Worship Focus for Sunday, May 9th

 

Greetings.

We Gather for worship this Sunday on a day in which our culture celebrates mothers. Like many of you I have come to view mother's day as a day where we celebrate all of the women in our lives who have been an extension of God's grace and strength. For some of us these women are our mother's, while for others they are our friends, grandmothers, aunts and sisters. We thank God for these women and are grateful to be a part of a church that embraces the reality that being a mother is not simply a biological reality, but a relational one as well.

Join us online at 9:00am [Modern] & 10:00am [Traditional] as we continue in our sermon series – “Encore!” and profile different people who played an important (and perhaps lesser known) role in the early church. You can join us and access the service at: https://fpcl.online.church/

We certainly are in a time where many people are in need of hope, encouragement and the assurance of God’s love – so I would encourage you to share our church’s link and invite someone to “join” you online for worship!

Just a reminder that we will be having an in-person worship service in the courtyard of our church THIS Sunday, May 9th at 11:00am. Please RSVP to the church office if you are interested in joining us: office@fpcl.us

During the service children (K-5th) will be invited to the other end of the courtyard for a children’s program on Peter and the Power of Prayer and a special project to celebrate Mother’s Day and the wonderful women in our lives! We hope your family will be able to join this Sunday!

 

Grace & Peace,
Steve

Sermon Series: ENCORE!
Sunday's Message:
Girl Power!

Scripture [first text is the focus of the sermon]:
2 Timothy 1:1-7
Deuteronomy 6:1-8

2 Timothy 1:1-7
Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, for the sake of the promise of life that is in Christ Jesus,

To Timothy, my beloved child: Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord.

I am grateful to God—whom I worship with a clear conscience, as my ancestors did—when I remember you constantly in my prayers night and day. Recalling your tears, I long to see you so that I may be filled with joy. I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that lived first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, lives in you. For this reason I remind you to rekindle the gift of God that is within you through the laying on of my hands; for God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.

Deuteronomy 6:1-8
Now this is the commandment—the statutes and the ordinances—that the Lord your God charged me to teach you to observe in the land that you are about to cross into and occupy, so that you and your children and your children’s children may love the Lord your God all the days of your life, and keep all God’s decrees and commandments that I am commanding you, so that your days may be long. Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe them diligently, so that it may go well with you, and so that you may multiply greatly in a land flowing with milk and honey, as the Lord, the God of your ancestors, has promised you.

Hear, O Israel: The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise.

To her my cares and toils be given till toils and cares shall end.
Vs. 4 Beyond my highest joy I prize her heavenly ways,
Her sweet communion, solemn vows, her hymns of love and praise.
Vs. 5 Sure as your truth shall last, to Zion shall be given
the brightest glories earth can yield, and brighter bliss of heaven.

OFFERTORY Jordan’s Angels-Rollo A. Dilworth

Angels, Angels. Oh---Lookin’ out over Jordan, all I could see:
a band of angels comin’ after me.

Someday my soul shall be free. I shall be free.
All night, and all day, the angels keep awatchin’ over me, my Lord.
All night, and all day, angels keep watchin’ over me and I shall be free.
As I was lookin’ out, over Jordan, all I could see was a band,
a band of angels what were comin’ after me.
Gabriel was playin’ the trumpet and David was playin’ the harp.
Someday my soul shall be free!
Lookin’ out over Jordan, all I could see was a band of angels comin’ for me!
All night, all day, angels keep watchin’ me, my Lord!
Angels, angels. I shall be free!
