Midtown Sacramento 21st & J

Online Worship for September 5, 2021

Join in worship and communion with the church family! Viewers tune in Saturdays or Sundays to hear the pre-recorded service.

This week we focus on… On this Labor Day Sunday our passage comes from James 2:1-14. We’ll consider “A God Who Doesn’t Play Favorites.” In this passage, James excoriates his followers over a class-consciousness in their gatherings. It’s easy to fall, even subconsciously, into seeing one group or connection we have as more “right” or “important” or “visible” than another. Even on Labor Day the diminution of people who are “essential workers” comes to mind. How can we become valuers of all around us and the gifts each one brings?

We are a faith community deeply rooted in the teachings of Jesus by celebrating God, Life and the Arts; calling and action for justice; engaging persons of all sexual and affectional orientations; and welcoming diversity across spiritual, racial, cultural, generational, or cultural lines.
