Welcome… we gather because… last week… today…

1 Praise the Lord.

How good it is to sing praises to our God,

    how pleasant and fitting to praise him!

2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem;

he gathers the exiles of Israel.

3 He heals the brokenhearted

    and binds up their wounds.

4 He determines the number of the stars

and calls them each by name.

5 Great is our Lord and mighty in power;

    his understanding has no limit.                                                                     -Psalm 147:1-5 NIV 

Let us sing to the God who…

Come Thou Fount



Psalm 51 dramatic reading over ambient music

Psalm 51


…the joy of the comfort found in the beatitudes a foretaste of the promised comfort from Revelation:

3-5 I heard a voice thunder from the Throne: “Look! Look! God has moved into the neighborhood, making his home with men and women! They’re his people, he’s their God. He’ll wipe every tear from their eyes. Death is gone for good—tears gone, crying gone, pain gone—all the first order of things gone.” The Enthroned continued, “Look! I’m making everything new. Write it all down—each word dependable and accurate.”   -Revelation 21:3-5 The Message 

Giving- participating in the life of the church is another way we can experience a foretaste of the day when God will make everything anew.

…transformed into a people who lean into the discipline of cultivating peace…



Break Every Chain     


Over Death       


As you go from here into the week ahead,

with whatever joys and challenges it holds,

do not be discouraged or disheartened.

Remember the glory that awaits you as a child of God.

Hold on to that truth;

live in that hope.

And may the peace of God,

the blessing of Jesus Christ,

and the presence of the Holy Spirit

be with you and among you.

Amen. Peace be with you!
