Dear Friends in Christ,
This Sunday concludes our summer series on the Ten Commandments called “Love Carved in Stone“. My prayer has been that the foundation of faith for JIPC and each of us has been strengthened by exploring what these mean for God’s people today.
It is especially fitting to be the Sunday that six of our young people will be confirmed in their faith to become members of the church and to be commissioned as disciples of Jesus Christ! What a celebration for the church as they each were baptized and raised in the faith as children! Join us to bless these six Faith Seekers: Madison Orris, Sarah Quinn, Katie Brandon, Brooke Farfone, Max White and Caroline Henley!
The attached Worship Guide is offered to you to do by yourself, with family and/or join in the ZOOM Live Service this Sunday at 10 am. There is also a Children’s Prayer Guide. Each worship service is planned intentionally for all ages in mind so that there may be a part of the service for everyone.
The Planning Team for worship includes: (Technology) Amanda Henley, Max White, and Wally Meggs; (Worship) Elizabeth Nix, Sarah Shayban & myself. Also leading in worship today are the Baslow family—Molly, Adam, CeCe Markham, and Evie
Here are some ways to prepare for worship:
- Read the answer Jesus gives when asked what is the greatest commandment in Matthew 22:34-37. Then read Exodus 20:1-17. In looking at the Ten Commandments, which ones would be summarized in the first part of Jesus’ answer, and which ones in the second part? In regards to the last commandment, what do you “covet” in your life?
- Set up a special place to worship with the elements. You may want some flowers or a candle, a Bible; the Prayer Guide and Children’s Prayer Guide (if children are joining with you).
- Pray for God’s Holy Spirit to be with us all in worship to the glory of God.
I hold you all in my prayers that we are one in Christ wherever we are this Sunday!
