This week we continued our Bearing Witness series, looking to John 5 to examine what it means for God to always be at work. In service this week, we were led in Scripture and Prayer by Kris Wales, communion by Marion Greaser, and in singing by Lauren Tomlinson, Ann Sippy, Sandy Polcyn, and Kathi Seman. Additionally, we got to hear from Tom Sippy as he reflected on God’s faithfulness in his career.
This week we begin a sermon series looking to the future, talking about the language that we use and what our focus as a church will be. Lauren Tomlinson will lead us on Piano in worship for the first time!
This week, we finished up our trek through the book of Ephesians by looking at the Armor of God (6:10-20). In this text, Paul calls upon us to stand firm and to “withstand” the onslaught of the enemy. But Paul also reminds us who our enemy is. We were led in Scripture and Prayer by Chardel Johnston, worship by Lauren Tomlinson and Terry Walker, and Terry also led our communion time.
On this, 12th Sunday since Pentecost in Ordinary Time, things were… not so ordinary. Adam and family were away for he and Lauren’s 10th anniversary and Wayne Shockley was scheduled to preach before he and his wife, Clarissa, came down with Covid. Unable to preach, we had an abbreviated service of scripture, prayer, songs, and communion. Unfortunately, though, problems with our technology led to us not recording the service. Nevertheless, we were able to put together the elements from service after the fact for you here. Please be blessed with the service we have below.
On the Tenth Sunday of Ordinary Time we spend the bulk of our time in Ephesians 4:1-16, examining what it means to be an individual, and how God has equipped us with gifts. Nadine Miller shares her witness, and Lauren Tomlinson leads us in worship.
This week, we joined in worship through song, to praise God’s abundant love and provision in our lives. We read from John 6 and Psalm 145. We were challenged to foster an imagination and dream God’s dreams. We enjoyed praying for one another and gathered around the Lord’s Table once again. Terry Walker blessed us with his Witness.
On the 8th Sunday of Ordinary Time we are joined by our worship team leading us in both music and voice. This week, we read from Jeremiah, recite Psalm 23 together, and look at Ephesians 2:11-23, and examine Jesus as the Cornerstone and Keystone of our life. We join together in communion at the Lord’s Table.
