10:00am – Worship & Agape Feast
Sermon: “The Scandal of the Works of Mercy,” by Rev. Dr. Rob Carlson
Scripture Readings: Psalm 100 and Matthew 25:31-46
On the Sunday before Thanksgiving, our congregation traditionally celebrates an Agape Feast or “Love Feast.” This tradition stems from the observance in the early church where Christians gathered each week to share an offering of “innocent foods” – fruits and grains – as a way of expressing that every meal and every aspect of our life as God’s children is shared. It is a celebration of God’s goodness and the ministry of the whole people of God.
