Morning Worship, 7/26/09

*Our recording equipment malfunctioned, so the audio file begins during the Prayer for Illumination, just prior to the sermon. Sorry!

David did everything right--held the heart of a king, defeated Goliath, united his people, and protected the Ark of the Covenant. He did everything right...up to this point. This is the story of David's downfall.

Summer Worship Schedule

July & August: Worship at 9:30am, Sunday School at 11am

Last August, the Session asked the congregation to try a new worship schedule. In order to capitalize on cool mornings in the sanctuary, we held worship at 9:30am and Sunday School at 11am in Fellowship Hall. (Normally, Sunday School precedes worship.) Because that change worked so well, especially for our young families, they’ve decided to adopt that same worship schedule this year during July and August. Because these two months are our hottest, we’ll worship in the sanctuary at 9:30am and hold Sunday School in the basement at 11am. We’ll return to our normal schedule on September 6.

What do you do when you can't catch a break, so you take a break, and people break it up? How do you deal with...interruptions? Jesus demonstrates his advice.

What do you do when you're so happy you can't stand it? David danced--out of joy and in response to God's grace. Do you allow yourself to dance? Do you take time to respond to God's grace by allowing joy to flow from your soul?

Morning Worship, 7/5/09

Paul has a problem in 2 Corinthians 12.2-10. Sheep-stealing mud-slingers are talkin' up a big mess about God. Paul knows their theology is hurtful and untrue, but God instructs Paul not to fight back. God says, "My grace is sufficient."

What does it mean that God's grace is "sufficient" for us?
