The Worship of God
November 17, 2019
The prelude music is a time for beginning worship. Observing a time of silence and prayer will free the congregation to focus on the worship of God.
The Prelude Mrs. Beth Braun
The Chiming of the Hour
The Call to Worship This is the Day
The Welcome and the Lord’s Prayer Mrs. Candice Lewis
*The Opening Hymn# 231 Come, Christians, Join to Sing
The Scripture Lesson Luke 21:27-38
“At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
He told them this parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the trees. When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near. Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.
I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. Be careful or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap, for it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth. Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
Each day Jesus was teaching at the temple, and each evening he went out to spend the night on the hill called the Mount of Olives, and all the people came early in the morning to hear him at the temple.
This is the gospel of Christ.
Thanks be to God.
