A NOTE FROM PASTOR MARK:
We recognize that family worship has its unique challenges depending on your family’s size and stage of life. Therefore, we have prepared a complete worship service (below) for our entire church family because we are convinced that Sunday is so much more than a sermon. And this is one way for us to be worshiping the same way even though we are apart.
We suggest that you test the worship and sermon links before you gather your family. After you have done this, we encourage the leader of the house to read the prayers and appoint other readers as necessary to encourage greatest participation.
After the sermon is over, we encourage you to discuss the sermon and ways to live out its application.
Salvation belongs to the lord

ONLINE WORSHIP SERVICE (9.27.2020)
CALL TO WORSHIP:
Let’s turn our hearts toward the Lord, placing our hope in him…..
Psalms 27:4 One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple. 5 For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will lift me high upon a rock.
“Praise the Lord The Almighty”
15 But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man’s trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many. 16 And the free gift is not like the result of that one man’s sin. For the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought justification. 17 For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.
18 Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. 19 For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous. 20 Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, 21 so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
“Grace Greater Than All Our Sin”
“Great Are You Lord”
Today O Lord we declare that you are great and great is your salvation!
As the Psalmist said “…may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who love your salvation say continually, “Great is the LORD!””
You have saved us from sin’s penalty once and for all.
You are saving us from sin’s power in our lives, little by little.
And You will save us forever from sin’s presence in the future!
What a great savior we have in you. You are a savior who comes to us and bestows on us the riches of his grace, grace that is greater than our sin. As Romans 5 said “but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more,” (Romans 5:20).
You delight to pour out your grace upon us. May you, “in the coming ages show off the immeasurable riches of your grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:7–8).
And now, let us receive the grace that you have for us in your word. Fill our hearts and minds with truth and speak to us that we may be filled to overflowing, ready to engage in loving each other and the fallen world around us.
