Worship Themes and Scriptures

Scriptures are from the New Revised Standard Version.
​​​February 24 - Seventh Sunday after the Epiphany. Luke 6:27–38. Love Your Enemies. "But I say to you that listen, Love your enemies,do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you. . . . Do to others as you would have them do to you."

March 3 - Last Sunday after the Epiphany, Transfiguration Sunday, World Hunger Emphasis. Luke 9:28–43a. Experience the Mountaintop. Now about eight days after these sayings Jesus took with him Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray. . . . Suddenly they saw two men, Moses and Elijah, talking to him. They appeared in glory and were speaking of his departure, which he was about to accomplish in Jerusalem.

March 10 - First Sunday in Lent. Luke 4:1–13. Be Led by the Spirit. Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit in the wilderness, where for forty days he was tempted by the devil.

March 17 - Second Sunday in Lent. Luke 13:31–35. Boldly Persevere. "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often have I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing!"
