Worship this Week

The Second Sunday after Pentecost
June 11, 2023
The Holy Ministry Is Filled with Sinners Called by God
Jesus called his apostles to be “fishers of people.” With the power of the Spirit, they dropped the nets of Jesus’ love into the waters of the world to bring in many from the north and south and east and west. Jesus didn’t call them because they were “made for the task.” In today’s Gospel, he called an unpopular tax collector to follow him. Despite their weaknesses, Jesus still calls men to go and proclaim his love with his power and approval.
Prayer of the Day
Almighty and merciful God, you sent your Son, Jesus Christ, to seek and to save the lost. Graciously open our ears and our hearts to hear his call and follow him by faith that we may feast with him forever in his kingdom; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Readings for this Sunday
Exodus 3:1-15
Despite his reluctance, God called Moses to lead his people out of slavery in Egypt.
1 Timothy 1:12-17
Despite his grievous sins against the Christians, Jesus called Paul to be an apostle.
Matthew 9:9-13
Although the tax collector Matthew was considered a “sinner” in his society, Jesus called him to share the good news with other sinners.

Our Way of Worship

Our Sunday worship follows a worship pattern used in Christian churches for almost 1,500 years but in contemporary language and a variety of styles. The entire service is printed in an easy to use folder. We hear readings from the Bible and join together in prayer. We sing psalms and hymns found in a hymnal called Christian Worship which contains hundreds of well-known hymns. The high point of Sunday worship is the message or sermon, a twenty-minute explanation of a reading from the Bible and its meaning for our lives in the 21st century.

Some of our older members dress up for church, but casual dress is perfectly fine. The Lord looks at our hearts and attitudes, not our clothes. Members support the congregation’s work with offerings, but guests should not feel obligated to participate. Restrooms are located in the lower level of the church.

On two Sundays a month we celebrate Holy Communion, a special meal that forgives our sins as we receive the Savior’s body and blood in bread and wine. The Bible teaches that receiving Holy Communion with others symbolizes our unity in faith, and so communion is offered to St. John's members and members of our denomination.
