October 16th

Psalm 96:7-10 (ESV) Ascribe to the LORD, O families of the peoples, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength! Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; bring an offering, and come into his courts! Worship the LORD in the splendor of holiness; tremble before him, all the earth! Say among the nations, “The LORD reigns! Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity.”

Dear Union Church Family,

As I headed out of the house this morning (writing this email on Thursday) the sun was shining bright, and brilliant yellow and red and orange leaves danced and twisted in the fall breeze. The colorful descent of the leaves gave the impression of a magical shower of light and beauty – creation was singing the Lord’s glory! Early fall is one of my favorite times of the year. Mornings like this testify to the glory of God. When viewed with eyes of faith, one perceives the Lord’s weightiness (the Hebrew word that we translate “glory” alludes to the weightiness of God’s attributes), beauty and majesty. The Creator’s display of glory is meant to evoke worship from humankind. We were made for worship in word and in deed – ascribing worth to the creator, redeemer and, one day, author of the new creation without end.

I hope that you will join us for worship this Sunday, either in person or online at 10 a.m. Our weekly rhythm of worship is in keeping with the creational rhythm of pausing to sing, to pray, to hear, and to respond to the Lord’s coming to us in creation, and most fully in Jesus Christ. This Sunday, we’ll be listening as Jesus tells several Kingdom parables. Jesus tells his parables to help his followers get a handle on the meaning and character of the Kingdom of God that becomes a present reality through him. Will you make plans to take a pause from your regular routines to “ascribe to the LORD glory and strength,” and to say out loud, “the LORD reigns!” so that all the world might hear? After all, you were made for worship, and you will find it refreshing to your soul! See you Sunday – and be encouraged to invite a friend or relative to come along with you!

A Season of Prayer for our Community and Neighbors

The people of God, over the great span of God’s saving work from Old Testament times up to the present day, have gathered to observe special occasions for focused prayer. Sometimes the seasons of prayer are prescribed by scripture. More often, the people of God respond to the immediate circumstances of time and place. Moved by the Spirit, and the holy, righteous and compassionate heart of Jesus, the people of God act with one voice and spirit to cast their cares upon the God who is gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. To this end, you are invited to join in a Season of Prayer for our Community – local, statewide, national, and international. Wednesdays, 6:00 – 6:45 p.m. in the Sanctuary and Online from September 23rd – October 28th.

Fall Growth Group: The Kingdom of God

What does Jesus mean by the Kingdom of God? If “the good news (or Gospel) of the Kingdom” is in fact the most succinct way to sum up Jesus’ message, we best take the time to understand as well as possible what the Kingdom of God is all about. Over the course of nine weeks, we will take a look at a few different passages that will help fill in our understanding of the Kingdom of God. Join us Wednesday nights from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary and Online from September 23 – November 18.
