Rev. Denise Mbise Opens Season of Creation

September 18, 2015

Denise-profileAtonement-Our Savior’s Lutheran Church pastor Rev. Denise Mbise (right) will be our guest preacher as we begin celebration of the Season of Creation this weekend, September 19 and 20. Pastor Mbise will give a sermon celebrating Earth as a sacred place, a sanctuary filled with God’s presence.

The Season of Creation is a relatively new liturgical season that has been added as an option with the other seasons of the church year. Advent, Epiphany, Lent, and Easter celebrate the life of Jesus; Pentecost celebrates the Christian life in the Spirit. The Season of Creation affords an opportunity also to celebrate God the Creator and to reflect on our human responsibility to serve and protect creation.

The worship themes for the four weeks will include Air, Earth, Humanity, Mountains and Animals, with special scriptures, prayers and hymns for each worship theme. FaithWorks pastors will rotate from one congregation to the next as the weekly preachers.

Emmaus offers English services Saturday at 4:30 p.m. and Sunday at 9:00 a.m. Pastor Jhon Freddy Correa will preach at the Spanish language service at 11:00 a.m. Sunday.
