It’s wintry outside, but summer will be here before we know it… along with our Beaver Camp retreat (6/27-6/30). Lodging is limited and needs to be confirmed much earlier than normal this year. Please let Denise know ASAP if you or anyone in your immediate family is interested in reserving a spot. She needs your reservation and a $50 deposit NO LATER THAN Sunday, Feb. 4th. After that date, IF any lodging is still available, we will be able to open it up to friends or extended family before we need to turn in our final count. Talk to Denise if you have any questions.

Bible Trivia
“Jesus Christ, our savior, was born on Christmas Day” (from the carol “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”) No date for the birth of Jesus is mentioned in the Bible, so why does the world celebrate Christmas on December 25th?
Answer: It is the date of a pagan festival taken over by the early church.
In the absence of a biblical basis for the timing of Christmas, the church seems to have “adopted” the pagan practice of a festival around the time of the Winter Solstice. This had the double advantage of being an existing time for celebration that took place when agricultural work was at a minimum.

It is not known whether Archbishop Usher had an opinion on Christmas Day but he did calculate that the first full day of creation was October 23rd 4004 BC.

How many days after the birth of Christ did Joseph and Mary give him the name Jesus?
Answer: 8
It was required by law that eight days after the birth of a son they would circumcise him and name him. They followed the law and circumcised him and named him Jesus, as the angel had told them to, eight days after his birth. This can be found in Luke 2:21.

What, according to the Holy Gospels of Luke and Matthew, is generally considered the earliest time after His birth at which the Wise Men or Magi could have visited the baby Jesus? (Hint: the Holy Family left for a foreign country soon after their departure.)
Answer: After the baby Jesus was presented in the Temple (after the 41st day)

Since Joseph and his wife Mary and son Jesus escaped to Egypt as soon as the Magi had worshiped Jesus and presented their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh and returned to their land, it is generally widely accepted, given the time constraints, that this Magi visit would have occurred only after the Presentation of Jesus (which would have happened sometime after the 40th day from His birth, according to Leviticus 12:1-8) in the Temple.
(Matthew 2:11,13-14) – “On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. … When they had gone, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream. ‘Get up,’ he said, ‘take the child and his mother and escape to Egypt. Stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to search for the child to kill him.’ So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt.”
(Luke 2:22) – ‘When the time came for the purification rites required by the Law of Moses, Joseph and Mary took Him to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord (as it is written in the Law of the Lord, ‘Every firstborn male is to be consecrated to the Lord.’)”
Also, the Magi were not necessarily three (sometimes believed because of the three gifts) in number, although three being a God number (Father, Son and the Holy Spirit) is favored. All we know is that they were two or more in number. Additionally, Mary and Joseph offered two pigeons at the Presentation, rather than the more expensive option of lamb and turtledove (Leviticus 12:1-8), which implies they had not yet received the costly Magi gifts.

There is a new 2024 sign-up sheet for fellowship snack. I want to encourage everyone to sign up to take a turn for this, it doesn’t need to be elaborate, so really anyone can help in this way.

Trey’s second mission trip to Uganda is planned for January 9-27. This time he will cross the “big pond” alone, but on arriving, Trey will be with the ground coordinator and Ugandan EAI (East Africa Discipleship Initiative) overseer, Pastor Patrick Mbula. (My team and I worked with him this past October.) If you would like to help Trey monetarily or with some of the school supplies, he would like to take. Please speak with him to find out how you can do this.

Bible Trivia
What was the name of the first son of Abraham?
Answer: Ishmael
While Isaac dominated as the son of Abraham, Ishmael was the first son of Abraham, and he became the father of Ishmaelites.

What animal did the staff of Moses turn into when he went to confront Pharaoh to let the Israelites go?
Answer: Snake
Turning his staff into a snake was one of the earliest signs Moses showed Pharoah, who had his magicians perform magic, but none was any match to the power of God in Moses.

How many plagues did God unleash on Egypt to force Pharaoh to let His people go?
Answer: 10
It took ten terrible plagues before Pharaoh was forced to let the Israelites leave Egypt, and even after they left, he sent his army after them.

No study book needs to be purchased; just bring your Bible. If you are interested in attending, read Mark chapter 1 before Feb. 16th.

