Order of Worship
Sunday, May 10, 2020
We extend a warm welcome to all our visitors this morning! Visitors, please complete the Welcome card in the pew rack and put it in the offering plate, so we may know how best to minister to/with you. Let’s prepare our hearts with silent Bible reading, meditation, and prayer before the service begins.

Updating Our Nursery: We are in the process of updating our church nursery and have created a registry list of items we need for our nursery on Amazon. A link for this registry was sent out on our church email chain. If you did not get the link and would like to help purchase items to help us as we minister to our little ones, please email Debbie Tuel at firstname.lastname@example.org
Women’s Bible Study: All women in the church are invited to participate in our Women’s Bible study on Contentment. In Contentment, Melissa Kruger considers what it really means to be content: to place our trust in our good and sovereign God. We will utilize Zoom video conferencing to conduct the study. An email will be sent in advance of each study with weblink and logon information. Our next study is on Saturday, May 16th at 9:00 am and will continue to meet the 1st & 3rd Saturdays of the month. There is a study guide Contentment, by Melissa Kruger which will be used in conjunction with the study. The study guide is not required; however, it is available for free download or purchase on line at Ligonier Ministries
Faith Church Retreat – The Retreat has been postponed until August 21-23rd. If things are opened up enough by that time we will be gathering at the Bongiorno Conference Center in Carlisle, PA. More information will be coming shortly.
For 2020, we are continuing to provide a basic Family Worship plan to help enable our families more regularly worship together during the week. In each weekly bulletin, we will provide a Daily Bible Reading plan from “M’Cheyne Daily Bible Reading Plan”, weekly questions from the Westminster Shorter Catechism, and a hymn for you to learn together.
Weekly Hymn: 103 Holy God We Praise Your Name
- Q37 What benefits do believers receive from Christ at death? /
Answer: The souls of believers are at their death made perfect in holiness, and do immediately pass into glory; and their bodies, being still united in Christ, do rest in their graves, till the resurrection.
- Q38 What benefits do believers receive from Christ at the resurrection? /
Answer: At the resurrection, believers, being raised up in glory, shall be openly acknowledged and acquitted in the day of judgment, and made perfectly blessed in the full enjoying of God to all eternity.
