Educational Classes Today

Sunday school parents and children will meet in the Sanctuary at 9:00 AM for opening. The Adult Forum will meet at 9:15 AM in the Splash Room. The topic of discussion will be: Planning your funeral. Rather than depressing, it’s very caring to plan for your funeral so that your loved ones don’t have to make too many decisions during a time of trauma and grief.

 

WORSHIP INSIGHT: Creeds

One of the ecumenical creeds (Apostles’ or Nicene) is spoken as part of the assembly’s proclamation of and response to the word of God. The third and longer Athanasian Creed is rarely used in worship. Although the Nicene Creed was once exclusively associated with the Communion service, more recent Lutheran practice alternates the use of the Nicene and Apostles’ creeds. The Nicene is especially suitable on festivals days and during the seasons of Advent, Christmas and Easter. The Apostles’ is especially suitable for the season of Lent, with its emphasis on the renewal of baptism, and for Sundays for which the color is green (seasons of Epiphany and Pentecost).

Worship Insight: Gospel Verse

The Gospel Verse is sung by the congregation to introduce the gospel reading for the day.  We pay special attention to the reading from one of the Gospels as a way of

revealing that the gospel (good news) of Jesus Christ crucified and risen is at heart of all of the readings. The “stand-by” Gospel Verse is printed in the hymnal: “Alleluia. Lord to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Alleluia.”  These are the words from Peter’s mouth when Jesus asked him if he wanted to leave as many others were doing.
