The text this week is Ephesians 2:11-22, which describes how Christ has broken down the walls that divide us and made us into one body, one building, his church. The worship theme is ‘The Church’s One Foundation,” and the visual theme is (of course) churches.

Come People of the Risen King
Matthew 8:11 I tell you, many will come from east and west and recline at table with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven,
Matthew 28:19-20 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Ephesians 2:13-16, 19-22 (DSV) But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near through the blood of Christ. 14For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, 15by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, thus making peace, 16and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility.
19So then, you are no longer foreigners and aliens, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of God’s household, 20built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone. 21In him the whole structure, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord. 22And in him you too are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.
