February 24, 2021 ~ Midweek Lent 2

Tonight’s Worship Focus Hands of Betrayal (Judas). Judas would rather have thirty pieces of silver than stay loyal to his Savior. So, he handed Jesus over to death in exchange for that money. Judas committed a wicked act by betraying Jesus. Tonight’s Psalm reminds us that wickedness is a challenge in the world.

OPENING HYMN ~ 95 How Good, Lord, to Be Here PRAYER OF THE DAY  Lord God, before the suffering and death of your one and only Son, you revealed his glory on the holy mountain. Grant that we who bear his cross on earth may behold by faith the light of his heavenly glory and so be changed into his likeness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen. FIRST LESSON ~ 2 Kings 2:1-12a PSALM OF THE...

February 7, 2021 - 5th Sunday after the Epiphany

Today’s Worship Focus Jesus’ glory is revealed in weakness. Today’s Scripture (First Lesson, Second Lesson, Gospel, Psalm) reveals Jesus’ glory in weakness. Job was so physically weak, yet he prayed with a trusting heart to God, revealing God’s glory by the fact that he prayed (First Lesson). The Apostle Paul didn’t have one sermon for his many types of listeners, but he preached the gospel to many types with their own weaknesses, revealing Jesus’...
