The Office of the Bishop has invited Rostered Ministers of the Virginia Synod to prepare sermons for the Sundays between September 30th, 2018 and Pentecost Sunday, June 9, 2019. These sermons will follow the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL) texts and will be suitable to be read by a lay person in any congregation in the Virginia Synod.
The sermons provided below are intended for use in congregational settings where all other options for pastoral leadership have been exhausted; they are not intended to replace personal, pastoral leadership. We know that congregations may at times struggle to find someone to preach on Sunday morning and as a result find their congregation in need of appropriate resources to provide Sunday sermons. These sermons will help provide biblically, theologically, and Confessionally sound proclamation in Virginia Synod congregations.
If you have a question about the sermon resources, please contact Assistant to the Bishop, Pastor Kelly Bayer Derrick at firstname.lastname@example.org
