The Order of Worship for This Sunday



Call to Worship  (from Tim Graves's LiturgyBits site)

We gather as people on a journey. We believe and we have doubts, we do good and we sin. We are imperfect humans, and still beloved by God. Love and grace. Hope and faith. These are the essence of the one we call God.

We seek forgiveness and grace from the One and from those we've harmed. Assured of that grace, we are ready to grow again. We yearn for a new way, a new perspective, and a clear path. Though we are full of trust and full of doubt, we are here. 

Speak to us, God! Continue creating us! Inspire our hearts. Enlighten our minds. Guide our actions. Amen.

Scripture Reading




1 John 1:1 - 2:2 (New Revised Standard Version)
 
We declare to you what was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the word of life - this life was revealed, and we have seen it and testify to it, and declare to you the eternal life that was with the Father and was revealed to us -- we declare to you what we have seen and heard so that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. We are writing these things so that our joy may be complete.

This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light and in him there is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him while we are walking in darkness, we lie and do not do what is true; but if we walk in the light as he himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he who is faithful and just will forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
 
My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; and he is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.

DISCIPLES WOMEN'S MINISTRY MEETING
Your Invitation to Fellowship, Bible Study & Service
 
Ladies mark your calendar for Monday, April 12, 9:30 AM, for the fourth DWM meeting of the year. We will come together via zoom (link below) for fellowship and study.

The Bible study this month is another in the series of the Just Women Embracing Life that examines biblical narratives, correlating them with 21st Century challenges. The theme words....hope, healing, and wholeness have been chosen to help us examine our personal journey, as we seek to embrace our neighbors with Christ-like love.

The April study is titled:
O God, Do Not Be Far From Me:
The Promise of God's Presence 
Mildred Adair will facilitate the study this month.

The scripture text is from the Old Testament book of Psalms: # 71. In summary, although it is considered a psalm of lament, Psalm 71 expresses the full spectrum of our relationship with God, including: complaint, confession, petition, and praise. It reminds us that God is faithful through it all.

Webster's dictionary defines a psalm as a hymn, poem, canticle, prayer, or song of praise. Please read Psalm 71 before the meeting, making note of the version of the bible that you read it from. We hear the message in a multitude of descriptors as we read from a variety of versions. A word might catch your attention, or a certain phrase may resonate with your spirit, as you read and meditate on this psalm from a version that you are familiar with.

Explorers Sunday School Class New Study

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).
