Jesus “works” on a Sabbath
"Jesus’ friend Luke describes the works of divine healing that Jesus performed on a sabbath day, to show from the outset that the new creation began where the old creation ceased. Luke shows us that the Son of God is not under the law but above the law, and that the law will not be destroyed but fulfilled (Matthew 5:17). For the world was not made through the law but by Jesus the Christ, the Living Word, a full partner in the Holy Trinity and co-creator. As we read: 'By the Word of the Lord were the heavens established' (Psalm 33:6). Through Jesus the law is not destroyed but fulfilled, so that the renewal of humankind, already in error, may occur. The Apostle Paul says, 'Stripping yourselves of the old person, put on the new, who was created according to Christ' (Colossians 3:9-10, Ephesians 4:22,24). Jesus fittingly began his miracles of healing on the sabbath, that he may show himself as Creator. He completed the work that he had already begun by weaving together works with works.”
~ Ambrose of Milan, 339-397 A.D.

The Church is not Closed.
Only the building is closed except for pastoral, program, 
music, and office staff members who try not to be in at the same time and a light cleaning crew 
that comes in once a week instead of twice a week.
 
We are the church outside the building
loving and serving God by loving and serving others.
