Pentecost Summer Theme

Empowered by the Spirit, we live by faith

Theme Write-up written by Matthew Reece, Director of Music Ministries

Our first Pentecost worship theme, “Empowered by the Spirit, we live by faith,” explores the profound connection between the empowering work of the Holy Spirit and the sustaining presence of Jesus Christ as the Bread of Life. This theme invites us to reflect on the teachings of Jesus. Just as bread sustains physical life, Jesus nourishes the soul and empowers believers to live out their faith through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

Through word and song, prayers and reflections, we are encouraged to deepen our understanding of how the Spirit enables us to abide in Christ and to embody his teachings in their daily lives. The theme underscores the vital role of faith as the conduit through which the Spirit empowers believers to live authentically and fruitfully as disciples of Jesus. As we engage with this theme, we are invited to partake in the spiritual nourishment offered by Christ, finding sustenance and strength to navigate life’s challenges with courage, hope, and unwavering trust in God’s faithfulness.


Julie, Thank you for the beautiful altarscape for the season.

Introduction Copyright © 2024 Augsburg Fortress.

Deuteronomy makes clear that sabbath-keeping is meant for the welfare of all. God delivered the Israelites out of slavery, so they should observe this freedom with a day of rest. No one should work seven days a week; even slaves and foreigners should be able to rest. Yet human beings can turn even the most liberating religious practice into a life-destroying rule. Jesus does not reject sabbath-keeping, but defends its original life-enhancing meaning. Our worship and our religious way of life are to lead to restoration: the hungry being fed and the sick being healed.

Scripture Introductions Copyright © 2024 Augsburg Fortress.

Deuteronomy 5:12-15

This portion of the Ten Commandments instructs the Israelites to keep the sabbath. The Israelites are to rest, and they are to allow their slaves, their livestock, and the foreigners living among them to do the same. They were once slaves, and so they are to treat their own slaves justly.

Psalm 81:1-10

Raise a loud shout to the God of Jacob. (Ps. 81:1)

2 Corinthians 4:5-12

When we carry out God’s ministry we do so not for our glory but for the sake of Jesus Christ whom we proclaim as Lord. The power for ministry comes from God, not us, so that we persevere no matter what, trusting in God’s power and promises at work through us.

Mark 2:23—3:6

Jesus challenges the prevailing interpretation of what is lawful on the sabbath and tells his critics that the sabbath was made for humankind, not the other way around. Healing the man with the withered hand is work that cannot wait until the next day.

Fellowship Time

You are invited to stay after worship for refreshments and fellowship time in the gathering space.
