Welcome

Welcome to our Online Worship.   The theme for today is "God On Our Side."  The scripture is Psalm 124.  This is a psalm of David.  Obviously, he has been facing some troubles and he has had to depend upon God for his safety and salvation.  What would have happened if God had not been "on his side?"  He would have faced certain destruction.  We can be thankful that we have a God who is "on our side."  He wants the best for us.  He is for us, not against us.  May God be blessed as we worship him today.

Call to Worship


Opening Prayer

O Lord, we do lift up your name and ask that you inhabit our praises.   May your kingdom be established and reign in our hearts and lives today as we worship you.   Blessed be your name, now and forevermore.  Amen.

Psalm 124

Benediction

May Christ dwell in your hearts through faith-that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.  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.
