Sixth Sunday after Pentecost

Published by:

Follow Jesus

Sixth Sunday after Pentecost – June 26, 2016
Freedom in Christ is a paradox. On one hand, Jesus’ grace and mercy frees us from the law that kills; on the other hand, obedience to God’s call is the way of the cross. How are disciples of Christ meant to balance these seemingly contradictory ways of being? Paul reminded the Galatians that following Christ meant walking in the Spirit and turning away from the flesh. Jesus proclaimed a singular focus in life.
Readings this week: 1 Kings 19:9b-21; Psalm 16:1-9; Galatians 5:1, 13-25; Luke 9:51-62

Fifth Sunday after Pentecost

You are His

Fifth Sunday after Pentecost – June 19, 2016
There is a profound movement in the Scriptures for today: Israel is judged “rebellious,” and the door for the Gentiles to receive God’s grace begins to open. Salvation is a gift from God to repentant sinners, who by faith are no longer captive to the law but are freed to live joyfully, trusting they are saved by grace. The result of that freedom is the declaration to all who will listen of what Christ has done for us.
Readings this week: Isaiah 65:1-9; Psalm 3; Galatians 3:23 – 4:7; Luke 8:26-39

Fourth Sunday after Pentecost – June 12, 2016

The greatest gift that Christ has given us is the forgiveness of our sin. This forgiveness not only grants us life eternal, but it frees us to live fully and joyfully in the here and now. We are all prone to sin — it is our inheritance from our first parents. But through Christ, we receive the good news of a new and right relationship with God through Jesus’ loving-kindness and mercy. Blessed are those who are forgiven!
Readings this week: 2 Samuel 11:26 – 12:10, 13-14; Psalm 32:1-7; Galatians 2:15-21, 3:10-14; Luke 7:36 – 8:1-3

Reformation Lutheran Church Slated To Move This Fall, Star Exponent Article

Published by:


When Reformation Lutheran Church relocates into the former Rappahannock Electric Cooperative building at 601 Madison Road, it’ll have plenty of room for its growing congregation.

Pastor Brad Hales said when he came aboard in May 2005; the church had about 30 parishioners. Today, that number has swelled to about 215, according to Hales.

“We are very excited to be able to share the gospel of Jesus Christ in the new building,” Hales said Wednesday. “We will be able to share the word with more people there and touch more lives. We are very grateful for this opportunity.”
