Hi Friends,
This Sunday we are going to be studying the key essential that Jesus gives for the Christian life.  I am very excited (and burdened) to study this together as I believe this is something that most of us miss, resulting in major road blocks in our spiritual lives.
See you on the best day of the week!
Pastor Jeff
Call to Worship
Leader: Praise the LORD! I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation.
Congregation:  Great are the works of the LORD, studied by all who delight in them.
Leader:  Full of splendor and majesty is his work, and his righteousness endures forever. He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered; the LORD is gracious and merciful. He provides food for those who fear him; he remembers his covenant forever.
Congregation:  He has shown his people the power of his works, in giving them the inheritance of the nations. The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy;
Leader: they are established forever and ever, to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness. He sent redemption to his people; he has commanded his covenant forever. Holy and awesome is his name!
Congregation: The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever! (Psa 111:1-10 ESV)

Responding to God’s word in Song
  • Jesus Is Better
  • Jesus, I My Cross Have Taken
Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy, to the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. (Jud 1:24-25 ESV)
