Worship Focus for Sunday, January 24, 2021

 

Greetings –


We come to the end of a week that has once again seen our country go through a peaceful transition of power. I know many are filled with hopes that our political and cultural discourse can change as we strive to be less divisive and less divided. It will come as no surprise that it is my strong conviction that aligning our hearts with God’s heart & our minds with the mind of Jesus is necessary in order for that to happen. This Sunday we will explore precisely that…what it means to have the mind of Christ.

REMINDER: we will be having our Annual Meeting next Sunday, January 31st after the 10:00am service. The business items on our agenda for Sunday are: 

  • Receiving the final financial report for 2020
  • Presentation of the 2021 operating budget that Session will approve later this month
  • Election of Officers to serve in specific roles within our church ministry {Don Frey – Elder, Alan Throop – Deacon, Janet Dimits – Funds Committee]
  • Approval of Pastoral Terms of Call for Pastor Steve Wilde

The meeting will be taking place on Zoom – and we will be sending out the link for that meeting next week

We are in an important and exciting time in the life of our church! I love our church and am eager to see all that God will accomplish as we head into a new year & season of ministry.

Grace & Peace & privileged to be on this journey with you!

Steve

As is the case each week – you can access our worship services [9:00am Modern Service, 10:00am Traditional Service
]  on this web site.


This week's worship information:

Sermon Series: Piece It Together

Sunday's Message: A Fresh Perspective

Scripture Passages:

Philippians 2:1-5

If then there is any encouragement in Christ, any consolation from love, any sharing in the Spirit, any compassion and sympathy, make my joy complete: be of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves. Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others. Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus,

Psalm 150

Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
   praise him in his mighty firmament! 
Praise him for his mighty deeds;
   praise him according to his surpassing greatness! 
Praise him with trumpet sound;
   praise him with lute and harp! 
Praise him with tambourine and dance;
   praise him with strings and pipe! 
Praise him with clanging cymbals;
   praise him with loud clashing cymbals! 
Let everything that breathes praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!

CCLI/ASCAP

FIRST SCRIPTURE READING: Psalm 150

HYMN OF PREPARATION #358 Help Us Accept Each Other (verses 1-3)

Vs. 1 Help us accept each other as Christ accepted us; Teach us as sister, brother, 

Each person to embrace.

Be present, Lord, among us and bring us to believe 

We are ourselves accepted and meant to love and live.

Vs. 2 Teach us, O Lord, Your lessons, As in our daily life 

We struggle to be human And search for hope and faith.

Teach us to care for people, For all, not just for some, To love them as we find them 

Or as they may become.

Vs. 3 Let Your acceptance change us, So that we may be moved

In living situations To do the truth in love; To practice Your acceptance Until we know by heart

The table of forgiveness And laughter’s healing art.

PASTORAL PRAYER & LORD’S PRAYER

 

HYMN OF DEDICATION: #433 (GH) O Christ the Same (Londonderry Air tune) (Vs. 1 & 3) 

Vs. 1  O Christ the same, through all our story’s pages, 

Our loves and hopes, our failures and our fears;

Eternal Lord, the King of all the ages, The marks of love, in triumph glorified:

O living Word, the source of all creation,

Who spread the skies, and set the stars ablaze, O Christ the same, who wrought our whole salvation,

We bring our thanks for all our yesterdays.

Vs. 3 O Christ the same, secure within whose keeping Our lives and loves, our days and years remain,

Our work and rest, our waking and our sleeping, Our calm and storm, our pleasure and our pain:

O Lord of love, for all our joys and sorrows, For all our hopes, when earth shall fade and flee,

O Christ the same, beyond our brief tomorrows, We bring our thanks for all that is to be.
