FEBRUARY SERMON SERIES – Matthew 25: No Easy Answers Here!

In the summer/fall of 2020, Lewinsville’s Session voted to become a Matthew 25 congregation of the Presbyterian Church (USA). The Matthew 25 initiative has three pillars: dismantling structural racism, eradicating systemic poverty, and building congregational vitality. Lewinsville has chosen to focus especially on understanding and addressing the realities of racism – in ourselves, in the church and community, and in the world.

During the month of February, as part of our commemoration of Black History Month, we will be taking a “deep dive” into Matthew 25:31-46, listening for what it has to teach us about our relationships with vulnerable people in our society, with issues of race, and with Jesus. There are no easy answers in Matthew 25! No matter where we fall on any political spectrum, we may expect to be challenged, and we may expect to have our understandings – of Jesus, of race, and of ourselves – turned upside down. Through Matthew 25, Jesus will lead all of us into deeper honesty, deeper repentance, and deeper humility. Honesty, repentance, and humility – what gifts!

Services are held each Sunday at 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. with the exception of the summer months when services are combined into one service at 10:00 a.m. Monthly Contemplative Worship (Taizé worship) is held in the chapel, the first Sunday of the month at 7:00 p.m. READ MORE about Taizé worship.

Our 8:30 a.m. service is designed to be a simple, less liturgical and more intimate service of worship. Communion is served every Sunday at this service. All are welcome at the Lord’s table.

Our 11:00 a.m. service is more traditional, with the sacrament of Holy Communion celebrated on the first Sunday of each month. Holy Communion is also celebrated on special days throughout the year. All Christian believers and their baptized children are welcome at the Lord’s table.

The sacrament of Baptism is administered during morning worship (usually on the third Sunday at the 11:00 a.m. service) by arrangement with the pastors and the Session.

At Lewinsville, we have intentionally scheduled the Church School hour and Worship Services at different times to allow children to participate in and experience worship. READ MORE about Children in Worship. Lewinsville also provides nursery care for infants and small children during the worship service and the Christian Education hour. READ MORE about nursery care.

Special worship services of music are planned during Advent and Lent with added musical instrumentation.

About Taizé Contemplative Worship

taizecandles

Taizé is a place hidden away in the hills of Burgundy, France. It is an ecumenical community of brothers whose worship is at the heart of their life. Worship at the Taizé community happens thrice daily and is called Taizé prayer. Taizé prayer has two essential elements: song and silence.

The Taizé songs are a form of sung prayer. The songs are short chants (usually words from scripture) that are repeated over and over giving them a meditative quality. The silence during Taizé prayer a time of listening, a time to have one’s soul open for God.

We will experience Taizé worship the first Sunday of each month (October through June) at 7:00 p.m. Join us.
