Wednesday Night Studies Continue Tonight

Unstuck: Moving from Mundane to Meaningful
6:00 – 7:00 p.m. / Room M234

Are you stuck in a rut? It’s easy for Christians to find themselves caught up in the life of cluttered schedules, rhythms, and routines dictated by our culture. And they feel stuck in a life yearning for deeper meaning. Due to the length of the videos, participants are invited to go through the supper line as soon as it opens and eat/study starting at 6:00.

No More Perfect Moms
6:15 – 7:00 p.m. / Room M232

No More Perfect Moms – Learning to Love your Real Life by Jill Savage is a RightNow video series. All moms struggle. We fall short of our own standard of excellence, and then we feel insecure about so many things… Jill speaks to the root of the insecurities mothers feel and points to a better way.

Word Study
6:30 – 7:00 p.m. / Room M235

This group will study passages of the Bible that are part of future Sunday morning Worship services.

Worship and Prayer
6:30 – 7:00 p.m. / Illges Chapel

This mid-week worship provides the boost that many need between Sundays. Based on contemplative worship and prayer, these services devote themselves to singing, reflective prayer, and Lectio Divina (Divine Reading). The goal of each service is to create a space to connect to God and all the Holy Spirit to meet us right where we are. Communion will be offered.

Reservations for dinner are not needed, but they are certainly appreciated. Dinner is served at 6:00PM in the Fellowship Hall (M220).

First Steps – October 7, 2019

Sometimes I fall into the trap of limiting Jesus. I see and welcome him as personal savior, but that is it. If not careful, that is as far as it goes, for He is the savior of people from their sins. Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m very grateful for forgiveness in my life, but Jesus Christ is much more than personal savior. He is the Lord God over the cosmos.

The other day while singing All Creature of Our God and King, I was reminded of this fact. Do you know the words?

Verse 1: All creatures of our God and King, lift up your voice and with us sing, O praise ye! Alleluia! Thou burning sun with golden beam, thou silver moon with softer gleam, O praise ye! O praise ye! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Verse 2: Thou rushing wind that art so strong, ye clouds that sail in heav’n along, O praise ye! Alleluia! Thou rising morn, in praise rejoice, ye lights of ev’ning find a voice! O praise ye! O praise ye! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Verse 3: All ye who are of tender heart, forgiving others, take your part,
O sing ye! Alleluia! Ye who long pain and sorrow bear, praise God and on Him cast your care! O praise ye! O praise ye! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Verse 4: Let all things their Creator bless and worship Him in humbleness, O praise ye! Alleluia! Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son, and praise the Spirit, Three in One: O praise ye! O praise ye! Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Today, reclaim the cosmic Lord that you follow. He is Lord over all! Rest in the God who holds all things in the palm of His hands.
