Sermon Text: Mark 8:27-38
Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi, and on the way, he asked his disciples, ‘Who do people say that I am?’ And they answered him, ‘John the Baptist; and others, Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets.’ So he asked them, ‘But who do you say that I am?’ Peter answered him, ‘You are the Messiah.’ And he sternly ordered them not to tell anyone about him.
Then he began to teach them that the Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again. He said all this quite openly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. But turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, ‘Get behind me, Satan! For you are setting your mind not on divine things but human things.’
He called the crowd with his disciples and said, ‘If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and the sake of the Gospel, will save it. For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life? Indeed, what can they give in return for their life? Those who are ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of them the Son of Man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.’
Epworth’s Annual Work Day Offering, Sunday, September 12, 2021
Epworth Children’s Home Annual Offering provides resources for guiding children to become adults. Your gift to Epworth helps each child, in every single program, develop the skills, self-confidence, and self-worth that they need to succeed. 100% of the offering provides comprehensive care for children at Epworth. Epworth is not an apportioned item in the Annual Conference. Work Day is a vital means of supporting Epworth’s ministry to children and families who are in need.

September Stewardship activities
The 2021 Stewardship Campaign is underway. Most of you should have received a kick-off letter from the committee a few weeks ago.
The next 3 Sundays, one of three Stewardship videos will run each Sunday at the beginning of the Services. These videos will also be available on YouTube, Facebook and the website plus running on the monitor in the learning center hallway.
You should receive a second letter by next week that will include a 2021 pledge card and e-giving instructions. Pledge cards will also be available from the Stewardship webpage, in the office and in the services for 9/19 & 9/26.
