Welcome

Welcome to our Online Worship.   The theme for today is "Unless the Lord Builds the House."  The scripture is Psalm 127.  This psalm is about work, God's work, which makes it the perfect psalm for this Labor Day Weekend.  God is always working in his world and in our lives.  Do you depend upon him to guide you in all you do?  The psalmist unless you depend upon God for your provision and protection, it is all in vain.  May the Lord be high and lifted up as we worship Him today.


Call to Worship


Opening Prayer

O Lord, you are a gracious God, compassionate, and abounding with mercy.  As I worship you today, please reveal yourself to me through the music, the prayers and the message.  May I hear your still small voice speaking to me.  May your Holy Spirit work in me to bring about your will in my life and this world, my Lord and my Redeemer.  Amen.

God Is Working



Benediction

Now, be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  Amen and Amen.




Our Core Practices



Fish

Christ has no body on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours.  Yours are the eyes through which Christ's compassion for the world is to look out; yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good; and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now.
