SEPTEMBER WORSHIP SERIES: HOMECOMING
HOMECOMING Part 2: In our sanctuary and online worship services, Pastor David Aslesen shares a message “Finding Home Again.” Scriptures for worship include the Old Testament book of Ruth chapter 1 and the gospel of Luke chapter 15 – two unique stories of homecoming. As we look to the stories of Naomi & Ruth and the prodigal son & gracious parent, what might it mean for us to find home again – in relationship with God and others – especially in times of desperation and in our need for forgiveness?
We honor the indwelling presence of Christ and invite all into a spirit of “homecoming” – our focus for worship and adult faith formation and discipleship for September. Scripture stories used in the series include God’s coming to earth in the birth of God’s holy child Jesus, Ruth and Naomi returning home in perilous times, the prodigal son welcomed home, and more. Share an invitation with those you know may be searching for a church home to join FUMC for worship either online or in-person.
