Church Announcement

 

To assist our church in the time before our next pastor is called our church council has put a plan in place to help maintain and coordinate the ongoing ministry of our church.

 

First, you are encouraged to contact your elders and deacons with any needs or questions. Your elders include Jeremy, Larry, Jay, and Lynn; deacons are Andy, Dustin, Darin, and Jake.

 

Second, beginning in September and continuing through year end, Lynn will lead our worship services. As provided by our church order, classis has authorized Lynn to administer Holy Communion through the remainder of the year.

 

Lynn will be available for hospital visits and prayer before surgeries if requested. He will also be available to assist families with funeral arrangements and if requested, officiate at member funerals. A regular schedule of in-person visits for our senior members will be established.

 

The council believes it is important to maintain our focus, continue to carry out our ministries, and care for our members while we look forward to God’s provision of our next pastor.

 

Again, you are encouraged to contact any of your council if questions or needs arise.

Praise on the mountain

My enemies drown in

As long as I’m breathing

I’ve got a reason to

Chorus 1

Praise the Lord oh my soul

Praise the Lord oh my soul

Verse 2

I’ll praise when I feel it

And I’ll praise when I don’t

I’ll praise 'cause I know

You’re still in control

'Cause my praise is a weapon

It’s more than a sound

My praise is the shout

That brings Jericho down

Chorus 2

Praise the Lord oh my soul

Praise the Lord oh my soul

I won’t be quiet

My God is alive

How could I keep it inside

Praise the Lord oh my soul

If The Lord Builds The House

Verse 1

I’ve built up my own name

But the walls couldn’t stand

I’ve trusted my own strength

But it was sinking sand

So I put my ruins into Your hands

And watch You restore them

Like only You can

Chorus

If the Lord builds the house

Nobody can tear it down

If the Lord builds the house

Nobody can tear it down

When it’s built on his name there’s

Nothing gonna shake this ground

If the Lord builds the house

Nobody can tear it down

Interlude

Ooo ooo

Verse 2

The bricks may be weathered

Through storm and through fire

But what God holds together

It stands firm every time

'Cause my life is anchored on this solid truth

That whatever God's building

No it can’t be moved

Bridge

As for me and my house

We’re gonna serve You Lord

So here’s the keys come on in

Everything we have is Yours

(REPEAT)

Here’s the keys won’t You come on in

Everything we have is Yours

If the Lord builds the house

Guide for Living: Philippians 2:12-30

12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.

14 Do everything without grumbling or arguing, 15 so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.”[a] Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky 16 as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain. 17 But even if I am being poured out like a drink offering on the sacrifice and service coming from your faith, I am glad and rejoice with all of you. 18 So you too should be glad and rejoice with me.

19 I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon, that I also may be cheered when I receive news about you. 20 I have no one else like him, who will show genuine concern for your welfare. 21 For everyone looks out for their own interests, not those of Jesus Christ. 22 But you know that Timothy has proved himself, because as a son with his father he has served with me in the work of the gospel. 23 I hope, therefore, to send him as soon as I see how things go with me. 24 And I am confident in the Lord that I myself will come soon.

25 But I think it is necessary to send back to you Epaphroditus, my brother, co-worker and fellow soldier, who is also your messenger, whom you sent to take care of my needs. 26 For he longs for all of you and is distressed because you heard he was ill. 27 Indeed he was ill, and almost died. But God had mercy on him, and not on him only but also on me, to spare me sorrow upon sorrow. 28 Therefore I am all the more eager to send him, so that when you see him again you may be glad and I may have less anxiety. 29 So then, welcome him in the Lord with great joy, and honor people like him, 30 because he almost died for the work of Christ. He risked his life to make up for the help you yourselves could not give me.

Assurance of Pardon: Philippians 2:6-12

Who, being in very nature[a] God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; 7 rather, he made himself nothing  by taking the very nature[b] of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man,  he humbled himself  by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross! 9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 12 Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling,

Children's Message: "I Belong to Jesus"

Bible reading: Philippians 1:1-6

 Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus, To all God’s holy people in Christ Jesus at Philippi, together with the overseers and deacons[a]:

2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. 7 It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart and, whether I am in chains or defending and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God’s grace with me. 8 God can testify how I long for all of you with the affection of Christ Jesus. 9 And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, 10 so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, 11 filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God. 12 Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters,[b] that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel. 13 As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard[c] and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. 14 And because of my chains, most of the brothers and sisters have become confident in the Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear. 15 It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. 16 The latter do so out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel.

Lead On Good Shepherd

Verse 1

Well I’ve been turned 'round

But I’ve never been lost

Seen the water get troubled

But we walked across

When my knees were shaking

You held my hand

Turning my problems

To a promised land

Chorus

Lead on Good Shepherd

I’ll follow all my days

There ain’t nothing sweeter

Than to watch You make a way

You’ve walked me through the valley

But You never steered me wrong

So lead on Good Shepherd lead on

Verse 2

Seen some mighty deep canyons

That You brought me through

Seen some mighty big mountains

That just up and moved

Glory glory hallelujah

Yeah that’s my song

Walking with my Father

Into the great unknown

Bridge

Step by step day by day

Lead me on Lord I pray

Road gets dark walk by faith

Lead on Good Shepherd
