Anticipating Worship (November 5)

First Sunday of End Time—Reformation Sunday

Worship Focus:  Reformation Realities—Old and New
                             Grace Alone.  Faith Alone.  Scripture Alone.

We will have three devotions based on the truths of the Bible restored through the Reformation.

- Grace Alone
Exodus 34:6,7
Ephesians 2:4,5

- Faith Alone
Genesis 15:6
Romans 4:1-5

- Scripture Alone
2 Samuel 7:25
Luke 24:27

Prayer of the Day:  Heavenly Father, our refuge and strength, pour out your Holy Spirit on your faithful people.  Keep them steadfast in your Word, protect and comfort them in all temptations, defend them against all their enemies, and bestow on the Church your saving peace; through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.  Amen.

This year marks the 500th anniversary of Luther's posting of the 95 Theses  (October 31, 1517).  Our special worship on Sunday will commemorate the beginning of the significant event that allows us to appreciate our God.

See you at 9:30 AM.
