Biblical Women

Community Mennonite Church 

A Summer Worship Series  2015

We launch this summer worship series with one of the call stories from our Bible School curriculum:  Message Received.  To join Mary, called to bear Jesus the Messiah into the world, we’ve chosen four other Biblical women:  Tamar, daughter of King David; Mary, leader of a Jerusalem house church; Rhoda, a servant in Mary’s home; and an unnamed woman who met Jesus.  The stories of these women range from horrifying to inspiring.  Some stories are familiar, while others may be surprisingingly new.  We expect that each one will  take on some fresh resonance as we engage them from our current vantage point as a congregation in local mission in Harrisonburg and sending women and men into many other places around the world.  As our worship is shaped by these contributions to our Biblical inheritance, let’s take seriously the stories of our lives, seeking the traces of God’s work within us and through us as we bear Christ in our world today.
