Weekly Gospel & Sermon from Messiah
October 17, 2021
"...it is not so among you... whoever wishes to be great among you must be your servant." Mark 10:43
We're a Reconciling in Christ congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. We worship on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. (When we aren't worshipping online only, as we are now.) All are welcome! We strive to be a place of radical hospitality and caring with a passion for justice and service.
Our worship is Lutheran liturgy shaped by ancient practices as well as newer traditions, full of scripture, prayer, holy communion, song, and music. We include persons of all ages in our worship time, and we address the issues of today honestly and with hope. Sunday School and Adult Forum also happen each week.
Welcoming You, Wherever You Are on the Journey of Faith
Maybe you've driven by our building on Colorado Blvd many times. It's a wonderful space, but as we've all learned, the church is not a building - not really. It is community of people loved by God, called and sent to care for one another and for the world around them. Multi-generational, we worship as newborns and nonagenarians. We sing together, pray together, explore the Word of God together, serve together, and live in the mystery of a God who is in, with and under all that is.
We believe that scripture is true and to be taken seriously, but not always to be understood literally. We participate in an ancient form of worship that is not dull and distant but speaks to the deepest places of our hearts and connects us with Christians throughout time and space.
We believe that God does not discriminate and neither do we. All are welcome in this place we call our church home. We would be privileged to have you join us for worship on Sunday.
Come and worship - and discover more about Jesus and about yourself as beloved of God and disciple of Christ.
