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 in the rooms in hall building. After the worship, all the children 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.
English Standard Version (ESV)
Luke 12: 49-59
49 “I came to cast fire on the earth, and would that it were already kindled! 50 I have a baptism to be baptized with, and how great is my distress until it is accomplished! 51 Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. 52 For from now on in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three. 53 They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.” 54 He also said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you say at once, ‘A shower is coming.’ And so it happens. 55 And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, ‘There will be scorching heat,’ and it happens. 56 You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but why do you not know how to interpret the present time? 57 “And why do you not judge for yourselves what is right? 58 As you go with your accuser before the magistrate, make an effort to settle with him on the way, lest he drag you to the judge, and the judge hand you over to the officer, and the officer put you in prison. 59 I tell you, you will never get out until you have paid the very last penny.”
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)
