Welcome to Worship



Greeting

The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.  

And also with you.

Opening Prayer

Sharing of the Peace

Responsive Reading (Psalm 23)

 

O Lord, you have examined my heart

You know everything about me.

 

You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

 

You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

 

You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

 

You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

 

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

It’s too great for me to understand!

 

I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

 

Search me, O God, and know my heart;

Test me and know my anxious thoughts.

 

Point out anything in me that offends you,

and lead me along the path of everlasting life.

Sermon

45 Immediately after this, Jesus insisted that his disciples get back into the boat and head across the lake to Bethsaida, while he sent the people home. 46 After telling everyone good-bye, he went up into the hills by himself to pray.

47 Late that night, the disciples were in their boat in the middle of the lake, and Jesus was alone on land. 48 He saw that they were in serious trouble, rowing hard and struggling against the wind and waves. About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water. He intended to go past them, 49 but when they saw him walking on the water, they cried out in terror, thinking he was a ghost. 50 They were all terrified when they saw him. But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage! I am here!” 51 Then he climbed into the boat, and the wind stopped. They were totally amazed, 52 for they still didn’t understand the significance of the miracle of the loaves. Their hearts were too hard to take it in.

Mark 6:45-52 - New Living Translation
