During a recent Sunday morning, Michele DeMocker sent her husband Richard to Giant to get some Lunchables for the kids. Richard related to me that Beans, the clerk at Giant, had identified him as being from Messiah and that he wasn’t quite sure how she knew that. I was in the store later that day and asked Beans how she knew Richard was from Messiah. She said he was a nice-looking man who was obviously dressed for church and had a stack of Lunchables for kids and so she knew he must be from Messiah. So that is the kind of reputation Messiah has in the community! Nice looking people obviously getting something that is not for them! I think that is a pretty good reputation!
People from Messiah get that kind of reputation because we are shaped by our worship together. As we look forward to worship this coming Sunday, traditional worship will focus on John 1:43-50 and the sermon at 8:15 and 9:30 will be entitled
“See Something, Say Something.”
We will celebrate our Stephen Ministry at Messiah as we consecrate our new Stephen Ministers at the 11:00 am traditional service. We will celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion at each of our worship services this Sunday. At the 8:15 traditional service, the Joyful Noise Choir will present
“Come to the Banquet”
for our anthem. At the 9:30 and 11:00 am services, the Chancel Choir will present “
A Communion Invitation
” for our anthem. The
Jubilation Ringers will also present “
Song of Gladness”
at the 9:30 and 11:00 am traditional services. Pia Diggs will be leading our Risk worship service in the Lord Youth Center at 11:00 am. She will be focusing on Acts 5:27-32 and her sermon is entitled “
When God is Louder.
” We look forward to sharing in worship with you this Sunday;
