Our meetings start with music and singing together.
The songs we choose worship God and lead us to focus on Him. Lyrics are projected on a screen so all can join the singing. During that time tithes and offerings are collected.
During the sermon, all children can participate in organized activities, during which
they are looked after by our teachers. Classes will take place outdoors or in the hall building. After the worship, all thechildren gather in the hall next to the reception desk and go to classes with the volunteer. After the sermon, the children are brought to the main / gymnasium. In the hall building, in the interests of the sports surface, please make sure that children playing on it take off their shoes or change them to sports shoes.
45 One of the lawyers answered him, “Teacher, in saying these things you insult us also.” 46 And he said, “Woe to you lawyers also! For you load people with burdens hard to bear, and you yourselves do not touch the burdens with one of your fingers. 47 Woe to you! For you build the tombs of the prophets whom your fathers killed. 48 So you are witnesses and you consent to the deeds of your fathers, for they killed them, and you build their tombs. 49 Therefore also the Wisdom of God said, ‘I will send them prophets and apostles, some of whom they will kill and persecute,’ 50 so that the blood of all the prophets, shed from the foundation of the world, may be charged against this generation, 51 from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah, who perished between the altar and the sanctuary. Yes, I tell you, it will be required of this generation. 52 Woe to you lawyers! For you have taken away the key of knowledge. You did not enter yourselves, and you hindered those who were entering.” 53 As he went away from there, the scribes and the Pharisees began to press him hard and to provoke him to speak about many things, 54 lying in wait for him, to catch him in something he might say. In the meantime, when so many thousands of the people had gathered together that they were trampling one another, he began to say to his disciples first, “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. 2 Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. 3 Therefore whatever you have said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed on the housetops.
The Communion Table in our church is open to all who have made the decision to trust Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. If you haven’t made that decision yet, you can spend this time praying and if you would like you can use one of the prayers provided below. If you are ready to make the decision to trust Jesus, you can use the Prayer of Belief and then join us in Communion if you will. Should you make that decision today, please let one of the pastors know so they can help you with the next steps to build and grow in your relationship with God
Lord Jesus, you claim to be the way, the truth, and the life. Grant that I might be undaunted by the cost of following you as I consider the reasons for doing so. If what you claim is true, please guide me, teach me, and open me to the reality of who you are. Give me an understanding of you that is coherent, convincing, and that leads to the life you promise. Amen
Lord Jesus Christ, I admit that I am weaker and more sinful than I ever dared admit, but through you I am more loved and accepted than I ever dared hope. I thank you for paying my debt on the cross, taking what I deserved in order to offer me complete forgiveness. Knowing that you have been raised from the dead, I turn from my sins and receive you as my Savior and Lord. Amen (1)
(1) If you prayed this prayer for the first time today, please let one of our pastors know.
(24)The Lord bless you and keep you; (25) the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; (26) the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. (Numbers 6:24-26, ESV)
Now to him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of his glory with great joy
To the only God, our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all time and now and forever. Amen. (Jude 1:24-25)
