LITURGICAL COLOR: GREEN
The paraments – the cloths on the cross and pulpit – are now green signifying we are in a period of “ordinary time” in the church year. The Ordinary Time that follows Pentecost is known as Kingdomtide. This period will continue until the Season of Advent begins.
During Ordinary Time we study Scripture texts that encourage us to mature in our daily expressions of faith so that we become more holy and whole persons.
SSUMC CELEBRATES ‘NINTH SUNDAY’
AUGUST 28 @ 9AM
Join us for our first ever Ninth Sunday Worship Service on August 28. We will worship at the 9 o’clock hour, worship through musical offerings from our Sanctuary Choir, Shore Youth Band, and Shore Song Modern Band, celebrate what fruits have been borne through God’s Spirit in the present quarter, commit to what fruits we will bear for God in the coming quarter, and share in Holy Communion. A time of food and fellowship will follow.
JOIN ‘CAFÉ FAITH’ THIS WEDNESDAY via ZOOM
Café Faith is a Wednesday lunchtime study and fellowship opportunity. Join us as we enjoy our meal, enjoy our fellowship, and enjoy time spent in the Word with God. Please read The Temple and Origin Stories in Rachel Held Evans’ Inspired in preparation for our gathering.
