This Sunday Rev. Rob’s sermon will be ‘The Revelation of God’s New Thing’. Why not join us? The online service will be posted on this webpage on Sunday morning, or you can find the link on our Facebook page or on our YouTube Channel.
On 5th July in our online Worship Service, we spoke of taking communion next week. This video was filmed last Monday and since then it has been decided not to have a physical Communion due to health concerns regarding Covid-19. Rev. Rob will lead us in a Remembrance Liturgy which will fulfil what Jesus said in Luke 22:19 – ‘Do this in remembrance of me.’
This week’s service encourages us to explore ‘Childlike Faith’ while we give praise to our loving, faithful, gracious heavenly parent – God. Rev. Rob uses Matthew 11:16-19 and Matthew 11: 25-30 as his texts as he discusses what aspects of childlike faith may be of use in navigating our way in the new circumstances that Covid-19 has hastened.
The service will be live from Sunday morning.
This Sunday Rev. Rob’s sermon is entitled ‘Sheep or Goats’. His text is Matthew 25:31-46. He writes, ‘I was reminded of this wonderful passage of scripture as I was watching the protests, street marches and sit-ins that have occurred around the world in the wake of the murder, by police, of George Floyd. It is the same call by Jesus as he speaks to the disciples and followers in Matthew Chapter 25. When Jesus talks about the sheep and the goats he is making a distinction between the sheep who follow the Shepherd and the goats who do not. I am reminded of the words to an old Christian hymn: ‘and they will know we are Christians by our love, by our love.’
The ministry agents across the Far North Coast Presbytery have worked together to create a service for our Anniversary weekend. We were honoured to be part of this. You can watch this service from this page on Sunday, on our YouTube Channel or on our Facebook page. We would urge all to be part of this combined worship and join in thanking our God for the gift of the Uniting Church.
As mentioned during last week’s online service, there will be no online worship this week as Rev. Rob takes a short break. However, Rev. George has prepared a written liturgy which will be available via email and online on the website. Rev George’s Service can be found under Weekly Worship Resources. Just a reminder that next week’s service 21/6/2020 is the Presbytery service and this will be online. More details to follow.
Today in the Christian calendar we celebrate the Holy Trinity. Rev. Rob uses Matthew 28: 16-20 to discuss ‘The Family of God’ as well as exploring the importance of the number three.
Please join us in worship.
