Worship Focus for Sunday, February 282021

 

Greetings.


I hope and pray that this season of Lent is providing you the opportunity to intentionally and prayerfully reflect on your faith. These several weeks of preparation leading up to Easter are a gift that the church has given us as we spend time opening ourselves to the transformative love that God has for us in Jesus. Our series (Irresistible) is one that invites us to reflect more deeply on the love God has for us in Jesus and how we can recapture the faith that the early church found so compelling & so…irresistible.

My hope and prayer is that in and through the ministry of our church you are being led as you are being fed in your relationship with God and your awareness of Jesus’ love in your life. Our Lenten Life Groups are providing opportunities for deeper conversation and deeper connections – it’s not too late to be a part of one! You can learn more about when they are and sign up for one by clicking here

I will look forward to worshiping with you online this Sunday.

Grace & Peace, 

steve

This week's worship information:

Sermon Series: Irresistible: Reclaiming the NEW that Jesus Unleashed for the World
Sunday's Message: The Bible According to Jesus

Scripture:
Matthew 22:34-40
Matthew 5:17-20

Matthew 22:34-40
When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, and one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. ‘Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?’ He said to him, ‘ “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.’

Matthew 5:17-20
‘Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfil. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one letter, not one stroke of a letter, will pass from the law until all is accomplished. Therefore, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

PRELUDE  Lord, Enthroned in Heavenly Splendor - arr. Larry Shackley
Ascap

WELCOME

HYMN OF CELEBRATION: #379 My Hope is Built on Nothing Less (vss. 1, 2 & 4)


Vs. 1. My Hope is built on nothing less than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame, But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
Refrain: On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand, All other ground is sinking sand.
Vs. 2 When darkness veils His lovely face, I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale, My anchor holds within the veil.
Refrain
Vs. 4 When He shall come with trumpet sound, O may I then in Him be found,
Dressed in His righteousness alone, Faultless to stand before the throne.

NEWS OF THE COMMUNITY

OFFERTORY Perfect Peace – Laura Story; Joy Fischer, Solo


Stay close by My side. Keep your eyes on Me.
Though this life is hard, I will give you perfect peace.
In this time of trial, pain that no one sees,
Trust Me when I say- that I will give you perfect peace.

And you’ll never walk alone and you’ll never be in need.
Though I may not calm the storms around you,
You can hide in Me.

Burdens that you bear offer no relief.
Let me bear your load, ‘cause I will give you perfect peace.
Stay close by My side, and you’ll never walk alone.
Keep your eyes on Me and you’ll never be in need.
Though this life is hard, know that I will always give you perfect peace.
I will give you perfect peace.

PASTORAL PRAYER & LORD’S PRAYER

HYMN OF DEDICATION: #667 (GH) God Has Spoken by the Prophets (Vss. 1-3)


Vs. 1 God has spoken by the prophets, spoken the unchanging Word,
Each from age to age proclaiming God, the one, the righteous Lord!
‘Mid the world’s despair and turmoil one firm anchor holding fast;
God eternal reigns forever, God the first and God the last.

Vs. 2 God has spoken by Christ Jesus, Christ, the everlasting Son,
Brightness of the Father’s glory, with the Father ever one;
Spoken by the Word incarnate, God of God, ere time was born;
Light of light, to earth descending, Christ, as God in human form.

Vs. 3 God is speaking by the Spirit, speaking to our hearts again;
In the agelong Word declaring God’s own message, now as then.
Through the rise and fall of nations one sure faith yet standing fast;
God abides, the Word unchanging, God the first and God the last.
