Worship with Holy Cross Lutheran

Join us for live participatory worship via Zoom, including the celebration of Holy Communion, this Sunday, May 9th at 9:30 am Mountain Time.

This Sunday we will encounter the followers of Jesus in Acts 10 who are surprised by the movement of the Holy Spirit to bring those who are different from themselves into community with the risen Jesus alongside them . . . what surprises await our lives of faith this week?

We will sing together, pray with one another, have children's time, read from the Bible, hear good news proclaimed as the sermon, confess our faith, share the Lord's Supper, bless one another, and send each other, refreshed by God's presence, to live God's mission in our world.

Following worship we will have digital coffee and check-in time. I hope to see you there!

Readings for Sunday Worship

Acts 10:44-48

While Peter shares the good news of Jesus with a Gentile soldier and his family, the Holy Spirit comes upon them. Recognizing that the Spirit works inclusively in the lives of both Jews and Gentiles, Peter commands that these Gentiles also be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.

While Peter was still speaking, the Holy Spirit fell upon all who heard the word. The circumcised believers who had come with Peter were astounded that the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out even on the Gentiles, for they heard them speaking in tongues and extolling God. Then Peter said, “Can anyone withhold the water for baptizing these people who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?” So he ordered them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they invited him to stay for several days.

John 15:9-17

On the night of his arrest, Jesus delivers a final testimony to his disciples to help them in the days ahead. Here, he repeats the most important of all his commands, that they love one another.

[Jesus said:] “As the Father has loved me, so I have loved you; abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. I have said these things to you so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete.
  “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. I do not call you servants any longer, because the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father. You did not choose me but I chose you. And I appointed you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask him in my name. I am giving you these commands so that you may love one another.”