The best way to celebrate Valentine is to remember the love of God. The Bible says, ‘for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son…’ It is a time of giving. Unfortunately, however, it has become a promiscuous kind of thing. But it should be a time of giving, because if you look at the origin of Valentine, it was about the priest, who actually showed sincere love to humanity. Valentine reminds us of the gift of God to mankind and true love of God in our hearts. That we have to also love the way God loves. God loves unconditionally and sacrificially, as He loves till the very end.


We still need volunteers to bless us with Fellowship Snacks for May and June.
Please see the sign up sheet at the enterence of the sanctuary.

Announcements
MCC relief collection has been sent to their drop off site in Ephrata Pa. We collected a total of 19 completed kits, (11 school, 4 hygiene, 4 infant). Plus, several large bags of extra school supplies, soaps, first aid supplies, and blankets. Thank you everyone for your donations and love for others in the name of Christ.


Thank you to all those who filled out the recent survey. Again, it was an attempt to find places where we are like minded and could then unify together more specifically and strategically. Sunday school was almost unanimously checked. The next category that received the most checks was fellowship times. The church council is planning some Sunday fellowship meals in the near future and discerning how else we might get together. If you haven’t filled out a survey you still may and put it in Kevin’s mailbox.

Happy October Birthday to;

God is for life
An LMC statement on the overturning of Roe v. Wade (6/22)
As followers of Jesus, seeking to be a Spirit-led kingdom movement, we gladly proclaim that Jesus is life (John 11:25) and that he has come to bring abundant life to this broken and death-filled world (John 10:10). We believe that God is for life and that this includes each developing child in their mother’s womb. As Psalm 139 teaches us, the God of life is the one who forms the unborn child in the womb (v. 13) and plans out the child’s days before they are born (v. 16).
It is our prayer that the overturning of Roe v. Wade by the Supreme Court of the United States is a step toward an affirmation of life in our broader society. We know, however, that the country is deeply divided over abortion and its availability. We recognize that people cannot even agree whether the embryo in a mother’s womb is a human life or not, and so it is difficult to communicate without talking past one another.
We are aware that not everyone shares our values as followers of Jesus. Many will see this decision as an imposition of our Christian values on them and may resent it.
We also understand that abortion is still accessible in this country. And even if it were not legal, this would not stop abortions from taking place.
In light of all this we urge you as God’s new creation:
• To affirm and share the good news that Jesus is life and that he brings new life to this world. It is through God’s Word and Spirit that hearts and minds are changed.
• To witness to the powers-that-be that unborn children are human beings created in the image of God and that they are loved by God.
• To be consistently pro-life in all areas of life and not just with unborn children.
And to be active in assisting and caring for mothers with unwanted pregnancies before and after the child is born, welcoming them just as Jesus welcomed and blessed them (Mark 10:13-16). When we do this, we not only welcome the child, but also Jesus and indeed God (Mark 9:36-37).

Question 1 – Pniel

Question 2 – Dispersed strangers

Announcements

In place of Tuesday night prayer meetings, there will be prayer time before church @ 8:45 starting next Sunday, May 22nd.

Next Sunday there will be a prayer and share time. Please be mindful during the week of anything that God is putting on your heart to share.

Fellowship snacks this month will be canceled. Lynn had signed up to bring snacks this month, and I’m sorry to say I won’t have time to prepare and pull this off. Thanks for understanding.

Hearts and Hands are in need of volunteers. Even offering to drive someone is a huge help. Please see the note on the bulletin board.

Our annual Beaver Camp weekend is June 30th-July 3rd. Is there any interest this year?? Camp would like to know how many cabins and motel units we will be using sooner rather than later. It helps them to know what lodging is open for anyone else who calls looking for availability that weekend. As of right now, we have 6 cabins and 10 motel units set aside for us to use. Pricing will be similar to last year. If you are willing to commit to going that weekend (or if you have friends and family that would be willing to commit) please mark your bulletin tab or talk to Denise ASAP, but no later than Today.

Memorial Day Picnic at Don & Paulette’s. Starts at 1pm with a hot dog roast, and hike afterwards. Everyone is welcome (even if you’re not interested in the hike).
Please bring a dish to share, your own drinks and lawn chairs.

Bible Trivia Answers;
Question 1 -Palm Sunday recalls an event in the Christian Scripture (The New Testament) of Jesus entering into Jerusalem and being greeted by the people waving palm branches. For Christians, it is a reminder of the welcoming of Jesus into our hearts and of our willingness to follow him.

