Features -15th Sunday After Pentecost Labor Day Weekend; & Holy Communion by Intinction
Scripture - Ruth 1:15-22 & Ruth 4:13-17 & Matthew 1:1-17

Theme -Today, we are in the final part of a six part sermon sermons in the sermon series, matriarchs and patriarchs from the Old Testament. On this Sunday, we focus on the matriarch, Ruth. We often think the matriarchs and patriarchs of our faith were larger than life, and were called by God because they were so special or different than everyone else. Today, we will discover Ruth's fierce loyalty to her mother-in-law, Naomi, and to the God of Israel. We will also discover that God used quite an outsider in the lineage of King David and Jesus of Nazareth.
