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)
Mark 6: 45-53
45 Immediately he made his disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd. 46 And after he had taken leave of them, he went up on the mountain to pray. 47 And when evening came, the boat was out on the sea, and he was alone on the land. 48 And he saw that they were making headway painfully, for the wind was against them. And about the fourth watch of the night[g] he came to them, walking on the sea. He meant to pass by them, 49 but when they saw him walking on the sea they thought it was a ghost, and cried out, 50 for they all saw him and were terrified. But immediately he spoke to them and said, “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid.” 51 And he got into the boat with them, and the wind ceased. And they were utterly astounded, 52 for they did not understand about the loaves, but their hearts were hardened. 53 When they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret and moored to the shore.
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)