Question 2 -The symbolism of the donkey may refer to the Eastern tradition that it is an animal of peace, unlike the horse which is the animal of war. A king would have ridden a horse when he was bent on war and ridden a donkey to symbolize his arrival in peace.

Question 3 -Palm branches were regarded as tokens of joy and triumph and were customarily used on festive occasions (Leviticus 23:40, Nehemiah 8:15). Kings and conquerors were welcomed with palm branches being strewn before them and waved in the air.

Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve…But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord (Joshua 24:15).

As you got up, I watched and hoped you would talk to me. Just a few words, such as thanking me for something good in your life yesterday or last week would do.
But I noticed you were busy selecting the right clothes for work. I waited again to hear from you. When you ran around the house collecting papers, I knew there would be a few minutes to stop and say hello, but you never slowed down.
I wanted to tell you that I could help you accomplish more than you ever dreamed possible if you would just spend some of each day with me. At one point, you waited fifteen minutes in a chair with nothing to do. I waited to hear from you.
Then I saw you spring to your feet; I thought you wanted to talk to me, but you ran to the phone and called a friend. I watched as off to work you went and waited patiently all day long to hear from you. With all your activities you were too busy to talk with me.
I noticed at lunch you looked around; maybe you just felt embarrassed to talk to me. You glanced three tables over and noticed some of your friends talking to me before they ate, but you wouldn’t.
There was still more time left, and I hoped that we would talk. You went home and had many things to do. After they were done, you turned on the TV; just about anything goes there and you spend many hours watching. I waited as you continued watching TV and ate your meal but again you wouldn’t talk to me.
At bedtime you were totally tired. After you said good night to your family you plopped into bed and fell asleep. I had so much wanted to be part of your day. We could have had so much fun and accomplished so much together.
I love you so much that I wait every day for a thought, prayer or thanks. Well, maybe tomorrow! I’ll be waiting.

Your Friend,

God

Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve…But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord (Joshua 24: 15) With a new year upon us, it is a good time to affirm once again our desire to be a follower of Jesus or perhaps decide to do so for the first time. The good news is that Christ reconciles us to the Father through his blood shed for us in order that we may be made holy and be in right relationship with Him. Let us put our trust in Him, praise Him and surrender our lives to Him more fully today.

Open your heart to God and he will meet you on your journey. We believe that Jesus has restored us to God and invite you to join us in following Him.

Beaver Camp ~ Did you know?
In 1914 a Dorothy Jackson and her husband bought the property were
Beaver Camp is located from a Mary Fisher. The Jacksons hired a person to
build the main lodge. They were the original owners of the dining room
tables, bookshelves, and other furniture still in use today.
In 1946, Rev. O.T. Anderson purchased the property and started
Beaver Camp for Boys. James and Lois Shapland bought and operated the
camp until 1969. In 1964 Mennonite families and churches formed a
committee to investigate the property. This committee was called the
Adirondack Mennonite Camping Association (AMCA).
In the winter of 1969, the real estate agent for the Beaver Camp for Boys took the AMCA committee members on a tour of a very snow-covered Beaver Camp. It was quite an impressive journey as they had to cross a washed-out creek with planks, and the pictures show a person carrying
an infant along the tour. Jerry Boshart notes that they also had to trudge
over a number of high snowbanks. Another interesting side note is that
Cal Beachy discovered prefabricated motel units in Batavia NY around 1975
(24 units) –purchased for $1500 and transported to Beaver Camp.
This and many other interesting stories can be found in the Beaver Camp hardcover book, published in 2019.
Many thanks to Jerry and Verna Mae for letting me borrow this book.
(Jerry is a great person to share more stories about the history of Beaver
Camp).

The above picture is the construction of the Pavilion started in October 1970
and fully enclosed by 1973

Thank you, Jack Keough

“For I Know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11). Let us remember in our daily lives that God does have a plan for each of us and that we need to place our trust in Him. Reflect on that this morning as we worship together with our church family.

Welcome
Taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the one who takes refuge in him. Fear the Lord, you his holy people, for those who fear him lack nothing. The lions may grow weak and hungry but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing (Ps. 34:8-10) May you experience God’s goodness as you worship this morning and throughout your week.

