Worship Service 19 April 2020

 

1) Preparation and Prayer

Read the following Psalm as a prayer in preparing your heart for meeting with God.

Psalm 121:1–8 (ESV)
121:1 I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come?
121:2 My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
121:3 He will not let your foot be moved; he who keeps you will not slumber.
121:4 Behold, he who keeps Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.
121:5 The LORD is your keeper; the LORD is your shade on your right hand.
121:6 The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.
121:7 The LORD will keep you from all evil; he will keep your life.
121:8 The LORD will keep your going out and your coming in from this time forth and forevermore.

2) Announcements

  • BIRTHDAY AND ANNIVERSARIES.

    • 22nd Erika du Preez

  • Church camp POSTPONED. We will reschedule once the COVID-19 pandemic is over
  • King’s Kids Week CANCELLED. It’s with great sadness that we have to cancel King’s Kids Week for this year. This is the time we need to get the team together to start training and preparation, which is not possible. It would also not be wise to bring a great crowd of children (many from other towns) together in 2 months time, considering what we’re learning from other countries on how long social distancing must be in place (There is also talk that the June/July holidays will be cancelled)

3) Offering
