Worship Notes: Participants: Dr. Karl Haffner, our senior pastor, begins our new year with a sermon on prayer. All of our pastors are present for prayer groups following the sermon. Clive Wilson, Kettering College Chaplain, hosts today’s worship. Jerry Taylor, our minister of worship and music, is the organist for today’s service.

Music: As we gather for worship we hear Léon Boëllmann’s from his “Suite Gothique” Op. 25. Boëllmann (1862-1897) was a devout church musician at the church of St. Vincent de Paul in Paris, France.

(Hymn No. 341) is a Fanny Crosby hymn from 1875 with music by William Doane.

is one of the most popular pieces of chamber music written by Franz Schubert (1797-1828). (also known as “Adagio”) is the second of the six movement “Octet” that was originally composed for clarinet, bassoon, horn, two violins, viola, cello, and double bass. Elizabeth Wareham, violin, is a homeschool senior.

(Hymn No. 495) has served as the call to prayer on the Voice of Prophecy radio broadcast since 1930. Both words and music were written by Cleland McAfee, who was a Presbyterian pastor in New England at the turn of the twentieth century.

Next Sabbath, January 14: Pastor Karl Haffner will begin a new sermon series, 9:30 a.m. Serv 11:45 a.m. Music by the church choir


A God Actsplosion I. Why doesn’t that happen to me? (Acts 16:6-7) Paul and his companions traveled throughout the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been kept by the Holy Spirit from preaching the word in the province of Asia. When they came to the border of Mysia, they tried to enter Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not allow them to. II. The Early Christian Church: Snapshots of the Supernatural A. Lydia (Acts 16:13-15) On the Sabbath we went outside the city gate to the river, where we expected to find a place of prayer. We sat down and began to speak to the women who had gathered there. One of those listening was a woman from the city of Thyatira named Lydia, a dealer in purple cloth. She was a worshiper of God. The Lord opened her heart to respond to Paul’s message. When she and the members of her household were baptized, she invited us to her home. “If you consider me a believer in the Lord,” she said, “come and stay at my house.” And she persuaded us. B. The Demon-possessed Slave (Acts 16:16-18) Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a female slave who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling. She followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.” She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so annoyed that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit left her. C. Paul and Silas (Acts 16:25-34) About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose. The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself because he thought the prisoners had escaped. But Paul shouted, “Don’t harm yourself! We are all here!” The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas. He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house. At that hour of the night the jailer took them and washed their wounds; then immediately he and all his household were baptized. The jailer brought them into his house and set a meal before them; he was filled with joy because he had come to believe in God—he and his whole household. III.
