Sunday, October 2, 10:15 a.m.

World Communion Sunday offers us a distinctive opportunity to experience Holy Communion in the context of the global community of faith. The first Sunday of October has become a time when Christians in every culture break bread and pour the cup to remember and affirm Christ as the Head of the Church. On this day, we remember that we are part of the whole body of believers. Whether shared in a grand cathedral, a mud hut, outside on a hilltop, in a meetinghouse, or in a storefront, Christians celebrate the communion liturgy in as many ways as there are congregations.

“A devout life does bring wealth, but it’s the rich simplicity of being yourself before God…”
from 1 Timothy 6:6-12

Ah, the good life! Many of us work tirelessly for success, comfort, and even luxury… but do these things make for happiness? Or do we find our expensive things gathering dust, our large homes empty, and our bank accounts never quite full enough to bring peace and contentment? Join us this Sunday as Rev. Curt Preston asks, “What are the ingredients of ‘The Good Life?”

“He picked up the mantle of Elijah that had fallen…”  from 2 Kings 2:6-14

We are all familiar with the phrase, “trial by fire,” and it’s a situation most of us try to avoid… Elisha, however, witnessed the fiery, whirlwind ascendance of his teacher, Elijah, and found himself literally picking up where his mentor left off. Have you ever wanted to take action, but felt unprepared? Join us this Sunday as Rev. Curt Preston asks, “When does God call us to ‘step up’ into leadership?”

“Rejoice with me for I have found my sheep that was lost.”  Luke 15:6

There is no denying that people like absolutes. The world can seem easier to understand when life fits in neat and tidy boxes. But on our spiritual journey, there are some moments that challenge us to move beyond the surface and ask deeper questions. Can we be both lost and found? Sinner and saved? Join us this Sunday as Rev. Curt Preston asks, “Why does God never tire of looking for us?”

“So Sarah laughed to herself saying, ‘After I have grown old, and my husband is old, I shall have this pleasure?'”  from Genesis 18:1-15

The Bible has a way of making its characters come to life. In Genesis we meet Sarah, Abraham’s wife. She was a strong, righteous woman, yet she had grown old without being blessed with a child. When God promised to bless her with a child, she laughed. Is there a deep desire of your heart that has not yet been met? Join us this Sunday as Rev. Jerry Eslinger asks, “Why is Sarah laughing?”

“…all who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” from Luke 14:1, 7-14

Who doesn’t love a good party? Throughout the Gospel, Jesus attended dinner parties at many prominent homes. While always respectful, Jesus bucked tradition in terms of the guest list and seating charts, often shocking both guests and the host. Join us for Worship in the Park, held at Prospect Park, this Sunday as Rev. Curt Preston asks, “Who should we be inviting to our banquette, and who should sit in the place of honor?”

“…ought not this woman, whom Satan bound for eighteen long years, be set free form this bondage on the Sabbath day?” from Luke 13:10-17

Have you ever felt weighed down, stuck, or confined by a burden? Jesus met a woman whose ailment had physically ‘bent’ her into bondage, and isolated her from her community. In an outpouring of love and mercy, He healed her, and she praised Him! God wants this same healing for you and your loved ones, but sometimes our paths to healing are blocked. Join us this Sunday as Rev. Curt Preston asks, “When do we break the rules in order to fulfill God’s demand for justice, healing, and liberation?”

Can you imagine a force so great, so powerful, that is has no beginning or end? A being so immense that it surpasses a single name, image, or metaphor? The God we serve is truly the essence, the source and the aim of all things. Join us this Sunday as Rev. Curt Preston asks, “How can we praise God with our spirit, heart, mind, and body?”
