STEWARDSHIP SUNDAY

NOVEMBER 17, 2019   10:00 A.M.

Welcome to the Preakness Reformed Church!

 

“We don’t get discouraged because any light we have is the light of Christ. Christ is

the source of any power we possess when faced with the difficulties of this world.

Our hope is in Christ, whose light has shone in our hearts and now empowers us to

reflect his light in the world.” –Preacher William H. Willimon

  • CALL TO WORSHIP 

The Lord has called you here this day.

In Baptism, the Lord reveals the plans and purposes for our lives.

(Water poured into the font.)

By the Holy Spirit all who believe and are baptized receive a ministry to witness to Jesus as Savior and Lord!  We are to love and serve those with whom we live and work.

We are ambassadors for Christ, who reconciles and makes whole.

We are the salt of the earth; we also are the light of the world.

May the powerful light of Jesus within us transform lives.

We have come into the shining presence of Christ,

let us sing our praises to the name of Jesus, AMEN!

Voice of Truth            Mark Hill | Steven Curtis Chapman                                 

Verse:
Oh what I would do to have the kind of faith it takes
To climb out of this boat I'm in onto the crashing waves
To step out of my comfort zone into the realm of the unknown
Where Jesus is and He's holding out His hand

Pre-Chorus:
But the waves are calling out my name and they laugh at me
Reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed
The waves, they keep on telling me time and time again
"Boy, you'll never win, you'll never win"

Chorus:
But the voice of truth tells me a different story
The voice of truth says, "Do not be afraid"
And the voice of truth says, "This is for My glory"
Out of all the voices calling out to me
I will choose to listen and believe
The voice of truth

2nd Verse:
Oh what I would do to have the kind of strength it takes
To stand before a giant with just a sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound of a thousand warriors
Shaking in their armor wishing they'd have had the strength to stand

Pre-Chorus:
But the giant's calling out my name and he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me time and time again
"Boy you'll never win, you'll never win!"

Chorus

Bridge:
But the stone was just the right size to put the giant on the ground
And the waves they don't seem so high from on top of them looking down
I will soar with the wings of eagles when I stop 
And listen to the sound of Jesus singing over me

Chorus

Coda:
I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth
