Sunday 2nd July
Trinity 4 – Welcome
Who do we welcome and how?
A Service of the Word led by Rochelle.
First Reading: Psalm 13
How long will you forget me, O Lord; for ever?
How long will you hide your face from me?
How long shall I have anguish in my soul
and grief in my heart, day after day?
How long shall my enemy triumph over me?
Look upon me and answer, O Lord my God;
lighten my eyes, lest I sleep in death;
Lest my enemy say, ‘I have prevailed against him,’
and my foes rejoice that I have fallen.
But I put my trust in your steadfast love;
my heart will rejoice in your salvation.
I will sing to the Lord,
for he has dealt so bountifully with me.
Gospel Reading: Matthew 10.40–42
‘Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward; and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous; and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple — truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward.’
Welcomer – Andrea Peets

Bible Reading: Matthew 10: 40-42
Read by Bill Zuill
The Bible reading is from the International Children’s Bible, Matthew Chapter 10, Verses 40 to 42
Whoever accepts you also accepts me.
And whoever accepts me
also accepts the One who sent me.
Whoever meets a prophet and accepts him
will receive the reward of a prophet.
And whoever accepts a good man
because that man is good
will receive the reward of a good man.
Whoever helps one of these little ones
because they are my followers will truly get his reward.
He will get his reward even if he only
gave my follower a cup of cold water.
This is the word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God
