16th Sunday after Pentecost

Holy Eucharist, Rite II
Sunday School

In last week's 1st lesson, the Israelites have left their bondage in Egypt and crossed the sea to the wilderness (probably the Sinai peninsula).  Not surprisingly, they begin to complain.

The second lesson begins Paul's Epistle to the church at Caesarea Philippi.

In today's Gospel reading, Jesus continues to teach His disciples using parables.  He is a bit more direct than usual, by putting his teaching in the form of "the Kingdom of Heaven is like..."

Readings for Proper 20, Year A, Track I:
Exodus 16:2-15
Psalm 105:1-6, 37-45
Philippians 1:21-30
Matthew 20:1-16

Laundry Love

Laundry Love

On the final Saturday morning of each month, St. Elizabeth's ministers to our neighbors by paying for and providing supplies for them to do their laundry.

As each month comes to an end, many families are simply "tapped out."  Laundry can be a significant expense when one must choose among paying the rent and/or utilities, buying food, and all the other necessities of life.

This is a ministry that even a small church like St. Elizabeth's can perform with a few people and a modest budget.

17th Sunday after Pentecost

Holy Eucharist, Rite II
Sunday School

Today's 1st lesson continues the story of the Exodus.  By now, the Israelites have come from the Wilderness of Sin to camp at Rephidim.  They had no water remaining, and complained bitterly.  With God's guidance, Moses provides them with water from the rock at Horeb. 

The second lesson continues Paul's Epistle to the Philippians.

In today's Gospel reading, which is a bit out of order, Jesus enters the Temple at Jerusalem and is promptly challenged by the chief priests and the elders, who demand to know on whose authority Jesus was acting.

Readings for Proper 21, Track I, Year A:
Exodus 17:1-7
Psalm 78:1-4, 12-16
Philippians 2:1-13
Matthew 21:23-32

Balloon Sunday

Holy Eucharist, Rite II
Sunday School

St. Elizabeth's annual Balloon Sunday takes place today.  We we attach mylar balloons to the pews (which the kids are welcome to take home afterwards) to mark the beginning of Sunday School.  At the end of the service, we will be given colorful index cards on which to (anonymously) write our prayer requests.  The cards will be returned to the back of the church, and each of us is invited to take one (or more) home and to add those prayer requests to their daily prayers.

This is also the 2nd Sunday of the month, so the Bishop's Committee will meet in the Parish Hall (downstairs) after the service.


14th Sunday after Pentecost

Today's 1st lesson continues the story of the Exodus.  Pharaoh's heart remains hardened against Yahweh's demand that Egypt free the Israelites, even through the nine plagues up to that point.

In preparation for the final plague, in which the first-born of Egypt will die, Moses establishes the Passover observation for all time.

The second lesson continues Paul's Epistle to the Romans, offering the commandment of Love.

In today's Gospel reading, Jesus continues to instruct His disciples as He prepares them to continue His work following the Passion.

Readings for Proper 18, Track I, Year A:
Exodus 12:1-14
Psalm 149
Romans 13:8-14
Matthew 18:15-20
