CALL TO WORSHIP
Praise the matchless One, servants of God. There is none like our Sovereign God in heaven or on earth.

PRAYER OF CONFESSION
RULER OF ALL, ALL THINGS, ALL PERSONS, WE ADMIT THAT WE ARE MORE SHREWD IN GETTING AHEAD IN EARTHLY THINGS THAN WE ARE IN HEAVENLY THINGS. WE MAY USE EVERY ADVANTAGE WE CAN GET TO AVOID TAXES, BUT NOT EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO AVOID TEMPTATION. WE MAY PAD OUR ACCOUNTS AND EXAGGERATE OUR VIRTUES IN GIVING ACCOUNT OF OURSELVES. FORGIVE DISHONEST ACCOUNTING AND SLIPSHOD MORALITY FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR SON, OUR SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST. AMEN

For April 28, 2019:
  • Finding Resurrection Among Smoldering Ruins by Chris Keating — The aftermath of the fiery destruction of Notre Dame of Paris, as well as the recent burnings of African American churches in the south, provides a contemporary connection to our search for resurrection hope in moments of fearful desperation.

Witness to These Things
by Peter Andrew Smith
Acts 5:27-32

“You need to stop,” Jodi said. “You’re embarrassing yourself.”

Cindy looked up at the three girls surrounding her table in the High School cafeteria. “What are you talking about?”

Thomas answered Him, 'my Lord and my God!'(v. 28)

Good morning children,

Did you know it is still Easter? Yes it is. So Happy Easter! (to the congregation)

Happy Easter! (get a response) It is still the Easter season for the fifty days following Easter Sunday. Yaaay!

Emphasis Preaching Journal

This Sunday’s lessons proclaim that God and his resurrection have their way with us.

This lesson is the story of what the Holy Spirit can do to change lives, the courage the Spirit gave Peter to witness to authorities, the courage given to the Church today to stand up to the powers that be. Regarding the Holy Spirit modern Latin Evangelical theologian Zaida Perez has written:

I shall never forget that moment on February 11, 1990 when Nelson Mandela was freed after nearly 30 years in captivity in South Africa. It was one of those magic moments shared, thanks to television, with the whole world.

There have been a number of occasions in my life where I have had the opportunity to make a complete fool of myself, and sad to say, I have generally taken full advantage of each one of those opportunities as they came along. I suppose I could prove the point by regaling you with dozens of pertinent stories, but for the sake of preserving your time and my dignity, I will tell you just one.
