Twenty first Sunday After Pentecost
Sunday October 7, 2018
In the First reading, Amos 5:12-15, the prophet warns his hearers that fulfilling God’s demand for justice brings blessing, while corruption and oppression incur God’s wrath.
Hebrews 4:12-16, the Second Reading, reminds us that our thoughts, desires, and actions cannot be hidden from God, to whom we are completely accountable. Nevertheless, Jesus understands our human weakness and temptations, because he also experienced them. Therefore we can approach the throne of grace confident in God’s mercy.
In the Gospel reading, Mark 10:17-27, a law-abiding but ungenerous rich man asks Jesus what he should do to inherit eternal life.
May God bless our worship.
Saturday Worship Theme
A worship series entitled “Jesus, Teacher of Faith” continues with this week’s 5:00 p.m. Saturday Contemporary Praise Worship Service. The series focuses on the many ways Jesus taught his followers to live faithfully, ever trusting in God. Pastor Bruce Kaifler provides the sermon.
Annual Thank-offering Service—October 20-21
Sponsored by the congregation’s Organization for Woman (WELCA), next weekend’s Thankoffering Worship services focus on the contributions of women to the life and ministry of our church. The services are named for the special offering of thanks collected at the liturgy. Money raised through the offering is designated for the churchwide ministries of the Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America for women and children in need all over the world.
All are welcome to join us here at Trinity.
