Each week, we read Scripture as part of our worship service. Grace follows the Revised Common Lectionary, a three year cycle of Scripture readings which many Christian churches use. You can find out the selections for the coming Sunday and learn more about the lectionary here.
Most weeks at worship, there is a lesson from the Old Testament, a psalm that is read or sung responsively, a New Testament lesson, and a Scripture from one of the four Gospels- Matthew, Mark, Luke or John. Typically, the sermon will be based on one or more of these lessons.
Our congregation offers additional Bible Study opportunities during the week on Wednesdays. There is a group that meets at 11 am, bringing their Bibles and a bag lunch, for fellowship after the study, and another group at 7:30 in the evening. Please check the church calendar for the weeks these studies are offered.
The weekday Bible Studies will use many resources, including ones provided by the ELCA. Daily Discipleship and Daily Faith Practices are online downloadable Bible studies based on the lectionary used at Sunday worship. Daily Discipleship is based on the Gospel Lesson and Daily Faith Practices is based on the Second Lesson. More information can be found here, on the ELCA website.
Women of the ELCA (WELCA) meet the first Tuesday of each month from September through May at 10 a.m. Their meeting typically includes a Bible Study led by a retired DCE, a special project, and breaking of bread together.
We welcome your participation and ideas to grow in the study of Holy Scripture.
