Good afternoon, Good Shepherd!

 

Here is your weekly update and the worship preparation for this upcoming Sunday, Sept. 2.

 

Gather:

 

... for morning worship (9:30am) as Pastor Jud resumes the series on John as we look at John 7:53-8:11;

 

... for the evening worship (5pm) as we gather for our monthly prayer gathering;

 

... for our monthly fellowship lunch on Sunday, Sept. 2.  I'll send out the food assignments in a subsequent email;

Grow:

 

... by attending the adult Sunday school class starting Sept. 9.  Paul tells us to strive "side by side for the faith of the gospel."  Elsewhere, we are told to "exhort one another every day, as long as it is called today."  Again, the work of ministry is the work of all the saints of the church.  How do we cultivate a kind of church that we care well for one another?  Join the adult Sunday school class led by Pastor Jud as we study and discuss Ed Welch's book, "Caring for One Another" with the goal to love one another well because of God's love for us in Christ!

 

... by joining the Men's study on Sept. 8 at 6:30am at Pastor Marvel's as we study book 2 of Calvin's Institutes.  Here are the readings (book, chapter, section): 2.6.1,4; 2.7.1-8, 10-15

 

Give:

... your time and volunteer for various needs for the church body, such as nursery, coffee preparation, etc. See the bulletin for details;

 

Personal and Family Worship are great habits to warm your hearts to the blessings of the gospel promises and the joyful duties of walking by the Spirit by reading, singing, and praying.

 

Here is the list of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs we'll sing this Sunday to give you direction for personal and family worship:

 

#700, "Come, We That Love the Lord"
#552, "From out of the Depths I Cry"

#308, "Jesus Paid It All"
#149, "Teach Me, O Lord"

#508, "Jesus, Lover of My Soul"

#1, "All People That On Earth Do Dwell"

 

*Please note that the concluding doxology is changed to another tune.  In the hymnbook, we'll sing #732.
