Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost
Sermon Title: "A Great Cloud of Witnesses"
Scriptures: Deuteronomy 26:1-11 and Hebrews 12:1-12
Fortunately, we do not have to reinvent the faith every generation. We stand in a long line of faithful witnesses and believers who may be our encouragement in difficulty and times of distress as we seek to “contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints.” (Jude 1:3) God calls us to press on toward the prize, not becoming weary or losing heart.
We look forward to you sharing with us for worship!
Meet Pastor DougOur Pastor, Rev. Dr. Douglas (Doug) Nagel, has been an inspiration to our community and our congregation. Rev. Nagel's sermons are full of insightful stories that have real-life meaning and scriptural relevance, all while being engaging and full of life-force.
Hebrews 12:1-2, 20-24, 1 John 1:1-3 and 1 Corinthians 12:7, 3:21-23
Communion is fellowship: fellowship with God, fellowship with other believers here on earth, but also a fellowship with the Church Triumphant, those who have gone to be with the Lord and with whom we will be reunited someday. This is both our present experience and our future hope that God has given us in Christ.
