November 29, 2020 ~ 1st Sunday in Advent

~ Worship in Focus ~ The Season of Advent: In Advent the Word of God bids us prepare for the coming of Christ. The readings for Advent have this urgency to them: Since he is surely coming again in judgment, we desperately need for him to come to us first in grace. For without that coming in grace we will perish at his coming in judgment. The Prayer of the Day on each Sunday in Advent is especially beautiful. These ancient prayers were said by many of the faithful even during the week when...

TODAY'S WORSHIP FOCUS: Lord, keep us watchful for our triumph!

Jesus wants us to be the waiting Church – the Church that watches for her Savior and cries, "Come quickly, Lord Jesus!" As we journey through these latter days, our vigilance and our hearts grow drowsy because the bridegroom seems to be taking so long. So, while we...

October 11, 2020 ~ Mission Festival

Worship in Focus   TODAY'S WORSHIP FOCUS: The Message of the Cross... is foolishness to some, but the power of God to us being saved. Jesus once "saw the crowds" and "had compassion on them" (Matthew 9:36). A missionary has similar compassion, which leads to the sharing of the message of the cross of Christ. Some will sneer because they consider that message foolishness. Others, who believe that message by God's power, will want to hear more...
