January 23rd

Greetings –

This Sunday we will be continuing our sermon series called: Yesterday ~ Today ~ the Future where we are looking back on the ministry of our church with gratitude, celebrating who we are in faithfulness & look forward to our next 150 years filled with hope and confidence! Remember to mark your calendars for our 150th celebration on Sunday, February 6th at 10:00am in worship with a reception to follow on our church campus. We hope you can join us in person or online as we celebrate our church!

An important reminder: Our Annual Meeting will be Sunday, January 30th. Worship will be at 10:00am [in the sanctuary & online] and then we will transition into the business portion of our meeting…likely around 10:45am. We will continue the Livestream so that those online can be present for the meeting as well. The business items on our agenda for Sunday are:

  • Receiving the final financial report for 2021
  • Presentation of the 2022 operating budget that Session approved this past Tuesday
  • Approving changes to the church’s by-laws [allowing for online/virtual meetings]
  • Election of a few officers
  • Presentation of Pastoral Terms of Call for Pastor Steve Wilde

While it seems like a lot, we actually do not expect the meeting to take very long given the positive financial situation our church is in.

See you Sunday!

Grace & Peace,
Steve

Sermon Series: Yesterday ~ Today ~ the Future
Sunday's Message:
The Theology of Magnetic North

Scripture [first text is the focus of the sermon]:
Revelation 2:12-17
Romans 12:1-2

Revelation 2:12-17
‘And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write: These are the words of him who has the sharp two-edged sword:
‘I know where you are living, where Satan’s throne is. Yet you are holding fast to my name, and you did not deny your faith in me even in the days of Antipas my witness, my faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan lives. But I have a few things against you: you have some there who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling-block before the people of Israel, so that they would eat food sacrificed to idols and practice fornication. So you also have some who hold to the teaching of the Nicolaitans. Repent then. If not, I will come to you soon and make war against them with the sword of my mouth. Let anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches. To everyone who conquers I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give a white stone, and on the white stone is written a new name that no one knows except the one who receives it.

Romans 12:1-2
I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.

PASTORAL PRAYER Pastor Denia Segrest


SONG #49 The God of Abraham Praise (vv. 1, 2 & 4) (Public Domain)
Vs. 1 The God of Abraham praise, who reigns enthroned above,
The Ancient of Eternal Days, the God of Love!
The Lord, the great I AM, by earth and heaven confessed,
We bow before your holy name, forever blest.
Vs. 2 Your spirit still flows free, high surging where it will.
In prophet’s word you spoke of old and you speak still.
Established is your law, and changeless it shall stand,
Deep writ upon the human heart by your strong hand.
Vs. 4 You have eternal life implanted in the soul.
Your love shall be our strength and stay, while ages roll.
We praise you, living God! We praise your holy name:
The first, the last, beyond all thought, and still the same.
