This Sunday, October 30th, we will be meeting in the 130 Foundry Building only at 10 AM! There is no 12 PM service this week.
Aaron Slaten will be speaking this Sunday, and this is what he has to say about his sermon:
This week we will be taking a break from Luke and focusing on the life of Joseph. Joseph came from a family who’s story would make the folks on the Jersey Shore blush. It is a story of betrayal, delivery and redemption. We find ourselves in this story in countless ways and as always we see Jesus as the great deliverer of his people.
Worship Set List:
Our response to a glorious God who has loved us beyond all measure is one of praise, adoration and joy.
- Gathering Song - Hosanna
The God of forever. The Alpha, Omega, Beginning and End. The loving, lasting, unchanging, compassionate King of the universe is the gracious Father who has looked upon us as His own children.
“And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved—and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God” - Ephesians 2:1-8
“Your love does not depend on what I do, Your love is freedom and it pleases You, You come and cover me in loving truth, You’re holy, holy over me.”
- Communion - Holy Over Me
When Joseph’s brothers saw that their father was dead, they said, “It may be that Joseph will hate us and pay us back for all the evil that we did to him.” So they sent a message to Joseph, saying, “Your father gave this command before he died: ‘Say to Joseph, “Please forgive the transgression of your brothers and their sin, because they did evil to you.”’ And now, please forgive the transgression of the servants of the God of your father.” Joseph wept when they spoke to him. His brothers also came and fell down before him and said, “Behold, we are your servants.” But Joseph said to them, “Do not fear, for am I in the place of God? As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today. So do not fear; I will provide for you and your little ones.” Thus he comforted them and spoke kindly to them. - Genesis 50:15-21
See you there at 10 am!
