Worship and Message theme:
What kinds of storms do you face? Recently, Tropical Storm Isaias devastated parts of our region. Tragic explosions rocked Beirut. COVID-19 deaths and cases are rising. Storms are dangerous. We always ask God to calm the storms. There are other storms we face, too. Emotional storms. Economic storms. Spiritual storms. Storms can also look like chaos, confusion, and complexity. Though God does not calm every storm, Jesus can calm us in every storm. This week, who will you invite into your “boat” when you’re stuck in the storms you face? Find out how Jesus is ready to enter the boat of your life, your family, your community, your church, and future. It’s time to experience calm in the storm.
Worship begins with a powerful hymn of praise titled Raise A Hallelujah, a song of prayer for all those affected by COVID-19. It was written by Jonathan & Melissa Helser in 2013 as they prayed for a friend’s critically ill child. Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) is a 2013 song by Australian worship group, Hillsong United that tells the story of today’s Gospel lesson. Oceans was the #1 Christian song of the last decade on the Billboard music Hot Christian Songs Chart. We close the service with a well-loved Fanny Crosby hymn written in 1872, To God Be The Glory, first Introduced at a London Crusade in 1954 by Billy Graham.
