We the members of Prince of Peace Evangelical Lutheran Church in Old Tappan, NJ, as people of God declare that we are created, saved, nurtured and guided by God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We respond to God's gifts of grace, love, and forgiveness by:
  • Proclaiming God's Word
  • Administering and participating in the Sacraments
  • Growing in our understanding and love for God's Word through study and fellowship
  • Sharing God's care whenever and wherever needed
  • Reaching out with love and hospitality

THE SEVENTEENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
In the gospel reading, Jesus tells a parable of the vineyard, an image of Israel, the prophets' mission, and Christ's death. For Christians, the vineyard also speaks of God's love poured out in the blood of Christ, given to us for the forgiveness of sin. Grafted onto Christ the vine at baptism, we are nourished with wine and bread, that we may share Christ's sufferings and know the power of his resurrection.

THE EIGHTEENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
In Isaiah we are given a vision of the great feast to come, when God will wipe away death forever. In Jesus' parable about a great banquet, those invited do not come, so the invitation is extended to others. In our liturgy God spreads a table before us. Even amid anxiety and hardship we rejoice in the peace of God that surpasses all understanding. With great joy we feast at the table of the Lord, and we go forth to share the wonderful invitation with others hungering and thirsting for the abundant life of God.

THE NINETEENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
In the first reading God uses the Gentile ruler Cyrus to accomplish divine purposes. When the Pharisees try to trap Jesus, he tells them to give the emperor what belongs to him and to God what belongs to God. To gather for worship reminds us that our ultimate allegiance is to God rather than to any earthly authority. Created in the image of God, we offer our entire selves in the service of God and for the sake of the world.

REFORMATION SUNDAY
On this day we celebrate the heart of our faith: the gospel of Christ—the good news—that makes us free! Though we give thanks for the events of the sixteenthcentury Reformation that brought renewal to the church of that time, we pray that the Holy Spirit would continue to unite the church today in its proclamation and witness to the world. In the waters of baptism we are made one body; we pray for the day that all Christians will also be one at the Lord's table.
