WORSHIP WAYS

A MOMENT TO LET GO

OPENING PRAYER

CALL TO WORSHIP
We gather today to worship the One who created us,
The One who calls us,
The One who equips us,
The One who comforts us,
The One who challenges us.
The One who loves us without end.
With joyful hearts,
Let us worship God, together.

⇑ HYMN C#566–”Be Still My Soul”

SHARING TIME
Open our eyes, Lord, we want to see Jesus,
To reach out and touch Him and say that we love Him.
Open our ears, Lord, and help us to listen.
Open our eyes, Lord, we want to see Jesus.

STORYTIME: Don’t be Afraid Little Pip  By Karma Wilson

SCRIPTURE LESSON: Mark 4:35-41 (Oldtown Bible: NT 47)

SERMON–”Remember Who and Whose You Are”

PREPARING FOR PRAYER
In moments like these, I sing out a song,
I sing out a love song to Jesus.
In moments like these, I lift up my hands,
I lift up my hands to the lord.

Singing, “I love you, Lord.” Singing, “I love you, Lord.”
Singing, “I love you, Lord, I love you.”

PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE and THE LORD’S PRAYER
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

STEWARDSHIP CORNER

Weekly Giving

  • Last week, we welcomed 57 people in worship, and our total giving to the church for the week was $989.43, which is $395.19 less than expected.
  • So far, this year’s congregational giving has been $2,100 more than expected. Keep up the great work!!

Jesus doesn’t promise we won’t experience any trouble in our lives if we’re “good enough” or “believe hard enough.” In fact, He tells us, “In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” The promise Jesus makes us is to give us strength and to be with us through the troubles we will experience.

“Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God; I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.”
   ~ Isaiah 41:10 (NRSVUE)
