This Week’s Sermon

October 4th 2020

What Gets in the Way II
Matthew 20:1-16 (The Parable of the Workers)

1“For the kingdom of heaven is like a landowner who went out early in the morning to hire workers for his vineyard. He agreed to pay them a denarius[a] for the day and sent them into his vineyard.

“About nine in the morning he went out and saw others standing in the marketplace doing nothing. He told them, ‘You also go and work in my vineyard, and I will pay you whatever is right.’ So they went.

“He went out again about noon and about three in the afternoon and did the same thing. About five in the afternoon he went out and found still others standing around. He asked them, ‘Why have you been standing here all day long doing nothing?’

“‘Because no one has hired us,’ they answered.

“He said to them, ‘You also go and work in my vineyard.’

“When evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the workers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last ones hired and going on to the first.’

“The workers who were hired about five in the afternoon came and each received a denarius. 10 So when those came who were hired first, they expected to receive more. But each one of them also received a denarius.11 When they received it, they began to grumble against the landowner.12 ‘These who were hired last worked only one hour,’ they said, ‘and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the work and the heat of the day.’

13 “But he answered one of them, ‘I am not being unfair to you, friend. Didn’t you agree to work for a denarius? 14 Take your pay and go. I want to give the one who was hired last the same as I gave you. 15 Don’t I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?’

16 “So the last will be first, and the first will be last.”

Ministry of the Month

Pam Barna
The One With The Hair

1.  How has your time in leadership (children, women) affected your faith? 
It has truly stretched me beyond anything I thought I would ever do or be capable of.  God has allowed me to see that if I’m faithful with little, He will provide so much more!

 2. What is your best advice for new believers when it comes to getting involved in ministry and/or groups?  
Take that step of faith and do it, you won’t be disappointed!  Hop into a growth group, meet others, then start expanding on what you enjoy we’ll always find a place for you to serve.

3. During this time that we are in right now, how would you suggest people still be involved? 
There are 3 growth groups happening, be a part of “the body” even if you’re more comfortable on line through zoom.  

4. What is your least favorite ice cream flavor? 
Hmmm, I’m pretty forgiving with ice cream and don’t discriminate except if it has nuts… no thanks.
