Order of Worship

June 14, 2020

Call to Worship:

"But we your people, the sheep of your pasture, will give thanks to you forever; from generation to generation we will recount your praise." (Psalm 79:13 ESV)

Song:

"Great is Thy Faithfulness" (click on the title for song video)

Gospel Assurance:

"Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures." (James 1:16–18 ESV)

Song:

"Revelation Song" (click on the title for song video)

What We Believe:

"We believe that God's justifying grace must not be separated from His sanctifying power and purpose. God commands us to love Him supremely and others sacrificially, and to live out our faith with care for one another, compassion toward the poor and justice for the oppressed. With God’s Word, the Spirit’s power, and fervent prayer in Christ’s name, we are to combat the spiritual forces of evil. In obedience to Christ’s commission, we are to make disciples among all people, always bearing witness to the gospel in word and deed." (EFCA Statement of Faith)

Missionary Update from the Winters Family:

Winters Family

"Dear Church family, Thanks so much for praying for us.  Please continue to pray for us.  We are meeting in person for church now.  We have not added our children’s church or Sunday school in with the exception of Mati’s jr. high - high school Bible study. We are continuing with our Facebook live and zoom presence and plan on keeping it up.  We have discovered that many local non church going are appreciating it. We started a zoom Bible study on the Life of Christ and our people are loving it!  Praise the Lord!"

Sermon:

"God of Justice" Exodus 22:16-23:19 (link will be available on Sunday evening after 4 pm)

Benediction:

"Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen." (Ephesians 3:20-21 ESV)

Questions:

  1. How does God’s description of justice in this text compare and contrast with the world’s, or your own?
  2. Which of the priorities in these laws are easiest for you to lose sight of? Why? How can you grow in this?
  3. What do these laws teach us about God?
  4. Why is it so important to remember who we were before Christ, who we are as Christians, and who God is in order to live justly in this world?
