Scripture for Sunday
Weapons of war transformed into instruments of peace
I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord.” (Ps. 122:1)
Salvation is near; time to wake from sleep
The sudden coming of the Son of Man
Sunday Morning Worship
All Saints Lutheran Church is a congregation of people called by God to ignite passion for Jesus and transform their neighborhoods with hope and love. We believe all are welcome. Really, everyone. All kinds of people, in all walks of life, call All Saints home.
Worship at All Saints might look and feel a little different. We carefully and prayerfully select a worship theme each season, and we choose songs and liturgical elements that help communicate that theme and bring us closer to God and to one another.
All worship services are offered in-person in the sanctuary or via Facebook Live on the church’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/allsaintsdavenport at 10 am. Assisted Listening Devices are available next to the soundboard for your convenience.
The worship service can be watched at a later time on the church’s Facebook newsfeed or on the church’s YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCS2ArtcS2DWdwFD1gYXSBng/featured.
The new church year begins with a wake-up call: Christ is coming soon! In today’s readings both Paul and Jesus challenge us to wake from sleep, for we know neither the day nor hour of the Lord’s coming. Isaiah proclaims the day when God will gather all people on the holy mountain and there will be no more war or suffering. Though we vigilantly watch for the promised day of salvation, we wait for what we already have: Christ comes among us this day as the word and meal that strengthens our faith in the promises of God.
Prayer of the Day
Stir up your power, Lord Christ, and come. By your merciful protection save us from the threatening dangers of our sins, and enlighten our walk in the way of your salvation, for you live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Confession and Forgiveness
Blessed be the holy Trinity, ☩ one God, Love from the beginning, Word made flesh, light of hope. Amen.
Merciful God, we confess that we are not perfect. We have said and done things we regret. We have tried to earn your redeeming grace, while denying it to others. We have resisted your call to be your voice in the world. Forgive us, loving God. Give us your righteousness, the strength to put aside our failures, and the courage to try again. Amen.
Dear people of God, hear the good news: You are loved and forgiven in the name of ☩ Jesus, who has come among us. You are freed from proving that you deserve to be loved, because God’s love is given to you
as the most precious gift of all. Rejoice in this love and share it with the world. Amen.
