Sunday, August 9, 2020 – Tenth Sunday after Pentecost

Welcome to worship! We hope you are having a blessed weekend of rest, renewal, and recreation.

Scripture Readings:

1 Kings 19:9-18; Psalm 85:8-13; Romans 10:5-15; Matthew 14:22-3

On Mount Horeb, where God had appeared to Moses with typical signs of God’s presence—earthquake, wind, and fire—Elijah now experienced God in “a sound of sheer silence.”

The apostle Paul reminds us that it is the proclaimed word of Jesus Christ that, through the Spirit, creates faith.


As the disciples battle a great storm on the sea, Jesus comes to them. When they cry out in fear, Jesus says: “Take heart, it is I; do no be afraid.”


Amid the storms of life, we gather to seek the calm presence of Christ our Lord who soothes our fears. In the comforting words of scripture… in the real presence of Christ in the bread and cup of Holy Communion… in the safety and community of the church, God grants us peace and renewed courage and send us out to be signs of God’s presence to others.

A bulletin and a copy of my sermon are available for you to download and print for worship.
