St. Paul's Sunday Services will be held the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month at 10 am. Services are held downstairs in the church.
Please wear a mask if you prefer to wear one.
Father, please do examine my heart and let me know if there is anything - thought, word, or attitude - that is offensive to You. The enemy is so subtle at fooling me into doing things that seem okay yet are not quite in line with Your word.
I want to be sensitive to Your leading and the nudges You give when I've said or done something that isn't in harmony with Your ways. I want to trust in Your faithful love alone.
PLEASE PRAY FOR:
Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, Bishop Rt. Reverend Elizabeth Gardner, Reverend Canon Catherine Gregg, our first responders, the fireman, the law officers, the medics, the nurses, technicians, doctors and aides that care for the sick and injured. The men and women in the Armed Services and their families. The wounded warriors. Our brothers and sisters in Christ, our congregation and anyone who needs special prayers.
I want to know Christ and the power that raised him from the dead .... Then I have hope that I myself will be raised from the dead.
Jesus saw people enslaved by the fear of death. He explained that the river of death was nothing to fear. The people wouldn't believe him. He touched a boy and called him back to life. The followers were still unconvinced. He whispered life into the dead body of a girl. The people were still cynical. He let a dead man spend four days in a grave and then called him out. Is that enough? Apparently not. For it was necessary for him to enter the river, to submerge himself in the water of death before people would believe that death had been conquered.
But after he did, after he came out on the other side of death's river, it was time to sing ... it was time to celebrate.
(Grace for the Moment -
May all with birthdays and anniversaries be filled with love and grace.
Lord God, we praise you for those riches of our creation that we will never see:
For starts whose light will never will never reach the earth;
For species of living things that were born, that flourished and perished before humankind appeared in the world;
For patterns and colors in the flowers, which only insect eyes are able to see;
For strange, high music that humans can never hear.
Lord God, you see everything that you have made and behold that it is very good.
Gracious Lord, the air sings with songs of glory, water flashes silver with creation, and the forests bloom with leaves for healing nations: May your light and love fill our hearts and souls and minds, that we may share your love with the world.
Prayers for all in the world in need of healing, hope and light.
St. Paul's is reaching out to others:
Food Drive is ongoing so please bring nonperishable food items to the worship services, as we need to help feed people in Virginia City and the nearby areas.
Thank you for your generosity.
