Worship Notes: Participants: Dr. Karl Haffner, our senior pastor, presents the first sermon in his series from I Peter, Dan Stevens, our pastor for children’s ministries, is leading in children’s church in the Fellowship Hall. Randy Daniel, elder, host’s today’s service. Becky Wang Scriven, Medical Director for Clinical Quality at Kettering Medical Center, leads us in reading today’s scripture. Charles Scriven, president of KCMA, presents the prayers of the people. Jerry Taylor, our minister of worship and music, is the organist/choir director for today’s service. Today’s music: As we gather for worship we hear the music of Louis Vierne who was the organist at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France during the turn of the 20th century. During his teenage years, a poultice was placed on his eyes that rendered him legally blind. He learned to compose in Braille and set about to write 24 Pieces that could be used as worship music played on either the pipe organ or on a harmonium (pump organ.) both words and music were written by John Ness Beck who lived in Columbus, Ohio, and formed a music publishing company, Brekenhorst Music, which still is a major source of church music today. (Hymn 538) was written in 1745 by William Williams and later transcribed and translated by Peter Williams, a famous American preacher. The tune, , is named after a great river in Wales. is often known by it’s Latin title, and is essentially different music composed by Mark Andrews, a British composer, to the words of Hymn No. 4. The words were written in 1834 by Henry Lyte for his congregation in Lower Brixham, Devonshire where he was the pastor. It is a paraphrase of Psalm 103. the text which can be found in our Hymnal No. 522, was written by Edward Mote, who was a Baptist minister in Great Britain. Today we will sing these words to the tune, which was composed by John B. Dykes who was a lifelong English church musician. is from the same set of “24 Pieces for Organ” played as gathering music. The bell peal that Vierne based this piece on is from the cathedral at Longpont, France.

Next week: January 23, 2010 Pastor Karl Haffner, continues sermon series from I Peter 1:13-25 on “Self-esteem.”

First Serve led by Jerry Mahn Worship music by the Saxophone trio and the Children’s Choir


“What it’s all about: Survival” First message in a study of 1st Peter: I. Survival Matters II. Context of First Peter A. Historical Setting B. Purpose C. Author D. Date written E. Written to whom? F. Salutation (1 Peter 1:1-2) Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, To God's elect, strangers in the world, scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia, who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by his blood: Grace and peace be yours in abundance. G. Doxology (1 Peter 1:3) Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! III. Three Chapters in Peter’s Survival Handbook A. Chapter #1: You will outlive __________________________________. (1 Peter 1:3-6) In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade—kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God's power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. B. Chapter #2: Your faith ________________________________________. (1 Peter 1:7) These have come so that your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. C. Chapter #3: God is at work _____________________________________. (1 Peter 1:8-9) Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
