We were delighted and grateful to have a Musical Offering by Wesley Walker, baritone, accompanied by Andrew Brooks Norman, pianist. Their offering was Keith Getty’s “In Christ Alone,” with text by Stuart Townend.
This Sunday’s Prelude, recorded during the March 3, 2019 worship service, was “Be Thou My Vision,” a Traditional Irish Melody arranged by Rebecca Bonam. It was performed by Linda Lancaster, flutist, and Angie Jenkins, pianist. The Anthem, from June 16, 2019, was “How Great Thou Art,” arranged by Eric Nelson. It was sung by the Chancel Choir, directed by Michael Lancaster and accompanied by Angie on pipe organ.
Paul and Linda Schowalter offered the Welcome and Call to Worship, the Prayer of Confession, and Passing of the Peace. We are very thankful for your participation in the worship service in this very meaningful way, Paul and Linda.
Pastor Curtis’ sermon was titled “People With Influence” and based on the opening of Paul’s letter in 1 Thessalonians 1:2-8, which upholds the people of the church in Thessalonica for their stature as a model to all believers, exhibiting through their lives the power and conviction of the Holy Spirit.
Angie Jenkins closed the service with the Benediction hymn, “God Be With You Til We Meet Again,” and the beautiful Postlude, “Voluntary in B flat‚” by R.G. Thompson.
