SEASONS OF THE CHURCH YEAR

FOURTH SUNDAY after PENTECOST

 

The Church Year is divided into Festivals beginning with Christmas, which includes  4 Sundays in Advent and Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  This is followed by Epiphany Season which begins with the Epiphany of Our Lord and ends 9 Sundays later with the Transfiguration of Our Lord.  The Time of Easter follows beginning with Lent, followed by Holy Week starting with Palm Sunday and concludes with Good Friday.  Easter Season begins with the Resurrection of Our Lord and includes the Ascension of Our Lord  and ends with PENTECOST.  

The first PENTECOST took place on the 50th day after Easter Sunday when the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit, enabling them to testify boldly to spread the Good News of the Gospel. 

This Sunday we mark The Fourth Sunday after Pentecost.

 

Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise,

His greatness no one can fathom.

I will meditate on your wonderful works,

and I will proclaim your great deeds.

FOURTH SUNDAY after PENTECOST

Sermon Theme:

THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN GROWS

i.   It starts growing in insignificance

ii.  It grows to greatness

Sermon Text:

Mark 4:26-34 NIV

26 He also said, “This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. 27 Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. 28 All by itself the soil produces grain—first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head. 29 As soon as the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest has come.”

30 Again he said, “What shall we say the kingdom of God is like, or what parable shall we use to describe it? 31 It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth. 32 Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.”

33 With many similar parables Jesus spoke the word to them, as much as they could understand. 34 He did not say anything to them without using a parable. But when he was alone with his own disciples, he explained everything.

Almighty God, Thy Word is Cast

Author:  John Cawood (1775-1852)

1 Almighty God! thy word is cast
Like seed into the ground;
Now let the dew of heav'n descend,
And righteous fruits abound.

2 Oft as the precious seed is sown,
Thy quick'ning grace bestow;
That all whose souls the truth receive
Its saving pow'r may know.
