Psalm 95:6, Ephesians 3:7-20, Luke 11:1-13, 1 Timothy 2:1-2
Jesus teaches the Family Prayer of the Children of God. We call it the Lord’s Prayer. The preface to the prayer reminds us of the holiness and “otherness” of God, and also reminds us that we pray as a community, with and for others.
Join with God's people this week in 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.
