Our message today is "A Walking Sermon." Our hymns are "Lord, I want to be a Christian" (https://hymnary.org/text/lord_i_want_to_be_a_christian_in_my_hear) and "Gracious Spirit, dwell with me" (https://hymnary.org/text/gracious_spirit_dwell_with_me), with the addition of a third verse: Silent Spirit, dwell with me: I myself would silent be, quiet as the growing blade, which through earth its way has made, silently, like morning light, putting mists and chills to flight.

Please join us in prayer!

Our hymn this week was Pastor Mary Beth's great-grandmother's favorite! Here are the lyrics: https://hymnary.org/text/flee_as_a_bird_to_your_mountain. I learned the first line as "Flee as a bird to yon mountain," which, for 1840s language, makes sense. Enjoy!

 

Join us in worship! Our theme today is "What Belongs to God?" Hymns are "I am thine, O Lord," lyrics here: https://www.hymnal.net/en/hymn/h/387 (Please switch the order of the second and third verses, and skip the fourth.), and "Take my life," lyrics here: https://hymnary.org/text/take_my_life_and_let_it_be.

Let us remember that "The earth is the Lord's, and all it contains, The world, and those who dwell in it." Psalm 24:1.

Join us in prayer! Our hymn is "Jesus, lover of my soul." Lyrics may be found here: https://hymnary.org/text/jesus_lover_of_my_soul_let_me_to_thy_bos.

Please be sure to contact Pastor Mary Beth or the deacons with prayer requests and concerns. Keep our church family in prayer, and please pray for those affected by Covid-19.

This is just a "teaser" for our worship service on October 18. That service will be held at Beatrice Mennonite Church. Pastor Tim's focus will be the hymn "Come, thou Fount," number 521 in our blue Hymnal. Lyrics may be found here: https://hymnary.org/text/come_thou_fount_of_every_blessing.

This is the fifth of a six part series based on great hymns of the faith. This week, our focus is on peace, the kind we can only receive from the Prince of Peace. Our first hymn is "O God, in restless living." Lyrics may be found at https://hymnary.org/text/o_god_in_restless_living. Our sermon is based on the hymn "Dear Lord and Father of mankind," which can be found here: https://hymnary.org/text/dear_lord_and_father_of_mankind. Our benediction is "Peace Pilgrim's Prayer." It is a canon based on a favorite verse, Psalm 46:10. An explanation and lyrics may be found at https://www.shawnkirchner.com/composition/satb-anthems-worship-music/peace-pilgrims-prayer-peace-be-still/.
May God bless you with peace!
