Are we allowed to not have a worship service on Sunday and instead worship by serving the community?

As you may have already heard, we are taking the month of September to prepare ourselves spiritually for The Church Has Left The Building on October 7th.  So we’re pausing our Minor Prophets sermon series, and we’re learning from some events in the life of Jesus, primarily in the Gospel of Luke.

First and foremost we need to answer: are we even allowed to do this?  What about Sabbath?  And in particular, what about not working on the Sabbath?  These are important questions.  What is so interesting is that the Pharisees asked the same questions of Jesus.  Jesus response is very surprising and informative.

I would love for us to discuss it further, if any of you would like to.
