Here is the audio of our at-home worship for Easter Sunday, April 17, 2022. Charlotte Paris on the organ, and Donald Merricks on trumpet open the service with a duet of “All Glory Laud and Honor.” The scripture reading today is Luke 24:1-12, Luke’s version of the women at the tomb of Jesus. I hope your Easter Sunday is a wonderful experience of the risen Christ!
Here is the audio for at-home worship for Palm Sunday, April 10, 2022. The music and message are from the fifth Sunday in Lent, April 3, but the scripture from Isaiah 43:16-21 is applicable at any time. The choir opens the service by singing “You Are My Hiding Place,” accompanied by Charlotte Paris. The title of the message from Isaiah 43 is “The New Thing God is Doing.” I hope your Palm Sunday is glorious!
Here is the audio for at-home worship for Sunday, April 3, 2022. The scripture text for this message is Luke 15:11-32, the story of the prodigal son, also called the story of the Father’s love. This is an appropriate passage for the season of Lent because it shows both sons reflecting on their situations. However, only one son in the story repents and returns to the father. An interesting parable, especially when you realize that Jesus is telling this story for the benefit of both the Pharisees and the “sinners” and outcasts who are listening to him. I hope your Sunday is glorious!
Here is the audio for at-home worship for Sunday, March 27, 2022. The scripture is Luke 13:1-9, where Jesus confronts the problem of blaming victims for the tragedy that befalls them. But, he has some news for those asking the questions, too. We close the service with the congregation singing, “I’ll Fly Away.” I hope your Sunday is wonderful.
Here is the audio for at-home worship for Sunday, March 20, 2022. Kathleen O’Hare opens the service with a piano solo of “All Things Bright and Beautiful.” The scripture is Luke 13:31-35 about the opposition that Jesus is facing on his journey to Jerusalem. I hope your Sunday is wonderful!
Here is the audio for at-home worship for Sunday, March 13, 2022. Charlotte Paris at the organ, and Kathleen O’Hare at the piano open our service as the congregation sings “Come, Thou, Almighty King.” The message is about Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness from Luke 4:1-13. I hope your Sunday is a time of reflection as we continue this season of Lent.
This is the first Sunday of Lent and our church is resuming in-person worship today. However, we will continue to offer an online service here each week, which we broadcast to those who worship from home over GoToMeeting. Charlotte Paris opens the service with “Let Us Break Bread Together.” The scripture for this service is Matthew 4:1-11, the story of Jesus’s temptation in the wilderness. Kathleen O’Hare closes our service with a piano solo of “Precious Lord, Take My Hand.” I hope this first Sunday of Lent is a time of reflection for you.

Charlotte Paris opens the service with an organ solo of “All Hail the Power of Jesus’ Name.” The text is Luke 2:22-40, the story of the presentation of Jesus in the Temple after his birth. Although The Presentation of Jesus is not on a Sunday in the liturgical calendar, it is one of my favorites in the birth narrative. Kathleen O’Hare closes the service with a piano solo of “I Love to Tell the Story.” I hope your Sunday is wonderful, wherever you are worshipping!
