Hi Friends,

I’m excited this Sunday to be getting back into our series in Luke.  It’s been a long break!  I think God has a really important word for us from a parable that is pretty confusing, yet beautiful.  It’s been said that money makes our world go around.  But Jesus turns that statement on its head.  I look forward to showing you how and the difference that this is meant to make in our lives.

Also, remember that we have a family meeting at 8pm on Sunday.  We are going to be talking about some important things for the Fall.  Here’s the Zoom link:  https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89387519073?pwd=K1FLTXJRVnBpZUN1TlJvN3FYOXJTZz09

Meeting ID: 893 8751 9073
Passcode: 924953

See you on the best day of the week!

Pastor Jeff

Sunday Prayer Meeting 9am

Deliver me from sinking in the mire; let me be delivered from my enemies and from the deep waters. Let not the flood sweep over me, or the deep swallow me up, or the pit close its mouth over me. Answer me, O LORD, for your steadfast love is good; according to your abundant mercy, turn to me. (Psa 69:14-16 ESV)

Call To Worship:

 

Psalm 148:1-13 (ESV)

Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens; praise him in the heights! Praise him, all his angels; praise him, all his hosts! Praise him, sun and moon, praise him, all you shining stars! Praise him, you highest heavens, and you waters above the heavens! Let them praise the name of the LORD! For he commanded and they were created. And he established them forever and ever; he gave a decree, and it shall not pass away. Praise the LORD from the earth, you great sea creatures and all deeps, fire and hail, snow and mist, stormy wind fulfilling his word! Mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars! Beasts and all livestock, creeping things and flying birds! Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all rulers of the earth! Young men and maidens together, old men and children! Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted; his majesty is above earth and heaven.

Scripture Reading:

 

Benediction:

 

Romans 8:31-32 (ESV)

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?
