The Welcome and the Lord’s Prayer Mrs. Beth Andrews Our Present
*The First Hymn # 476 Be Strong in the Lord
The Scripture Lesson Hebrews 11: 4-7 Dr. Cecil Chambers
By faith Abel offered God a better sacrifice than Cain did. By faith he was commended as a righteous man, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith he still speaks, even though he is dead.
By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death; he could not be found, because God had taken him away, for before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God. And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family, by his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.
This is the word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.

Be watchful, stand firm in your faith,
Be courageous and strong.
Let all that you do be done in love.
We go confident in the promises of our God who has loved
us in faithfulness.
And now may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ
And the love of God
And the fellowship of the Holy Spirit
Be with you all.