Welcome
Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord; Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy. If you, Lord, kept a record of sins, Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, so that we can, with reverence, serve you (Ps. 130: 1-4). We are a body of believes who put our trust in an all-knowing and ever-present God; one who knows our shortcomings but forgives us when we ask for it. We know that Jesus loves us and faithfully works in our lives.

Pentecost is also called Whitsunday is celebrated on Sunday that falls on the 50th day of Easter. The name is derived from the Greek word “pentekoste” which means fiftieth as Pentecost Sunday takes place on the 50th day of Easter.
Pentecost significance
It is a big festival in the Christian church that observes the descent of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles and other disciples following the Crucifixion, Resurrection, and Ascension of Jesus Christ. It also marks the beginning of the Christian church’s mission to the world, according to the Britannica.
The festival marks an end to the Easter cycle, which starts 90 days before with Ash Wednesday at the beginning of Lent.
When is Pentecost Sunday 2021?
Pentecost is observed on the seventh Sunday after Easter and 10 days after Ascension. As the date of Whit Sunday is decided according to the date of Easter, this day is a changeable feast.
The earliest day, Pentecost Sunday took place was on May 10th (in 1818) and the latest possible date for Pentecost is June 13th (in 2038). This year the Pentecost Sunday will be observed on Sunday, May 23rd.
Why is it called Pentecost Sunday?
Whit Sunday celebrates the Holy Spirit coming in the form of flames to the Apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ, as recorded in the New Testament in Acts 2:1-31, the fifth book of the New Testament of the Bible. Many Christians recognize the descent of the Holy Spirit as the birth of the Church.

Pentecost is known by Whitsunday in the United Kingdom. “Whitsunday” is usually referred to as the white garments previously worn by the baptism candidates on this feast.
Pentecost is called “Pfingsten” in Germany. It mostly coincides with the beginning of many outdoor and springtime activities in the country.

Dear Gracious God,
We thank you for adopting us into your family through the miracle of your grace, and for calling us to be brothers and sisters to each other. Today, loving God, we pray for our mothers:
• who cared for us when we were helpless
• who comforted us when we were hurt
• whose love and care we often took for granted.
Today we pray for:
• those who are grieving the loss of their mother,
• those who never knew their biological mother, and now yearn for her
• those who have experienced the wonder of an adopted mother’s love
• the families separated by war or conflict.
• Lord, give them special blessings.
Keep us united with you and with each other, so that we can be and become all that we are meant to be.

Thursday, May 6, is the National Day of Prayer, observed in the USA since 1952. Because of Covid 19 restrictions there was no observance last year in Lancaster as there usually is. However, this year there is a gathering planned at the Lancaster Town Hall. Everyone is invited to attend, we are meeting in front of the Lancaster Town Hall, 21 Central Ave, from 12:00-12:45 pm. and again in the evening at the Lancaster Presbyterian Church from 7:00-8:00 pm. Our nation is in dire need of the intervention of God to turn us back to His principles as given in His written Word. Please join us in these prayer events.

Publicly express your pro-life convictions at the largest pro-life event in NY – the Walk for Life Weekend! Redesigned to maximize pro-life participation across WNY and beyond. Get inspired at the Online Walk Rally on Friday, April 30 from 7:00PM-8:00PM. Then put feet to your passion at the In-Person Walk at Buffalo’s Delaware Park and Rochester’s Highland Park Bowl on Saturday, May 1 from 9:00AM-12:00PM.
The goal is to serve 1,025 women seriously considering abortion and expand life-saving services to a third abortion hub city. Raising $584,000 through the Walk for Life Weekend makes achieving these goals possible.

Let these words of assurance from our Heavenly Father encourage and comfort your heart today regardless of what you are facing this week. Choose to rest in Him. The good news is that Christ reconciles us to the Father through his blood shed for us in order that we may be made holy and be in right relationship with Him. Let us put our trust in Him, praise Him and surrender our lives to Him more fully today.

Welcome
I Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples. For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods (Ps. 96:1-4). We are a body of believers in Jesus who put our hope in God our Savior and praise him continually. It is our desire that you would experience, in our service today, the love, comfort and encouragement that Jesus offers each of us. If you are unsure about what it means to be reconciles to God, it would be our delight to talk with you about it.

