Excerpt from Today's Devotion,
"You Are Loved"
based on Jeremiach 31:3 , which reads:

“I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.”

"It is not that we loved God, but that He loved us. God has all knowledge. He knows every sin you will do or think. With that knowledge He still chose you. How much does God love us? As the Father loves the Son, in the same manner Jesus loves His people. This love is as intimate, strong, and firmly established as the eternal relationship between the Son and the Father."
Readings for Sunday, September 20, 2020
The Old Testament Reading is Isaiah 55:6-9.
We read Psalm 27:1-14.
The Epistle reading is Philippians 1:12-14 and 19-30.
The Holy Gospel is Matthew 20:1-16.
The Sermon Text is Isaiah 55:6-9.
6 Seek the LORD while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near; 7 let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the LORD, that He may have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon. 8 "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways," declares the LORD. 9 "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts."
We are looking for singers and musicians, experienced or not!
