SERVICE SUMMARY: Who gets the final word on defining a person? We often go through life looking for someone or some group to tell us who we are. Often, we attempt to define ourselves and others by our success, our hobbies, our politics, or our market value. We look for a tribe to give us meaning and significance. But God says that he is our maker. Since we belong to him, he gets the final word on everything about us. Join us this Sunday as we continue our sermon series on the unity of the Christian Church. Click HERE to RSVP to service.

 

 

SCRIPTURE:

Philippians 1:27–2:2

7 Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel, 28 and not frightened in anything by your opponents. This is a clear sign to them of their destruction, but of your salvation, and that from God. 29 For it has been granted to you that for the sake of Christ you should not only believe in him but also suffer for his sake, 30 engaged in the same conflict that you saw I had and now hear that I still have.

2 So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, 2 complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.

 

CONFESSION OF SIN

Lord, we are like sheep, and we get lost. 
We forget the needs of our neighbors 
and do not love you above all else.
We need a Savior, so we long for Jesus. 

Lord, hear us as we silently confess our need for mercy.

silent confession

Come, Lord Jesus. Rescue and heal us. Amen.

Let us be known by our love
In every word, in every deed honor the Son
Let our light shine in every eye
Let us be known by our love

In every home, in every heart sing to the Lord

In every town, in every tribe Jesus is King
Let us go forth, heal and restore
Let us be known by our peace

For the glory of the Son
For the glory of the Spirit
Let us be known by our peace
