Worship Services

September 16, 2020

Dear Reformation family, 

The Elders and church leadership met again to discuss plans for worship and Bible Study in the upcoming months.  As a leadership body, we decided the following: 

  • Effective Sunday, September 20 at 9:30AM, Pastor Stone’s adult Bible Class on “Church – Mission – Ministry” will be held socially-distant in-person in the sanctuary, with Zoom connection available for those who don’t feel comfortable meeting in person. To join Zoom Meeting:

  • Saturday evening service will continue at 6PM outdoors for the remainder of September. Sunday morning service will continue at 8AM outdoors for September. 
  • Effective Saturday, October 3, we will be moving the Saturday evening service indoors at 6:30PM for the month of October.  These services will be livestreamed on Saturday evenings and later made available on the Reformation YouTube channel for those who don’t feel comfortable attending in person. You can access the livestream and videos here: Reformation San Diego YouTube channel. 
  • We will continue the Sunday morning 8AM service outdoors in October.  The fallback option in case of rain would be indoors in the sanctuary. 

We felt that the weather would be comfortable enough in October to continue to offer at least one outdoor worship option, which will also be a safer environment for those concerned about COVID-related complications.  As before, thank you for your continued patience during these times.  Things can change quickly.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out to one of the Elders or other church leaders if you have any questions or concerns. 

In Christ,

Reformation Board of Elders

 

1 God is our refuge and strength,

     an ever-present help in trouble.

2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way

     and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,

3 though its waters roar and foam

     and the mountains quake with their surging. 

11 The Lord Almighty is with us;

     the God of Jacob is our fortress. 

Psalm 46:1-3, 11

LOVE IN ACTION: ON HOW CHRIST’S LOVE MAKES US LOVE

This fall at Reformation, we are going to take a seven-week look at love in action, specifically how Christ’s love makes us love. This series for the Sundays after Pentecost focuses on the life of love Christ motivated his disciples to live, from a life of carrying crosses to a life of generously pouring out forgiveness, patience and love for everyone. All of this is modeled by Christ, who carried his cross for us, and pours out onto us unimaginable forgiveness, patience, and love for the lost. We will see that Christians don’t seek to be loving to earn God’s love, but rather we respond in Holy Spirit-inspired love when we see what Christ has done for us. Join us each week as we grow in Christ-like love:

  • Love Carries a Cross (September 12-13)
  • Love Holds Accountable (September 19-20)
  • Love Forgives (September 26-27)
  • Love Isn’t Fair (October 3-4)
  • Love Listens (October 10-11)
  • Love Is Patient (October 17-18)
  • Love Invites Everyone (October 24-25)
