The Order of Worship for This Sunday



Call to Worship  (from 1 Chronicles 16 & Psalm 34)

Sing to the Lord, all the earth. Tell of God's salvation from day to day. Declare God's glory among the nations, proclaim the Creators marvelous works among all the peoples. For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised. 

I will bless the Lord at all times; God's praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul makes its boast in the Lord; let the humble hear and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt God's name together!

Scripture Reading




1 John 3:1-7 (New Revised Standard Version)
 
See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and that is what we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 

Beloved, we are God's children now; what we will be has not yet been revealed. What we do know is this: when he is revealed, we will be like him, for we will see him as he is. And all who have this hope in him purify themselves, just as he is pure.

Everyone who commits sin is guilty of lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. You know that he was revealed to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. No one who abides in him sins; no one who sins has either seen him or known him. 

Little children, let no one deceive you. Everyone who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous.

Explorers Sunday School Class New Study
BEGINS THIS WEEK

Following studying the four gospels, the Explorers are currently winding up their informal study of the Acts of the Apostles and have elected to next study the book of Romans beginning April 18.
The group will continue to use the John MacArthur Bible Studies series, Romans: Grace, Truth, and Redemption.

Following the four gospels and the Acts (of the Apostles), this epistle is named for its first intended audience, the church in Rome. The author, Paul, was a Roman citizen who was converted on his way to Damascus in 33-34 AD   where he (had) planned to arrest Christians in the city. Rather, Paul immediately began to proclaim the gospel, traveling for three years preaching the good news of Jesus Christ.

He was a learned man who spoke several languages. Born, Saul (Hebrew name), Paul (Greek name) was born close to the time of the birth of Jesus, in Tarsus in Asia Minor (today, Turkey) of Greek parentage. As his father, Paul was a member of the Pharisees, a strict Jewish sect. He studied in Jerusalem under the rabbi, Gamaliel. More than any other man of his day, Paul was relentless in his mission to spread the gospel through much of the Roman Empire during his three missionary journeys around the Mediterranean Sea.
The Explorers class invites all men and women to join them in this journey to explore with Paul and one another. We usually number from eight to twelve each Sunday at 9:45 AM for forty-five minutes of fellowship and study. Mildred Adair facilitates the class. Should you like a study guide, contact Linda Glover to have the book mailed to your home ($10).
