Greetings, everyone! Thanks to all those who joined us for Pre-Election Prayer on Monday evening, both live and virtually. Seventeen of us were praying in the sanctuary and four more joined by ZOOM. We had a sweet time of prayer and intercession for our country, our leaders, and for the election. We continue to pray for our country post-election as we seek God's wisdom.
MBC: Last week, the Bridgmans, the Deans, and myself joined around 800 other messengers to represent our church to the Missouri Baptist Convention Annual Meeting. The Annual Meeting and all the meetings attendant to it provided a great time for us to carry out the business of the MBC, with which our church is happily affiliated. Here is a link to the Pathway to read highlights of the meeting.
TODAY our deacons met to pray for the membership, tend to widows and benevolence matters, and move forward on the process of deacon nominations for 2021, among other things. Please pray for them as they do the work for which the church has set them apart.
TOMORROW is THE LORD’S DAY! Bible study for all ages meets at 9:30 am, and you are invited to be a part of a group. If you haven't yet attached to one, it is never too late. Join us tomorrow.
For morning worship, we will begin a series through the Gospel of Luke. Tomorrow will be an overview sermon to introduce the man, his message, and the meaning of the book for us as believers today. I am excited to start this expositional journey with you that will be an investment of time for us and will yield rich treasures from the store of Scripture.
Our service will be framed by the following Scriptures. Please take a few moments to read and meditate on these passages in preparation for worship tomorrow:
Fighter Verse: 1 Timothy 6:6-7
Call to Worship: Psalm 78:1-4
Old Testament Reading: Joshua 24:1-3, 14-25
New Testament Readings: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
Assurance of God's Pardon: Psalm 32:1-2
Sermon Passage: Luke 1:1-4
Benediction: Numbers 6:24-26
ICYMI: Last Sunday’s Message Ruth 4: Redemption Applied
