Brevard First UMC
We find ourselves living in troubling and anxious times. COVID-19 has turned our world upside down, a contentious presidential election looms in the near future, and social unrest has at times led to violence in some of our cities.
So, where do we turn? Where do we find resolution and peace? How do we keep the faith?
Once again from last week, the author of Hebrews has a good word for our times: “Let us hold fast to all that brings us together… stirring up one another to love and do good works… encouraging one another” (Hebrews 10:19-25).
What a good reminder that first and above all, for Christians it is Christ who is our Lord and example for living and loving and serving. Yes, even against the things that distract and divide us and make us anxious.
Brevard First UMC is not holding in-person worship in our church sanctuary during the governor’s guidelines for gathering. However, we are still worshiping together at 11 a.m. on Sundays through two media outlets. The live service is broadcast over WSQL radio (1240 AM and 103 FM) and also on the church Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/BrevardFirstUnitedMethodistChurch.
Also, we offer an outdoor worship service at 10 a.m. We are meeting outside at the church this Sunday, weather permitting. Bring your lawn chair and sunshade or stay in your car.
Lutheran Church Of The Good Shepherd
The worship theme for Sunday, Sept. 13, will be “Boundary-Breaking Forgiveness” based on the Gospel of Matthew 18:21 - 35. Jesus uses the parable of the unforgiving servant to illustrate the importance of paying forward the forgiveness we have received with those who are indebted to us. We’ll look at those important, connected words in the Lord’s Prayer: “Forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.”
The next outdoor Communion services will be held at the church at 8:30 a.m., 9:15 a.m. and 10 a.m., Sept. 20. Each service is limited to no more than 10 people who sit outside in a physically distanced manner and wear masks. There are no spoken responses. Each short service includes confession and forgiveness, prayer and scripture readings, a brief homily and the sharing of Holy Communion in a safe manner. Contact the church office to register.
