This Week in Worship


Sunday, July 27, 2014
Seventh Sunday after Pentecost


As Solomon prays for wisdom, we seek to more deeply know the treasures of faith. In today's gospel Jesus offers everyday images that reveal to us the reign of God: a tree that becomes a sheltering home, yeast that penetrates and expands, a treasured pearl, a net that gains a great catch. Even as we seek the riches of God's reign, the great surprise is that God's grace finds us first!

Prayer of the Day

Beloved and sovereign God,
through the death and resurrection of your Son
you bring us into your kingdom of justice and mercy.
By your Spirit, give us your wisdom,
that we may treasure the life that comes from Jesus Christ,
our Savior and Lord.


1 Kings 3:5–12
Psalm 119:129–136
Romans 8:26–39
Matthew 13:31–33, 44–52


“Something Old, Something New” (Matthew 13:52)


Gathering: Gather Us In

Hymn of the Day: God of Grace and God of Glory

Communion: Build Us Up, Lord; Be Thou My Vision

Sending: Sent Forth by God’s Blessing



Donation Garden and Organic Gardening
Classes at MLDC


gardenMDLC is providing opportunities to learn and experience Organic Gardening while providing needed product to our local food banks. We meet once a week on Wednesday Mornings at 10:00 am and begin with a 30 minute session consisting of Organic Gardening basics and then put these practices in place in the Donation Garden and Orchard.


Currently we are beginning to prepare and plant for the Summer Garden. This includes adding an area for Pumpkins and Winter Squash in the Orchard area. In addition we will be planting Edameme, Sweet Potatoes , Asparagus , and Tomatillo Pineapple. In August we will be planning and starting on the Winter Garden. An option for experienced Organic gardeners is to adopt a Garden where you can grow your own produce for a donation to the church in which proceeds will go to our local food banks.

Please sign-up in the Narthex or contact the email MDLCDonationGarden@gmail.com
