Worship Preview

We will gather around the Lord’s Table this week, and all are encouraged to remain for our Annual Congregational Meeting to follow.

Our collective spiritual arms are outstretched, and our hearts are open for new blessings that God has prepared for us to receive in 2022! Great Expectations is our theme for 2022 that will guide our worship and mission. Pastor Kevin’s message, What’s In Your Charter? takes us to Jesus’ hometown of Nazareth, which didn’t have the best of reputations. Great expectations from there? For example, when Nathaniel realized that Jesus came from Nazareth, he scornfully remarked to his brother Philip, “Can anything good come from there?” (John 1:46). Not likely, you might think. The religious leaders seemed to agree. They were so upset with Jesus’ personal Messiah claims and who God would bless in the future that they tried to… well, come to worship on Sunday and see what happened for yourself! We consider how Jesus was treated, and more importantly, why. What are Jesus’ great expectations of you? You be the judge.

Music Preview

Our service music begins with the Rev. Larry Moyer singing an a cappella solo of Amazing Grace, and we’ll enjoy his beautiful baritone voice.

Following Rev. Kevin Yoho’s message we will sing, “Take My Life, and Let it Be,” a hymn written by Francis Havergal. It is a testament to her dedication to the Lord as she begins each line of the hymn with “take,” meaning something freely offered in service to God.

Mr. Schutte was a 31-year-old Jesuit studying theology in Berkeley, Calif., when one of his friends asked him to write a song for an upcoming diaconate ordination service. “I sort of had to catch my breath, because he was knocking on my door on Wednesday and I knew the ordination was on Saturday.” On top of the short notice, Mr. Schutte had been suffering from the flu for several days. He sat at his desk with his guitar and a blank sheet of staff paper in front of him, praying, “God, if I’m going to do this for my friend, you’re going to have to help me.” He never imagined his song, and our closing hymn, “Here I Am, Lord,” would become so popular.

“…That you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:18).

Physical distancing and masks are required, even for fully vaccinated worshippers. Thank you for helping us all stay safe.