Welcome
Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from sin.

Diane Crowe is in need of some help, many of us remember Diane and know that she has had some very difficult health issues recently. Thankfully she is home now but due to exhausting all of the allowance her health coverage gives, she is looking for people to come help her walk and do a few other needs. If you have a free half hour or so and could give Diane a helping hand, please give her a call at 697-4632.


We will be having a Christmas Program date to be announced. Everyone is invited to participate by singing or playing a song, performing a skit, reading a poem performing a dance, etc. to give honor and praise to the newborn King. So put some thought into it and start practicing!


Grace in Community would like to invite AMC to a Thanksgiving Service on Wednesday November 25th at 7 pm. They will be having a special worship time and communion.

On Monday Hurricane Eta Struck Central America, and it’s effects hit Eastern Guatemala hard, where Hope of Life International is located.  Raging rivers, flooding and mud slides have devastated the area.  Many of us have some kind of a connection to Hope of Life, either we have been there, sponsor a child from there or have prayed for them through the years. Our brother and sisters at HOL and that area so badly devastated need our prayers more than ever now.  Please pray for the Lord to protect and strengthen them through this difficult time and provide for all their needs.

Welcome
I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever. Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever. Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom (Ps. 145:1-3). Christ reconciles us to the Father through his blood shed for us in order that we may be made holy. Let us praise Him and surrender our lives to him more fully today.

You, O Lord are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. Turn to us and have mercy on us; grant your strength to your servants and save our children(Ps. 86: 15-16). We, as a congregation, want to bring honor to Him in all we do. It is our desire that you would experience, in our service today, the love, comfort and encouragement that Jesus offers each of us. If you are unsure about what it means to be reconciled to God, it would be our delight to talk with you.

Welcome
Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord; Lord, hear my voice. Let your ears be attentive to my cry for mercy. If you, Lord, kept a record of sins, Lord, who could stand? But with you there is forgiveness, so that we can, with reverence, serve you (Ps. 130: 1-4). We are a body of believes who put our trust in an all-knowing and ever-present God; one who knows our shortcomings but forgives us when we ask for it. We know that Jesus loves us and faithfully works in our lives.

BE A TOURIST
One of the most popular tourist attractions in our area is Niagara Falls. With fewer out of town visitors expected, you can enjoy this natural wonder right in our own backyard. There are plenty of paved scenic walkways that are a leisurely stroll for most people and beginner–level hikes such as Great Gorge Scenic Overlook Hike and Upper Great Gorge Hike. Don’t miss Goat Island for a closer look at the top of Horseshoe Falls. There are longer, more challenging hikes as well, such as Devil’s Hole Rapids and Whirlpool Rapids Adventure Hike. You’ll need proper footwear and a moderate level of fitness. Don’t venture off the marked trails. It’s easy to slip into the gorge.

Make Christmas cookie dough in advance:
Dave Schmidt has suggested making and freezing the dough for your favorite Christmas cookies. Think of the time this could save at such a busy time of the year. Dave is also available for any taste testing of the yummy end result! https://www.goodlifeeats.com/tip-how-to-freeze-cookie-dough/ https://www.tasteofhome.com/collection/our-best-christmas-cookie-recipes/


Family game night: Have a weekly game night, and rotate who chooses the game. We’ll be playing Monopoly this weekend at my house. The first time, we’ll use the Hasbro rules. The second time, we may use the lesser-known rules from The Landlord’s Game, the original game created by Elizabeth Magie Phillips.


Lego challenges: Give everyone a bag of Lego pieces and charge your crew with building a house, a store, a park, their school or a castle in the sky — and then set the timer. Creativity wins! (There are great 30-day Lego challenges to be found online.)

Announcements:

Fun Pandemic Activity Ideas;
Make a time capsule.
Find a small box, and then walk around your house gathering items that represent the reality of your present-day life: A newspaper or magazine, photographs, recent receipts, last week’s grocery store list, letters or greeting cards, and so on. You could even include a flash drive with photos or a video you and your family make for your “future selves” to watch. Put it all in the box, tape it up securely, and write a date on the outside saying when you’re allowed to open it — say, 10 or 15 years from now. You’ll probably have fun compiling a slice of your daily life, and you’ll enjoy reflecting on those items in the future even more, when your lives and the world have changed.


