Lydia, the weaver of purple  - illustration

Sunday, May 26, 2019  Celebrating our Anniversary and Remembering
 

With Children  Mobby Larson offers time for children who are then invited to attend church school.  

In Word:  John 14:23-29; Acts 16:9-15
Jesus tells us an Advocate will be sent - to be with us and accompany us in his physical absence. 
There is a hitch in Paul's plans to spread the gospel to Europe.  Instead he finds his way to southern Asia and to the home of Lydia, the weaver of purple cloth.

"Who Watches Over You?"    Best-laid plans get side-tracked  - even for those as righteously faithful as Paul.  We find evidence that something (or some One?) was keeping Paul company, just as Jesus promised.
Can it be that God is really that close to us?   


In Music:
Prelude   “God of Our Fathers”  (National Hymn) - McDonald   
Senior Choir:  “God Is Our Refuge” – Pote; Don Sherman, trumpet
Offertory:     "Eternal Father, Strong to Save" - Martin
Postlude:     “Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory” - McDonald


Hymns: Today We Search Our Past; Lift Every Voice and Sing; and My Eyes Have Seen the Glory.  

Serving in Worship:  
  Matthew Sander, deacon; Paul Ames, Arthur Dobley, Matthew Sander, Patty Danley, ushers; Joe Serwinski, lay reader; Mobby Larson, time for children.
