We hope you will join us for worship each week. Here is some information that you might like to have about this week’s worship service.

1-20-2019 temple n the wilderness

 

Scripture: Matthew 4:1-17 (p. 881, Pew Bible)

Focus Scripture – The tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” But he answered, “It is written, ‘One does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” (Matthew 4:3-4)

Message: In the Wilderness

Theme: Our temptations can serve as distractions that keep us from truly connecting with God, with ourselves, and with others.

Hymns We Will Sing:

*HYMN #166      “Lord, Who Throughout These Forty Days” (ST. FLAVIAN)

*HYMN #175   “Seek Ye First”    (LAFFERTY)

*HYMN #339   “Lift Every Voice and Sing” (LIFT EVERY VOICE)

Prayer of the Day: God of strength, your son Jesus withstood many temptations because his love for you was greater than his earthly desires. Make our love for you so strong, that we might withstand anything that threatens to stand between us and your love. Amen
