Fourth Sunday after Pentecost

June 28, 2020


(La Bienvenida e Introducción)

(La Oración de Invocación)

Song of Praise: Aleluya

1)  Cantemos al Señor un himno de alegría,

     Un cantico de amor al nacer el nuevo día.

     El hizo el cielo, el mar, el sol, y las estrellas.

     Y vio en ellos bondad, pues sus obras eran bellas.

Coro:  ¡Aleluya!...¡Aleluya!

             Cantemos al Señor.  ¡Aleluya!

2) Cantemos al Señor un himno de alabanza

    Que exprese nuestro amor, nuestro fe y nuestra esperanza

    En toda la creación pregona su grandeza,

    Así nuestro cantar va anunciando su belleza.

Coro:  (dos veces)


The Scripture Readings (Las Lecturas)

      (After each reading:)

Reader: This is the Word of the Lord. (La palabra del Señor.)

People: Thanks be to God.          (¡Gracias a Dios!)

First Reading: Jeremiah (Jeremías) 28:5-9

5 Then in the presence of the priests and of all the people who were standing in the Temple, I said to Hananiah: 6“Wonderful! I hope the Lord will do this! I certainly hope he will make your prophecy come true and will bring back from Babylonia all the temple treasures and all the people who were taken away as prisoners. 7But listen to what I say to you and to the people. 8The prophets who spoke long ago, before my time and yours, predicted that war, starvation, and disease would come to many nations and powerful kingdoms. 9But a prophet who predicts peace can only be recognized as a prophet whom the Lord has truly sent when that prophet’s predictions come true.”


Second Reading: Romans (Romanos) 7:1-13

1 Certainly you will understand what I am about to say, my brothers and sisters, because all of you know about law. The law rules over people only as long as they live. 2A married woman, for example, is bound by the law to her husband as long as he lives; but if he dies, then she is free from the law that bound her to him. 3So then, if she lives with another man while her husband is alive, she will be called an adulteress; but if her husband dies, she is legally a free woman and does not commit adultery if she marries another man. 4That is how it is with you, my sisters and brothers. As far as the Law is concerned, you also have died because you are part of the body of Christ; and now you belong to him who was raised from death in order that we might be useful in the service of God. 5For when we lived according to our human nature, the sinful desires stirred up by the Law were at work in our bodies, and all we did ended in death. 6Now, however, we are free from the Law, because we died to that which once held us prisoners. No longer do we serve in the old way of a written law, but in the new way of the Spirit. 7 Shall we say, then, that the Law itself is sinful? Of course not! But it was the Law that made me know what sin is. If the Law had not said, “Do not desire what belongs to someone else,” I would not have known such a desire. 8But by means of that commandment sin found its chance to stir up all kinds of selfish desires in me. Apart from law, sin is a dead thing. 9I myself was once alive apart from law; but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life, 10and I died. And the commandment which was meant to bring life, in my case brought death. Sin found its chance, and by means of the commandment it deceived me and killed me. 12 So then, the Law itself is holy, and the commandment is holy, right, and good. 13But does this mean that what is good caused my death? By no means! It was sin that did it; by using what is good, sin brought death to me, in order that its true nature as sin might be revealed. And so, by means of the commandment sin is shown to be even more terribly sinful.


Third Reading: Matthew (San Mateo) 10:34-42    

34 “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the world. No, I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. I came to set sons against their fathers, daughters against their mothers, daughters-in-law against their mothers-in-law; your worst enemies will be the members of your own family. 37 Those who love their father or mother more than me are not fit to be my disciples; those who love their son or daughter more than me are not fit to be my disciples. Those who do not take up their cross and follow in my steps are not fit to be my disciples. Those who try to gain their own life will lose it; but those who lose their life for my sake will gain it. 40 Whoever welcomes you welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. 41Whoever welcomes God’s messenger because he is God’s messenger, will share in his reward. And whoever welcomes a good man because he is good, will share in his reward. 42You can be sure that whoever gives even a drink of cold water to one of these little ones because he is my

follower, will certainly receive a reward.” 

34 “No crean que yo he venido a traer paz al mundo; no he venido a traer paz, sino guerra. 35 He venido a poner al hombre contra su padre, a la hija contra su madre y a la nuera contra su suegra; 36 de modo que los enemigos de cada cual serán sus propios parientes. 37 “El que quiere a su padre o a su madre más que a mí, no merece ser mío; el que quiere a su hijo o a su hija más que a mí, no merece ser mío; 38y el que no toma su cruz y me sigue, no merece ser mío. 39El que trate de salvar su vida, la perderá, pero el que pierda su vida por causa mía, la salvará. 40 “El que los recibe a ustedes, me recibe a mí; y el que me recibe a mí, recibe al que me envió. 41 El que recibe a un profeta por ser profeta, recibirá igual premio que el profeta; y el que recibe a un justo por ser justo, recibirá el mismo premio que el justo. 42 Y cualquiera que le da siquiera un vaso de agua fresca a uno de estos pequeños por ser seguidor mío, les aseguro que tendrá su premio.”







The Apostle’s Creed

    I believe in God, the Father Almighty maker of heaven and earth.

    And in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell.  The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence he will come to judge the living and the dead.

    I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of  the body, and the life everlasting.  Amen.


The Message   (El Mensaje)

The Prayers   (Las Oraciones)

Hymn:   En Jesucristo Se Halla la Paz

En Jesucristo se halla la paz;

En horas negras de tempestad

Hallan las almas dulce solaz, Grato consuelo, felicidad.

    [EL CORO:] 

    Gloria cantemos al Redentor que por nosotros quiso morir

    Y que la gracia del Salvador siempre dirija nuestro vivir.

En nuestras luchas, en el dolor en tristes horas de tentación,

Calma la infunde, santo fervor, nuevos alientos al corazón. (coro)

Cuando en la lucha falta la fe y el alma vese desfallacer,

Cristo nos dice: "Siempre os daré gracia divina, santo poder.



The Preparation for Holy Communion     

Pastor:       We come also now in the presence of our Lord who came among us as Savior and who reigns as our eternal Lord.

People:     We come before you, Lord, as we truly are.  We come with our confusion and our doubts, with our needs and our fears, with our self-centeredness and our lack of faith and love.  But we also come before you, Lord, with the hope you have given us. Set us free by your forgiveness and love.
