Church Service on Sunday, March 8, 2020

Welcome to the website of the Church of the Holy Spirit, an international group of believers and seekers from many different backgrounds, sharing together the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday.  Please go to our Visitor's Information page for service details including information about our Sunday School program and Child Protection Policy.

What then shall we say that Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh, discovered in this matter? If, in fact, Abraham was justified by works, he had something to boast about—but not before God. What does Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”

Now to the one who works, wages are not credited as a gift but as an obligation. However, to the one who does not work but trusts God who justifies the ungodly, their faith is credited as righteousness.

Romans 4:1-5

The lectionary readings for this second Sunday in Lent are:

Psalm: Psalm 121
First reading:  Genesis 12:1-4a
Second reading:  Romans 4:1-5, 13-17
Gospel:  John 3:1-17

The collect:

Almighty God,  
whose most dear Son went not up to joy 
 but first he suffered pain,  
and entered not into glory  
before he was crucified:  
mercifully grant that we,  
walking in the way of the cross,  
may find it none other  
than the way of life and peace;  
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
