Eighth Sunday after Pentecost


Join us in Worship: July 15, 2018

Sunday School: 9:15 am

Service: 10:30 am


When Amos told what he saw when God held up the plumb line of justice next to Israel—that the poor were being trampled—he was a threat to the power of priests and king. John the Baptist also spoke truth to power, and Herod had him beheaded. In Herod’s fear that Jesus is John returned from the dead, we may hear hope for the oppressed: that all the prophets killed through the ages are alive in Jesus. We are called to witness to justice in company with them.

Amos 7:7-15

Psalm 85:8-13