Try Geocaching.
Part outdoor adventure, part treasure hunt, Geocaching — hiking in search of hidden “caches” you can track by their GPS coordinates — is one of our family’s favorite frugal activities. If you have a GPS device or a smartphone, you don’t need to buy anything else to get started.


Just visit Geocaching.com and type in your home address (or the address where you plan to be walking or hiking), and you’ll likely find a few geocaches stashed in the area. Pick one, add the coordinates to your GPS (or just use the app on your smartphone), and head out the door, letting your device serve as a treasure map.

Do some amateur stargazing.
Go outside on a clear evening, preferably away from city lights, and look up at the sky. Use some handy star maps or an app such as SkyView Free to know what you’re looking at. Spread out some blankets on the ground, lay flat on your back, stare upwards, and realize how magnificent the universe is around you.


Make Christmas gifts in advance.
If you know already that some people will be on your Christmas list, why not spend some time now making them interesting and thoughtful gifts and saving yourself some money over the long haul? Make them some homemade soap, some homemade hot chocolate mix, and maybe a bottle of homemade beer as a gift. Prepare all of these items, then go ahead and box and wrap them, since they’ll stay good for months.
Not only is the gift less expensive than what you’d spend at your local department store, it’s also more thoughtful, and it’ll save you time during the harried Christmas season.

The Holy Spirit: Dew
I will be like the dew to Israel.
Hosea 14:5
The Holy Spirit is Dew who can refresh your spirit with His presence today. Feel Him! He is Dew, coming gently to leave refreshment, even when you can’t see with your physical eyes. Do you feel the spiritual moisture? He is Dew who leaves your spiritual face damp when it’s not raining. Experience Him! He is Dew, coming silently, invisibly and softly; let His presence work in your life.
Lord, be Dew to refresh me when I’m tired. The unsaved don’t understand spirituality, nor do they believe in You. Be Dew to moisten my arid soul, to refresh my spirit this day.
The Holy Spirit is Dew to reinvigorate your vision; open up your soul to see more things from God. He is Dew to reignite those who are about to give up the battle; let Him re-equip you for spiritual warfare. He is Dew to reinvigorate those who quit working. He can reenlist you this day. He is Dew, like the early morning dampness that makes the grass and plants grow, even when there’s no rain. Let Him be Dew who gives you new purpose in life.
Go Deeper: Hosea 14
The Holy Spirit refreshes our hearts like morning dew.

The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made. The Lord is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made (Ps. 145:9, 13b). We are a body of believers who trust that Jesus loves us and faithfully works in our lives. It is our desire that you would experience, in our service today, the love, comfort and encouragement that Jesus offers each of us. If you are unsure about what it means to be reconciled to God, it would be our delight to talk with you about that

Welcome

Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve…But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord (Joshua 24:15). With a new year upon us, it is a good time to affirm once again our desire to be a follower of Jesus or perhaps decide to do so for the first time. The good news is that Christ reconciles us to the Father through his blood shed for us in order that we may be made holy and be in right relationship with Him. Let us put our trust in Him, Praise Him and surrender our lives to Him more fully today.

Dear Lord God,
Please help me to choose You today, above all else.
Help me to know how to follow You.
Please help me to be wise with how I spend my time and where I place my affections.
Remove any selfish ways that You see in me.
I pray that Your Holy Spirit will transform my character so that I will be more and more like my Lord Jesus.
Help me to hear and to discern Your voice today.
May my love for You be evident in the way that I live my life.
Please help me to have eyes to see Your Kingdom Come.
Throughout this day, may You be seen through me.
May You be honored in my attitudes, in my words, in my choices.
Please lead me, Lord, to the place where I can find You.
Lead me to the place where You dwell.
Help me to remember that it is You, Lord, who shows mercy…

So it is God who decides to show mercy.
We can neither choose it nor work for it.
Romans 9:16

In Jesus’ name I pray,
Amen.

Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from sin. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me (Ps. 51: 1-2, 10). May you experience God’s grace and restoration as you worship with us this morning. Open your heart to God and he will meet you on your journey. We believe that Jesus has restored us to God and invite you to join us in following Him.

I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever. Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever. Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom (Ps. 145; 1-3). Christ reconciles us to the Father through his blood shed for us in order that we may be made holy. Let us praise Him and surrender our lives to him more fully today.
