Worship Information (Sept – Nov 2018)

By September 12, 2018 No Comments

This program year we will be following prescribed texts from the “Narrative Lectionary.”

The Narrative Lectionary is a four-year cycle of readings. On the Sundays from September through May each year the texts follow the sweep of the biblical story, from Creation through the early Christian church.

The texts show the breadth and variety of voices within Scripture. They invite people to hear the stories of Abraham and Sarah, Moses and the prophets, Jesus, and Paul. Listening to the many different voices within Scripture enriches preaching and the life of faith.

In addition, we will be celebrating the gifts of our multi-generation church family by including several “inter-generational services” in the forthcoming months.  Our prayer for these services is that they are celebrations that encourage the building of our Allin Church community!

The following is our scripture schedule for worship, Christian education, and bible study through Thanksgiving…
