English Worship 7.3

“We gather each week for Christian worship and fellowship, following a historic tradition that unites people of diverse backgrounds by the sharing of the Good News of Jesus Christ.”

We are glad you are here, from wherever you are – rejoicing in the hope of our Savior Jesus!

Below, please find our Sermon audio, bible readings and some songs. Set some time aside today if you are able, either alone or with some friends or family, and enter into an intentional time of worship with our God. May He bless you today and may you know that Jesus is always with you! 🙂

 “Thought for the Day” 

How can you change the world? Followers of Jesus only have the power of his word to accomplish their task. In our readings this week, we see Jesus send his followers to give their very lives for the faith of other people.

Luke 10:1-20

【Luk 10:1】After this the Lord appointed seventy-two [ Some manuscripts seventy; also in verse 17 ] others and sent them two by two ahead of him to every town and place where he was about to go. 

【Luk 10:2】He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.

 Sermon 
 Prayer 

Spend some time in prayer with our Heavenly Father. He asks us to pray, to talk with Him. Like a father and his child. Bring to Him your problems and your difficult situations. Bring to Him your hopes and desires. Praise Him and give Him thanks for all He’s done. 

Share your life with Him, 

because He loves you.

Go in peace and serve the Lord!
