God is Light

We begin a new ministry year here at the church with the coming of August and the start of a new school year. We'll start out our new ministry year by beginning again our cycle of liturgical themes. The only right way to do that is to start things off with a look at who God is. The first several weeks will then be focused liturgically on different aspects of God. This week...

Feed my sheep

We'll conclude our Summer series entitled "Jesus, What a Friend for Sinners," this week with a look at John 21:15-19. We'll see how Jesus graciously deals with Peter following Peter's denial of him as well as what he charges Peter with. Our songs will set the stage for who Jesus is and what he calls all of us to do. Prelude "We Face a Task Unfinished" This is a missiona...

Doubting Thomas

This week, we'll take a look at Jesus' encounter with Thomas from John 20:24-29. We'll consider issues like doubt and will seek to reorient the focus of our gaze onto Christ. We'll have the opportunity to confess our need and fundamental problem which is our separation from God by sin. We'll also have the opportunity to respond in faith that Christ has come to meet our gre...

The thief

We'll take a look this week at the story of the thief on the cross from Luke 23:32-43. We'll sing about our true condition as sinners, the love of Christ, his absolute ability to forgive sins by his grace, and his willingness to embrace us in kindness just as we saw last week. Prelude "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms" We'll do this instrumentally but our hope is that yo...

Feet Washing

This week we are taking a look at Jesus' encounter with Judas from John 13:1-9. There are four points that the sermon will cover: 1) Jesus humbly served Judas, a sinner, 2) Jesus was kindly discreet to Judas, 3) Jesus consistently feeds sinners, 4) Jesus graciously forgives and loves sinners. It is this last idea of a radical kind of love shown by Jesus to sinners that we'...

Grace

This week, we'll take a look at the doctrine of grace. The teaching of this doctrine is God's response to our most fundamental and critical problem which is our separation from him because of sin. He took the initiative to answer definitely this problem for us in the sending of his Son to die for us. (First promised in Genesis 3:15 and realized in the coming of Christ) Sal...

The church

We'll take a look this week at the doctrine of the church. We'll specifically be singing about how Christ's death and resurrection effectively purchased the church (Acts 20:28), as well as how we are to think of ourselves and live in light of Christ. (Colossians 1:10; Eph. 4:1) Prelude "Come People of the Risen King" This is a great prelude that helps to tune our hearts...

Trinity2

This week we'll celebrate the doctrine of the Trinity. Our songs will focus on how our God, 3-in-1, works together for our salvation. Ephesians 1:3-14 provides our grounding for this truth. Also, I find it really helpful to read precise definitions when it comes to concepts as profound as this one. The Athanasian Creed provides a perfect opportunity for precisely defining ...

Pentecost

We have now concluded Eastertide and will celebrate Pentecost this week. In lieu of the usual Scripture references for each song, take a minute to read of a prophecy about Pentecost from Joel and the actual event in Acts. (Joel 2:28-32; Acts 2) Sandy Willson will be with us again to continue our series, "Jesus! What a Friend for Sinners," this week from the story of the wo...

Living Hope

The Rejoice Youth Choir has been on a mission tour to Philadelphia this week and will be leading us in worship on Sunday. The songs for the week will reflect the missional heart behind their work. Prelude "O Sifuni Mungu" This is a great call to worship that is in the African Swahili language. It does have some English quotations of "All Creatures." This is our tie into...
