Preaching: Pastoral Intern Rebekah Nelson Scripture:Psalm 24; Ephesians 1:1-14 NRSV Synopsis: After a year and half of not seeing familiar faces at church some of us may have drifted away a bit emotionally, felt a sense of isolation, or even questioned of our faith. The Apostle Paul wrote the book of Ephesians as a "welcome home" letter for the discouraged, that we are no longer strangers but fellow citizens with God’s people. As we begin to physically gather together again this summer, we will study Paul's hope-filled words in our new worship series, Come Together in Christ.
Current Worship Series:
We have been apart for close to a year and half. We have not seen some of the familiar faces in our church family either in person or online for all that time. Some of us are beginning to worship in person. Others of us are still worshiping online. While God can cover any physical distance to connect us to each other and hold us together, we may have emotionally drifted away from the community of faith and are left feeling isolated or feeling a strain on our faith and our willingness to believe.
The Apostle Paul wrote his letter to the Ephesians for the discouraged that we are no longer strangers but fellow citizens with God’s people. This summer we will preach through the entire letter as we come together once again in person or in Spirit to discover at “how high and deep is the love of Christ” (Eph. 3:18) for all of us collectively as we journey together through the grand scheme of the gospel. Join with us this summer as we are Come Together in Christ.
