Online Worship Service
Worship LIVE with Holy Cross Lutheran
What do you hunger for? What does our world hunger for? Have you ever felt that what you and we have to offer the world is meager compared to the need? Join us for worship this Sunday as we explore this and other themes related to God’s extravagant provision for us and for the world, and the way in which God uses what we perceive as meager in our lives to love and bless others. We will read the Bible, sing together, share a children’s time, experience a sermon, confess our shared faith, pray, and celebrate the Lord’s Supper. After worship we will share in a digital coffee and check-in time. Hope to see you then!
Theme for Worship
In today’s first reading God invites all who are hungry or thirsty to receive food and drink without cost. Jesus feeds the hungry multitude and reveals the abundance of God. At the eucharistic table we remember all who are hungry or poor in our world today. As we share the bread of life, we are sent forth to give ourselves away as bread for the hungry.
First Reading: Isaiah 55:1-5
God invites Israel to a great feast at which both food and drink are free. God also promises to make an everlasting covenant with all peoples, with promises that previously had been limited to Israel. As David was a witness to the nations, these nations shall now acknowledge the ways in which God has glorified Israel.
Gospel: Matthew 14:13-21
After John the Baptist is murdered, Jesus desires a time of solitude. Still, his compassion for others will not allow him to dismiss those who need him, and he is moved to perform one of his greatest miracles.
