What is the Lectionary?

Have you ever wondered how Pastor Ken chooses the scriptures on which he bases his sermons? It might seem like a random ramble through the Bible, but it is rather a very well planned tour of Christian theology which, in the course of three years, will deliver the complete message of scripture.

The Revised Common Lectionary, as it is called, provides passages from the Old Testament, the Psalms, the Gospels and either the Epistles or the book of Revelation for the pastor to use. There are many passages to choose from each Sunday, but the message contained in them is complementary.

The Lectionary is written in a three-year cycle, Year A, Year B and Year C. Matthew, Mark and Luke Gospels are normally each given one year. The Gospel of John is used more during Lent and Easter and Advent and Christmas. We will begin Year C (featuring Luke) on the first Sunday in Advent, 2021. At the end of Year C it will start again with Year A. You can see all the suggested scriptures at: presbyterianmission.org lectionary.

 

Sunday School Leaders

We are looking for helpers for Sunday School. Sammi will lead the program, so we just need people to cuddle babies, put out snacks, help with the glitter, etc. AND . . . our kids are super cute!

We're hoping to get enough volunteers that you would only be on once a month or once every two months.

Please email Sammi if you are interested.  orangewoodchildrenandyouth@gmail.com .
