Lesson: Matthew 10: 40-42.
Message: Our lectionary reading from the Gospel of Matthew. Chapter 10 is a commissioning speech that Jesus is making to his disciples. He has finished a long series of teachings about what it means to be a follower of his and now he is sending them out to do the work themselves. These three verses of are the last words they hear before he sends them out.
In essence, Jesus sends this rag tag group out to spread the good news. None of them were famous, or particularly inspiring but Jesus saw something special in each of them and because of this, they had confidence to move forward. This begs the question, have there been people in our lives that have believed in us when we most needed us..people who mirrored Jesus to us. What things can we do to make others feel special and unique, especially these days when there is so much happening in the world that is frightening and overwhelming?

Online Worship Tech Issues
We will start our live streams about 10 minutes prior to the worship start time. During this moment you will hear silence, but see rotating pictures of art that our children and youth have made to share with us. Facebook is clearly having some issues keeping up with the demands of every congregation moving to worship online. Thanks for being patient during this time of sudden transition! Here are some tips if you’re having trouble:
First, try reducing the quality level in Facebook – On the video window highlight over the “resolution” along the bottom right corner of the video player to select a different bandwidth option. This may take a moment to update within your browser.
Next, you can also try using your phone instead. Some people have had more luck using the app than connecting on their computers.
If that doesn’t work, here are some other options:
1. Try a different internet browser (i.e. Chrome, Firefox, etc.) and also close unnecessary tabs on your browser.
2. Try updating your internet browser
3. Try restarting your computer
4. Try restarting your modem or router
5. Try updating your flash player
