Our Worship Service

Sunday Morning Worship Service
10:00 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.

We gather together in the presence of God to pray with and for one another; read, hear and meditate upon scripture; share joys and concerns; hear the Word preached; and offer praise to God through music.  When requested the sacrament of Baptism is offered.  On the first Sunday of each month the children join their family in the sanctuary to share in the sacrament of Holy Communion.  On the second and fourth Sunday of each month a Children's Message is given.  Before worship you will hear the joyful noise of people greeting one another.  During worship you may hear clapping or even laughter.  Worship continues downstairs in Fellowship Hall as we gather for refreshment and fellowship.  Our worship together as the Body of Christ is a reminder that truly God is good - All the time!

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. and blessings to your day ahead. Good Sunday Morning; Let’s start with a big thank you to those who helped with the dinner last night to kick off the Orrington's "OLD HOME DAYS" week.  I am told everything went well.

    Recently the NFL decided to elect Terrell Owens into the football Hall of Fame. With this the Hall has a big induction ceremony where the who's who of football come together and congratulate the inductees. For the first time, Terrell Owens has snub the NFL and in many people’s opinion rudely declined the invitation to the induction ceremonies. How does the NFL react? By saying, fine we will not say anything about you at the ceremony. Basically, if you are rude to us then we will be rude back.


       This is often the way of the world around us. Like the saying," I don't get mad I get even." In the Book of Joshua, Joshua calls upon the people to make a decision. Basically, to serve the world or serve God. One is freeing one is not.


    “Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD. And if it seems evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:14–15.


     In this crazy world every day we are asked to choose a path. To do what is right, Godly, or to follow the leader of this world. Doing what is right is not always the easy way but it is the freeing way. Not everyone will appreciate it and some may even condemn you but the important thing is not the approval of men but the smile of God. And though it is not pleasant to be critiqued and condemned for doing right, the actions of others should never sway us from that course. The decision to do what is right is one we can make for ourselves regardless of what anyone or everyone else does.


       Who do you serve both outwardly and inwardly? I hope you take the time to sit and meditate on this choice? I hope to see you this morning. Pastor Carl


      On a church sign yesterday I saw, "Skipping is made for ropes and stones, not church!"

Almighty and loving lord, your way is freeing and right. May I this day and every day choose to do what is right in your eyes. May my understanding of Your Holy Word be one that strengthens my desire to serve you. Father forgive me of my actions that do harm to others as I find forgiveness in my heart to those that have hurt me. Help me oh Lord to better know you and follow you in all ways. Father I pray for the church I serve. I pray for revival and faithfulness of your Word. I pray that the beacon lit many years ago continues to be a beacon of hope for the centuries to come. Father help me as I turn to you for the freedom you give. Give me strength through the name of your Son Jesus, the one whom I pray through. Amen
