Lenten Prayer of Confession [3rd week of Lent]

Lent is a time of humble recognition that we have strayed from God in our hearts and that we need to return to the one who loves us beyond measure. Each week throughout Lent I will print a prayer of confession to help us on our journey with God.

Healing God of majesty and glory,

We are thirsty for your grace.

You made a way for us in the wilderness,

And still, in our foolishness, we go astray.

We hide our eyes from your presence.

We do not listen to your word.

We are lifeless when we ought to dance

And speechless when we ought to sing.

Forgive us, O Lord.

Speak peace to our fearful hearts, 

strengthen our weak hands,

and make firm our feeble knees

as we seek to follow in your holy way. Amen.

 

Our Daily Bread

The March. April, May issue of “Our Daily Bread” is now available for free in the foyer. This handy guide to the Bible allows the reader to pause each day and think upon the things of God. It is a simple devotional that will bring you blessings. 

 

Discipleship Classes are offered every Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. 

There is a multi-generational adult class that meets in the church library. This class is facilitated by the pastor and follows the same text that he will be preaching on in the worship service that morning. This is a great opportunity to grow in one’s faith, ask questions, and join in community.

 

April Movie Night [4.12.19]

April’s movie has a religious theme. It stars Jim Caviezel as the Apostle Paul, perhaps making him the only actor to appear in film portraying two of the New Testament’s most influential people: Paul and Jesus. The movie tracks Paul from be a religious persecutor of the church to becoming its most influential apostle. Movie starts at 6;30 p.m.
