A sad young man, an overloaded camel, and abandoned families! This week we continue our journey through the Gospel According to Mark, focusing on the portions of the 10th chapter. Join us at 11:00am as we seek real life wisdom in our ancient sacred text…
Beginning February 16th, we will have a six week Bible Study of the Gospel According to Mark, gathering each week at 7:00pm in the Vestry to reflect on this short text. Sessions will be organized thematically as follows:
February 16th – Urgency in the Gospel
February 23rd – The Dark Side
March 1st – Jesus the Miracle Maker
March 8th – What kind of Revolution?
March 15th – The End of the World
March 22nd – Christus Victor
But he was just born!
This week we are already at the first Passion prediction and the Transfiguration. It is the first Sunday of the month, so we will gather at Christ’s Open Table in celebration. We’ll also collect non-perishable goods, particularly those with protein, for the Sayville Food Pantry, as well as monetary donations for the Deacons’ Fund, used to provide confidential assistance to members in need.
Heads will roll! This week we find Jesus teaching in his hometown, and also hear the final chapter in the story of John the Baptizer. The disciples get the instruction to “shake off the dust” and move on. What does that mean for us as church?
After worship, members and friends will gather to discuss the 3rd Phoenix Affirmation: Christian love of God includes celebrating the God whose Spirit pervades and whose glory is reflected in all of God’s Creation, including the earth and its ecosystems, the sacred and secular, the Christian and non-Christian, the human and non-human.
This Sunday, we continue our journey through the Gospel According to Mark. Our text includes a number of kingdom teachings, including the lamp and the bushel basket, as well as the mustard seed. We’ll hear a video teaching from the former Archbishop of Canterbury, and Pastor Gary will speak with the children about teaching stories. Join us at 11am as we worship and celebrate.
We continue our journey through the Gospel According to Mark. This week, Jesus is in two houses, his own and that of Levi, the tax-collector. A hole is torn in a roof, and Jesus discusses who needs healing, distancing himself from the “righteous.”
After worship, Pastor Gary will briefly present on the 3rd of the Phoenix Affirmations:
“Christian Love of God includes celebrating the God whose Spirit pervades and whose glory is reflected in all of God’s Creation, including the earth and its ecosystems, the sacred and secular, the Christian and non-Christian, the human and non-human.”
This Sunday we continue our study of the Gospel According to Mark, with special attention to Jesus as Healer. We will also celebrate communion and accept monetary offerings for the Deacons’ Fund and non-perishable food offerings for the Sayville Food Pantry. They especially appreciate food items that contain protein.
