This Sunday: 5th Sunday Alternative Worship + Service Project (@ Hannaford Career Center)

Join us for our special “5th Sunday” alternative worship gathering this Sunday, 10am, as we meet at the Hannaford Career Center (51 Charles Ave., next to the Midd. Union High School). We will begin our time with a service of prayer and meditation in the Glass Onion Café room. We will then move into the kitchen where we will join together in a hands on service project—preparing a large batch of beets to be donated to the food pantry at HOPE (Helping Overcome Poverty’s Effects). Please bring an apron and cap/hair net if you have them (we will have extras). Worship begins in the Glass Onion Café at 10am. Refreshments and fellowship will follow the service project. We hope to see you there—all are welcome (invite a friend!)!

This Sunday: Luke 17: 11-19


“Ten Lepers,” painting by Bill Hoover

11 On the way to Jerusalem Jesus was going through the region between Samaria and Galilee. 12 As he entered a village, ten lepers approached him. Keeping their distance, 13 they called out, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” 14 When he saw them, he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were made clean. 15 Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice. 16 He prostrated himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him. And he was a Samaritan. 17 Then Jesus asked, “Were not ten made clean? But the other nine, where are they? 18 Was none of them found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19 Then he said to him, “Get up and go on your way; your faith has made you well.”
