Welcome - Jeff Foels


Passing of the Peace

We encourage you to contact others in the church, to reach out and connect, to check in on those that might need help, and to let others know the help you need, in mind, body, and spirit, in this uncertain time.


Prayer of the Day


God, our source and our salvation, in love you made us and by love you have redeemed us.

Make your love for us bear fruit in our forgiveness of others, that in this life we may know your

all-embracing compassion and in the world to come receive the everlasting joy of fellowship

you share with your Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.


Scripture Reading: Gospel Matthew 18:21-35


21Then Peter came and said to him, “Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive? As many as seven times?”

22Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, but, I tell you, seventy-seven times.

23“For this reason the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his slaves.

24When he began the reckoning, one who owed him ten thousand talents was brought to him.

25and, as he could not pay, his lord ordered him to be sold, together with his wife and children and all his possessions, and payment to be made.

26So the slave fell on his knees before him, saying, ‘Have patience with me, and I will pay you everything.’

27And out of pity for him, the lord of that slave released him and forgave him the debt.

28But that same slave, as he went out, came upon one of his fellow slaves who owed him a hundred denarii; and seizing him by the throat, he said, ‘Pay what you owe.’

29Then his fellow slave fell down and pleaded with him, ‘Have patience with me, and I will pay you.’

30But he refused; then he went and threw him into prison until he would pay the debt.

31When his fellow slaves saw what had happened, they were greatly distressed, and they went and reported to their lord all that had taken place.

32Then his lord summoned him and said to him, ‘You wicked slave! I forgave you all that debt because you pleaded with me.

33Should you not have had mercy on your fellow slave, as I had mercy on you?’

34And in anger his lord handed him over to be tortured until he would pay his entire debt.

35So my heavenly Father will also do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother or sister from your heart

Closing: Prayers of the People and The Lord’s Prayer 

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come,

thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread;

and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever. Amen.




Sending
Wherever you are, and wherever you go, hold this with you:

Be in the world in peace;

Have courage;

Hold onto what is good;

Return no one evil for evil;

Support the weak;

Help the suffering;

Honor all God’s children;

Love and serve the Lord, 

Rejoicing in the power of the Holy Spirit.


May God, who creates, redeems, and sustains, keep you steadfast in faith,

buoyant in hope, and abounding in love. And the blessing of God, Father, Son,

and Holy Spirit, be among you and remain with you always.


Alelluia! Amen.

God bless you while you stay steadfast in His Love!
