Thank you for visiting! Come join us this Sunday either at our 9:15 AM Community Service or our second service starting at 10:30 AM.
Please read our updated “Worship Policy” if you plan to attend. If you are not feeling well or have been near someone within the last 2 weeks who has not been well, we ask you to please enjoy the current week’s message on this website (Video Messages Tab) or on the Linway Facebook Page.
The online recordings of the Scripture Reading, Morning Prayer, and Sermon will now be posted to the church website and Facebook page No Later than MONDAY EVENINGS. We apologize to those who enjoy watching the recording on Sundays. Unfortunately, there are a limited number of people able to prepare and post the recording. Having an extra day will give them some extra time to get the recording posted. Thank you for your understanding.
Inspiration Passage for Sunday:
October 17, 2021 Service
The Request of James and John
35 Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him. “Teacher,” they said, “we want you to do for us whatever we ask.”
36 “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked.
37 They replied, “Let one of us sit at your right and the other at your left in your glory.”
38 “You don’t know what you are asking,” Jesus said. “Can you drink the cup I drink or be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with?”
39 “We can,” they answered.
Jesus said to them, “You will drink the cup I drink and be baptized with the baptism I am baptized with, 40 but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared.”
41 When the ten heard about this, they became indignant with James and John. 42 Jesus called them together and said, “You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. 43 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. 45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” – Mark 10:35-45
Paranoia is not freedom
Freedom’s not for those who hate
Freedom comes to those who love
With peace and patience wait
You’d think that we’d have learned by now
It’s truth that sets us free
With selfish pride, the truth we hide
The truth, we cannot see
Blindness is not kindness
And right is never wrong
But freedom we can celebrate
And know that we belong
To someone who imparts to us
The truth that makes us free
That someone’s name is Jesus
And He died for you and me!!!
