Eighteenth Sunday after Pentecost – October 9, 2022

We gather in person / livestream / recording this 18th Sunday in Pentecost, Oct. 9th at 10 am. www.ststephenslutheran.org.

We hear the story of the Healing of the Ten Lepers, marked by the return of the one (a Samaritan – outsider) to give thanks. We will worship together and lift up the many thanks that we have to God through our singing, praying, peace-sharing and receiving of God’s love and mercy in Holy Communion.

The bulletin and Celebrate scripture readings and prayers are attached, so that you can participate in worship even if you are not able to attend church in-person. Holy Communion will be celebrated, so please have some bread and fruit of the vine ready if you are at home.

Let’s continue to be gracious and merciful with one another as we continue to struggle with a lingering pandemic.

  1. Masks are still highly encouraged due to our singing in church.
  2. Physical distancing is still highly encouraged.
  3. Holy Communion will be offered from Pastor Jim at the front of the church. You can still choose to receive it from the pre-sealed elements.
