Welcome to worship this weekend with the Lutheran Church of the Master for Reformation Sunday! We are excited to welcome today, Rev. Dr. John Armstrong who will be our preacher & presider! Let us offer a warm welcome. Rooted in the past and growing into the future, the church must always be reformed in order to live out the love of Christ in an ever-changing world. We celebrate the good news of God’s grace, that Jesus Christ sets us free every day to do this life-transforming work. Trusting in the freedom given to us in baptism, we pray for the church, that Christians will unite more fully in worship and mission.
I hope you have had the opportunity to download the resources for this Reformation Day to prepare your at-home worship spaces or worship in the building. I also hope that your sabbath is fulfilling, as today promises to be an inspiring morning. For our liturgy today, I invite you to please download and open the worship guide to fully participate as you, too, are a vital participant in today’s liturgy. Peace & Blessings Dear Church ~ Pastor Dave
