Call to Worship From Hebrews 11 What is faith? Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Can we approach God with faith? We approach God with the faith that he exists and rewards those who seek him. Does faith give us what we want? Not at once, for all those who have lived by faith have not yet received what was promised. What did they receive – what can we receive? God has provided something better so that they would not, apart from us, be made perfect. We praise God for faith, perseverance, and the promises that will be fulfilled!

Rend your heart and not your garments. Return to the LORD your God, for he is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love. (Joel 2:13, NIV)
When Words Fail (11am)
February 14, 2021 • Rev. Brian Sixbey
God of grace and glory, we confess we aren’t used to either grace or glory. Tempers flare, patience withers, and our ability to be graceful all seem to have vanished. Glimpses of your glory catch us by surprise, because we only see what our eyes are used to seeing. We have become calloused by so many complaints, disgruntled by speaking so much disgust, and infuriated by all the irritants in our lives. Today, Lord, we ask: Silence our flapping tongues. Allow us to become awestruck in your presence, our words failing because of your glory abounding. Open our hearts, minds, and spirits to worship in your love, for we beg this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Don’t Outrun Jesus! (11am)
February 7, 2021 • Rev. Brian Sixbey
We get tired, and sometimes, we get sick and tired. When the Lord taught us how to live through Moses, the prophets, and by the example of Jesus, we were taught to take rest and rely on the Holy Spirit for strength. The human body, mind, and spirit need rest by design. Sometimes, taking a nap is spiritual. Sometimes, asking for help is spiritual. When and if we find ourselves getting tired, help us, Lord, to rely on your Spirit instead of our own stamina. May we wait on you Lord, and renew our strength, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
