Christian worship, sermons were primarily preached on the Gospel readings. The Gospels were written to be foundations and vehicles for preaching. But the Old Testament and Second (New Testament) Lessons of the Liturgy often contain material at least as interesting and important as the Gospel.
This Week in Worship
Sunday, August 24, 2014
Almighty and everlasting God, you gave to your apostle Bartholomew grace truly to believe and courageously to preach your word. Grant that your church may proclaim the good news to the ends of the earth, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of the messenger who announces peace, who brings good news, who announces salvation. (Isaiah 52:7)
“Take a Closer Look” (John 1:46)
