Sunday Sermon - 02/24/2019 - 2 Timothy 4:6-8

Opening Prayer: O Holy God, you yourself are never worried, never fretful, never dismayed, for no circumstance or chaos or tragedy is outside the view of your all-seeing eye or beyond the reach your all-powerful hand. There is nothing that is news to you, nothing that is dangerous, nothing that is shocking, for you have known the desires of all hearts and the details of all plans from eternity past. How humorous and pitiable must our worry appear to you! And how much sorrow must we bring you when we forfeit the joy of salvation over passing pains and transient trials. Forgive us for our of our worry and our anger. Grant your people release from addiction to worry, that you may be honored in

Sunday Sermon - 02/17/2019 - 2 Timothy 4:1ff

Opening Prayer: O Holy God, though debauchery and injustice fester in our world and in our hearts, nevertheless you are the great judge of creation, and your righteous justice prevails in innumerable invisible ways. Teach us to fear you with adoration and humility, to call on you, as did Moses and Aaron and Samuel. Teach us to seek forgiveness for our sins, to offer forgiveness to those who have sinned against us, and to humbly accept the consequences and circumstances of our decisions. And so may you be honored in the righteousness and peacefulness of your people. We pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen. We pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen. Closing Prayer: O Holy God, how deceptive

Sunday Sermon - 02/10/2019 - 2 Timothy 3:10ff

Opening Prayer: O Holy God, though this past week we oscillated between passion and indifference, joy and sorrow, contentedness and unrest, nevertheless you have cared for us and brought us again into the congregation of the repentant. You again showed yourself perfectly faithful and kept us safe from countless invisible dangers; thank you for not abandoning us. Please accept our offerings of praise and thanksgiving. We pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen. Closing Prayer: O Holy God, we confess that the words of this hymn are difficult to live out, so prone are we to complaints and discontent. Forgive us of our arrogant unwillingness to submit to you in the hard situations of our lives. Gra

February 2019 Hymn of the Month

My Times of Sorrow and of Joy Words by Benjamin Beddone, 1818. Composed by Taylor Kami, 2019 My times of sorrow and joy, Great God, are in Thy hand; My choicest joys come from Thee, and go at Thy command. If Thou shouldst take them all away, yet would I not repine; Before they were possessed by me, they were entirely Thine Nor would I drop a murmuring word, though the whole world were gone, But I seek enduring pleasure in Thee, and The alone. What is the world with all its store? 'Tis but a bittersweet; When I attempt to pluck the rose, a pricking thorn I meet. Here perfect bliss can't be found, the honey's mix'd with gall; Midst changes and dying friends, be Thou my All in All. Our times

Sunday Sermon - 02/03/2019 - 2 Timothy 3:1ff

Opening Prayer: O Holy God, you are the refuge and deliverer and strong rock of your Church. You are the great cause of her sustained existence, and the sole reason for the bud of righteousness and humility that she bears. Thank you for your protection and providence. May your church cling to you and you alone as her source of unity and strength, and may the hearts of your people glow with divine humility. We pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen. Closing Prayer: O Holy God, how peculiar is the thought that our sorrows and joys are not wholly ours; indeed, as your plans for us extend into eternity past and into eternity future, in some sense our troubles and triumphs are infinitely more your
