Order of Worship and Announcements for Sunday, February 26th
Evening Prelude Begins at 5:40 p.m.
Beautiful music enlivens our spirits and adds to our Sabbath joy. Each Sunday evening prior to the worship service, musicians begin to play or sing at 5:40 pm. Musicians for this evening are Nathan Lawty, piano, and Ron Bechtel, organ.
Evening Service 6:00 pm
We will take up the prophecy of the seventy weeks at the end of Daniel 9. Come with your own interpretation already worked out! The Lord’s Supper will be served. The Lord’s Supper is observed every Lord’s Day at Faith Presbyterian Church alternating between the morning and the evening services. The officers have wanted to retain evening communion not only because all the Lord’s Suppers explicitly mentioned in the New Testament were in the evening, but as well to reinforce the importance of Sunday evening worship as a regular part of the observance of the Lord’s Day.
A meeting of the congregation of Faith Presbyterian Church is scheduled for March 5, 2017 immediately following the evening service. The purpose of the meeting will be to vote on the session’s proposal for the process to be followed in the search for the congregation’s next senior pastor. Copies of the proposal are available in the church office and for download.
2017 Bible Reading Plan
As you may remember, several months ago we made a first effort to cultivate our singing as a congregation in worship. We have outlined a curriculum that in fifteen minute segments will carry us through several months of non-Supper evening services, covering singing in harmony, in unison; the volume of the congregation’s voice, the tempo at which a hymn is sung, and several other considerations bearing on how well a congregation sings a particular hymn. We have begun to include in the bulletin specific instructions for the congregation’s singing of certain hymns. This should be both fun and useful!
In addition to the nursery rooms, Room #117 – the Women in the Church room, is open and available for your convenience during all Worship Services. The service can be seen and heard in the WIC room.
If you would like a device to help with hearing the worship service, please see a Deacon.
