Living Grace Sunday Services
re-opening for in-person worship

Sunday, 5 July, at 9:30 a.m.


The Fifth Sunday after Pentecost

5 July 2020

The mystery of God’s ways is sometimes hidden from the wise and intelligent.  Jesus associates with those often excluded from the religious community.  Like Paul, we struggle with our own selfish desires and seek God’s mercy and forgiveness.  We gather to be refreshed by Christ’s invitation:  “Come to me, all you that are weary.”  Gathered around word, water, and meal, we find rest for our souls.

First Reading: Zechariah 9:9-12

The coming messianic king will inaugurate an era of disarmament and prosperity.  Because of God’s covenant with Israel, the people are designated as “prisoners of hope.”

Psalm: Psalm 145:8-14

The Lord is gracious and full of compassion. (Ps. 145:8)

Second Reading: Romans 7:15-25a

Life captive to sin is a catch-22 existence in which we know good but do not do it and do things we know to be wrong.  Through Jesus Christ, God has set us free from such a futile existence.

Gospel: Matthew 11:16-19, 25-30

Jesus chides people who find fault with both his ministry and that of John the Baptist.  He thanks God that wisdom and intelligence are not needed to receive what God has to offer.

(from Sundays and Seasons, 2020)


Re-opening of In-person Worship


Living Grace Lutheran Church


It is with great joy that we extend this invitation to the Living Grace Congregation welcoming you back to in-person worship beginning Sunday, July 5th, with ONE SERVICE AT 9:30 AM.

The facility has been cleaned and sanitized and we have set guidelines for you to worship in safety.  We will be following the safety protocols as recommended by the Living Grace COVID Task Force.  Masks will be required along with physical distancing.  We have a supply of masks and gloves available should you need/desire either one.  There is also an ample supply of hand sanitizer available and placed conveniently around the church.

Even though we have re-opened for in-person worship, we know some of you will feel it to be too soon.  We both appreciate and respect that concern and honor your decision to shelter longer.  To that end, we will continue to provide, via our website, the worship experience we have been doing.  The service will become available each Sunday afternoon since it will be a production of that morning’s live service.

We would really appreciate your letting us know if you will be worshiping in person 5 July so we can be prepared.  Just send back an email with yes or no and the number to the following:


Also, for your information, we have made a small video of what to expect when you come to church for worship.  It has been uploaded to our website.  Go into the Worship Page and click on

            In-person Worship Welcome

We hope this will help you with the expectations of the worship during this time.


Yours in Christ,

The Rev. David E. Hardy, D.D.
