This weekend, we continued our Romans series, focusing on Romans 11. In his message, Joe taught about God's sovereignty and His faithful legacy for us, where He goes above and beyond anything we have experienced anywhere else. He is so good to us. You can listen to the entire message here. Here's our service plan from this weekend:
"Everlasting God" (Bb) [Brenton Brown, Ken Riley] Welcome/Greeting Time Call To Worship "Forever Reign" (Ab) [Jason Ingram, Reuben Morgan] "You Are God Alone (Not A god)" (Ab) [Billy Foote, Cindy Foote] "Your Great Name" (Bb) [Michael Neale, Krissy Nordhoff] Prayer Message - "Romans 11" [Joe Hishmeh] "Lord Of All" (Bb) [Kristian Stanfill] Offering/Announcements Dismissal
"Everlasting God" - This one is another staple here at Fellowship. Our people connect well with it, and it speaks great truth from Isaiah chapter 40.
"Forever Reign" - This is one of our church's favorite songs. Sarah Oldberg led us on this one, and our people sang well on it in each of the services.
"You Are God Alone (Not A god)" - This was a new song for our congregation (in worship anyways), and it is one of my favorite songs. Billy and Cindy Foote wrote it, and it was made fairly popular by CCM artists Philips, Craig, and Dean. I still prefer the original, as Cindy Foote has a very powerful voice that connects well with the message of the song. Sarah led us on this one as well, and she did a great job doing so.
"Your Great Name" - This song is still fairly new to our congregation, as we only introduced it last weekend during communion. I love how this song declares the power of the name of Jesus.
"Lord Of All" - This remains one of my favorites, and a favorite for our congregation. It was also a great fit for the message this weekend, as we spoke of the mystery and sovereignty of God. Jesus is the Lord of all!
This weekend was a good weekend of worship, albeit somewhat challenging. Both Sarah and I were sick this weekend, and it was a very good thing that we were sharing leadership this weekend, so we could get through it. I am so thankful for our great team who steps up and makes it happen week-in and week-out.
I hope you had a great weekend of worship wherever you were!
In the Son, Bill
