We will gather on Sunday, February 5th at 10:00 am for worship on the Fifth Sunday after Epiphany. You can also participate through the livestream and recording at www.ststephenslutheran.org.
Jesus begins his three year public ministry in the Gospel of Matthew Ch.5 with the Sermon on the Mount. After the Beatitudes of last Sunday, Jesus moves into teaching about how ones good works are meant to glorify God, not used as a way to show we are better than others, or as a way to gain God’s favor and blessing. God’s blessing is given to the hurting ones, and we are to join in God’s blessing by serving our neighbor in need. Be salt and light and a city on hill so God’s love is shown and known.
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.
