Order Of Service
Your Sunday Worship Service
The Lord said “Wherever two or three are gathered in my name” that He would be with them so gather together this Sunday and worship. If you do not have a home church to attend this coming Sunday please use this Worship Service Plan and enjoy a service of your own. You can use this worship service plan in your homes, prisons, and hospitals. The church is a collection of all Christians and has nothing to do with the building.
This Worship Service Plan is useful for anyone anywhere, whether individuals, shut-ins, your family gathered in the den, a nursing facility of sick & elderly, you and your neighbors sitting in the backyard, or any group of believers who share a need to gather and praise and worship The Lord God. If you wish to locate a home church for you and your family please consider what you should look for and use this church locator tool to find just the perfect home church near you.
Each and every week by Tuesday or Wednesday there will be a Worship Service Plan posted, complete with Prayers, Praise Music, Sunday School lesson, Sermons and more so you can prepare to lead your group.
These services will remain on the website permanently so if you miss a week and want to go back and catch up it won’t be a problem at all.
Please let us know how this works for you and if you have any suggestions for improvement. Please share this Facebook Post with as many as you can. You never know who might come to know The Lord from such a time as this.
Call To Worship
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
A Prayer For Personal Integrity
Father, personal purity is never automatic or easily produced. Integrity doesn’t flow from our flesh naturally or freely. In fact, many of us have lived too many days of our lives in hypocrisy and deception. That’s why we need You so desperately. We don’t know how to unravel the mess of our bad habits or untie the knots of our past, so we’re tempted to continue ignoring Your convicting voice and living lives of regret. But enough is enough! We are determined to ignore it no longer. We refuse to wade any longer in shallow pools of carnality. Beginning today, we are determined to live lives of integrity. We ask You to honor our decision to walk with You, to cease our life of duplicity, to stop compromising our integrity. Give us Your strength, dear Father, Your help, Your courage, Your wisdom. Forgive our foolish and hypocritical ways. Deliver us from the dangerous and deep quicksand of deceitful sin and establish us on the solid rock of vulnerability and integrity.
May Your grace keep us from a judgmental spirit toward others, Lord. Give us the encouragement we need to be all You have called us to be as Your obedient children, so that we, like David with the sheep, might guide others skillfully and well.
In the strong name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Today’s Scripture For Inspiration
By John Hagee
Deuteronomy 28:13 “you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.”
Too many times, we wonder if God is on our side. We question His good intentions and doubt His love.
In Deuteronomy 28, God spelled out all of the ways He had determined to bless the Israelites—in the city and country, their children and crops, their land and livestock, their baskets and kneading bowls, their wombs and workplaces. He promised to pour out the rain and put their enemies on the run, to make them the head and not the tail.
This is the God we serve! He promised that those blessings would overtake those who took refuge under the name of the Lord Almighty. He longs to bless us—just like those long-ago Israelites. All those blessings are ours “if…”.
He only asks one thing: that we carefully listen and diligently obey the commands of God…The “if” is not in Him…He sincerely desires to give us the protection and provision He promised…The “if” is in us…If we desire the blessings of God to overtake us in 2022, we must answer the “if” today…Be willing to carefully obey His commands…If we are, the Lord will open up His good treasures to us (verse 12)!!!

Invitation To Come To Christ
The Romans Road To Salvation
The Romans Road to salvation is a way of explaining the good news of salvation using verses from the Book of Romans. It is a simple yet powerful method of explaining why we need salvation, how God provided salvation, how we can receive salvation, and what are the results of salvation.
We are all sinners
The first verse on the Romans Road to salvation is Romans 3:23, ‘For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.’ We have all sinned. We have all done things that are displeasing to God. There is no one who is innocent. Romans 3:10-18 gives a detailed picture of what sin looks like in our lives.
The penalty for sin is hell
The second Scripture on the Romans Road to salvation, Romans 6:23, teaches us about the consequences of sin – ‘For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.’ The punishment that we have earned for our sins is death. Not just physical death, but eternal death!
We must confess our sins
The fourth stop on the Romans Road to salvation is Romans 10:9, ‘that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.’
We must call on The Lord
Because of Jesus’ death on our behalf, all we have to do is believe in Him, trusting His death as the payment for our sins – and we will be saved! Romans 10:13 says it again, ‘for everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’ Jesus died to pay the penalty for our sins and rescue us from eternal death. Salvation, the forgiveness of sins, is available to anyone who will trust in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
What this means to you
The final aspect of the Romans Road to salvation is the results of salvation. Romans 5:1 has this wonderful message, ‘Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.’ Through Jesus Christ we can have a relationship of peace with God. Romans 8:1 teaches us, ‘Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.’ Because of Jesus’ death on our behalf, we will never be condemned for our sins. Finally, we have this precious promise of God from Romans 8:38-39, ‘For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.’
ABCs Of Salvation: Where the rubber meets the road
(A)dmit that you are a sinner.
Romans 3:23 KJV – For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Romans 6:23 KJV – For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
(B)elieve that Jesus died to pay for your sins.
John 3:16-17 KJV – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
(C)onfess your sins and (C)all on Jesus for salvation.
1 John 1:9 KJV – If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Acts 2:21 KJV – And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
God, I know that I am a sinner. I know that I deserve the consequences of my sin. However, I am trusting in Jesus Christ as my Savior. I believe that His death and resurrection provided for my forgiveness. I trust in Jesus and Jesus alone as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you Lord, for saving me and forgiving me! Amen!

Closing Prayer & Blessing
Lord Jesus, we came this morning praying that Your mercy would pour out on us and ease our fears and concerns as this virus continues to threaten our land and lives and you have done just that. We are grateful for the time we have been able to spend with You in praise, worship, and fellowship. Thank you for loving us so much You gave your life for us on the cross so we can have a home in heaven some day. Father, you have been gracious to provide all our needs for our entire lives. Guide us as we go back to our homes. Show us the right way to follow throughout the week, and when we come back, we shall testify of the great things that you have done in our lives. In Jesus’ name, we believe and pray, Amen.
A Blessing As We Go Forward This week
And now may the Lord bless you, and may the Lord keep you. May the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you, giving you his peace. May you be committed to doing the will of God, living in the perfect providential graciousness of God your Father. He will send his angels before you to prepare your way, and behind you to be your rear guard. Know that you will live within his divine favor, because you are obedient to him. May the Lord bless you now in all things. Do not be ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for it is the power of God for salvation and life.
