Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost



9:00am Sunday School for all ages / Coffee served

10:00am Worship with Holy Communion





In today's second reading Paul questions why we judge one another, since we all stand before the judgment of God. Yet we do sin against one another, and Jesus' challenge that we forgive seventy-seven times reveals God's boundless mercy. When we hear the words of forgiveness in worship and sign ourselves with the cross, we are renewed in baptism to be signs of reconciliation in the world.




Genesis 50:15–21

Psalm 103:[1–7] 8–13 LORD, you are full of compassion and mercy. (Ps. 103:8)

Romans 14:1–12

Matthew 18:21–35



Prayer of the Day

O Lord God, merciful judge,

you are the inexhaustible fountain of forgiveness.

Replace our hearts of stone with hearts that love and adore you,

that we may delight in doing your will,

through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.

Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost



9:00am Sunday School for all ages / Coffee served

10:00am Worship with Holy Communion





Matthew narrates one of Jesus' controversial parables, in which Jesus says the reign of God is like workers who get paid the same no matter when they start. When God changes his mind about punishing Nineveh for their evil ways, Jonah is angry. Yet God is gracious and merciful, abounding in steadfast love. In baptism we receive the grace of God that is freely given to all. As Luther wrote, in the presence of God's mercy we are all beggars.





Jonah 3:10—4:11

Psalm 145:1–8: The LORD is slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. (Ps. 145:8)

Philippians 1:21–30

Matthew 20:1–16



Prayer of the Day


Almighty and eternal God,

you show perpetual lovingkindness to us your servants.

Because we cannot rely on our own abilities,

grant us your merciful judgment,

and train us to embody the generosity of your Son,

Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
