Pastor David reads John 1:1-18 and offers a prayer from Joseph Hart:

How good is the God we adore,
Our faithful, unchangeable Friend!
His love is as great as his power,
And knows neither measure nor end!
‘Tis Jesus, the First and the Last,
Whose Spirit shall guide us safe home:
We’ll praise him for all that is past,
We’ll trust him for all that’s to come.

Worship Service on Sunday, August 2, 2020

This week’s service focuses on the theme of “struggle.” Pastor David’s sermon comes from Genesis 32:22-32, where Jacob wrestles with God.

Unfortunately, our service was not able to be streamed live due to a bandwidth problem with our internet provider. (Just one more struggle, right?)

Pastor David reads Matthew 27:24-31 and offers a prayer from Treasury of Devotion:

O innocent Jesus, who with wonderful submission was for our sakes condemned to die: Grant that we may bear in mind that our sins were the false witnesses; our blasphemies, backbitings, and evil speakings were the cause of your accepting with gladness the sentence of the impious judge. O may this thought touch our hearts and make us hate those sins which cause your death.

Lord Jesus Christ, pierce my soulw ith your love so that I may always long for you alone, who are the bread of angels and the fulfillment of the soul’s deepest desires.

May my soul thirst for you, who are the source of life, wisdom, knowledge, light, and all the riches of God our Father. May I always seek you and find you, think about you, speak to you, and do everything for the honor and glory of your holy name. Be always my hope, my peace, my refuge, and my help in whom my heart is rooted so that I may never be separated from you.
