Introduction for Reformation Sunday
Rooted in the past and growing into the future, the church must always be reformed in order to live out the love of Christ in an ever-changing world. We celebrate the good news of God’s grace, that Jesus Christ sets us free every day to do this life-transforming work. Trusting in the freedom given to us in baptism, we pray for the church, that Christians will unite more fully in worship and mission.

Theme & Write Up for the Season of Pentecost Autumn/November
written by Matt Reece, Director of Music Ministries
Open our hearts, Open our eyes, Open our hands
As we approach the end of the Pentecost season, our worship theme is “Open our hearts, Open our eyes, Open our hands.” This theme will guide us in a journey of spiritual growth and interconnectedness. Rooted in the teachings of Christ and the imagery of the vineyard, we will explore the transformative power of opening ourselves to God and others, fostering spiritual relationships characterized by understanding, forgiveness, and compassion.
Through our worship, we will reflect on the metaphor of the vineyard, understanding ourselves as branches of the same vine tended by God. This imagery will remind us of our interconnectedness and shared dependence on God’s love and grace. As we open our hearts, we will cultivate a disposition of humility and non-judgment, recognizing that every individual is a unique creation of God. By opening our eyes, we will seek to perceive the world with Christ-like compassion, acknowledging the struggles and joys of those around us. As we open our hands, we will embrace the transformative power of forgiveness and extend kindness to others, nurturing the spiritual relationships that bind us in the shared journey of faith. In this season, we will strive to embody Christ’s teachings by becoming vessels of His love and grace, fostering unity and renewal within our faith community and beyond.
By embodying these principles, we will actively participate in the flourishing of God’s Kingdom here on Earth, creating an environment of love, compassion, and grace that extends far beyond the boundaries of our congregation.
