It truly is our privilege to gather together each week for worship. In worship we make seeking God's wisdom a priority as we open our hearts, our minds and our lives to the Spirit's leading. As we do so we not only encourage one another in our faith, but we become a place where [as scripture tells us] "God is pleased to dwell!"
A couple of reminders:
• MARK YOUR CALENDAR as the season of Lent begins Wednesday, February 26th with our Soup Supper [at 6:00pm in Fellowship Hall] and Ash Wednesday worship at 7:00pm in the sanctuary.
• We Gather… Throughout the Lenten season on Wednesday nights from 6:30-7:30pm we will gather as a church community to worship and experience community with and for one another. These Wednesday evenings will be a time of worship, fellowship, music and prayer as we accept Jesus’ invitation to gather and share life together – I really hope you will join us!
My prayer is that as we head into the season of Lent you will make worship a priority so that you and our church community can be lead and transformed by the Spirit of God as we move forward in life and ministry.
Grace & Peace,
This week's worship information:
Sunday's Message: The Christian KPI
Scripture [first text is the focus of the sermon]:
Questions for Reflection:
- How have you been able to intentionally feed your spirit and grow in your faith during these first two months of 2020?
- There recently was a church whose sign said: “God prefers kind atheists over hateful Christians.” Do you agree with that? Why or why not?
- In the passage from Philippians it speaks of “having the same mind that was in Christ Jesus.” What do you think that means? What might that look like in your personal life? What might that look like for our church?
If then there is any encouragement in Christ, any consolation from love, any sharing in the Spirit, any compassion and sympathy, make my joy complete: be of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves. Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others. Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus.
Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty firmament!
Praise him for his mighty deeds;
praise him according to his surpassing greatness!
Praise him with trumpet sound;
praise him with lute and harp!
Praise him with tambourine and dance;
praise him with strings and pipe!
Praise him with clanging cymbals;
praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
Let everything that breathes praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!
