Invocation......................................................................................Pastor Dan Stevens Anthem: Scripture Lesson:

— Janet Linker, Jane McFadden....... Bells of Praise ..........................................................Bethel Doyle

Then I saw another angel flying in midair, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth—to every nation, tribe, language and people. He said in a loud voice, “Fear God and give Him glory,


because the hour of His judgment has come. Worship Him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.” A second angel followed and said, “‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great – which made all the nations drink the maddening wine of her adulteries.” A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on their forehead or on their hand, they, too, will drink the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. They will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment will rise for ever and ever. There will be no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and its image, or for anyone who receives the mark of its name.” This calls for patient endurance on the part of the people of God who keep his commands and remain faithful to Jesus.

Prayers of the People.............................................................................Gerald Greene

We Present Our Tithes and Offerings arr. Melvin K. West...............Church Choir

Offertory:

Sometimes I hear strange music, like none e’er heard before, come floating softly earthward as thro’ Heav’n’s open door: It seems like angel voices, in strains of joy and love, that swell the mighty chorus around the throne above. Now soft, and low, and restful, it floods my soul with peace, as if God’s benediction bade all earth’s troubles cease. Then, grander than the voices of wind, and wave, and sea; it fills the dome of Heaven with glorious harmony. This music haunts me ever, like something heard in dreams; it seems to catch the cadence of heavenly winds and streams. My heart is filled with rapture, to think, some day to come, I’ll sing it with the angels— the song of Heav’n and home. (Refrain)

Doxology:

(Hymn 1; stanza 4).....................................tune: Praise to the Lord, O let all that is in me adore Him! All that hath life and breath come now with praises before Him! Let the amen sound from His people again. Gladly, forever, adore Him. Amen!

Worship Notes: Participants: Dr. David VanDenburgh, professor of religion at Kettering College and our former senior pastor, presents today’s second sermon in the “You Asked For It” sermon series, answering the question “Why be a Seventh-day Adventist?” Dan Stevens, our associate pastor for administration, hosts today’s service and tells the Children’s Story. Bethel Doyle, a lifelong Seventh-day Adventist, reads today’s scripture. Gerry Greene, a third-generation Seventh-day Adventist, presents the Prayers of the People. Jerry Taylor, our minister of worship and music, is the organist-choir director for today’s service. The music for today’s service was chosen from music unique or special to the Seventh-day Adventist Church. As we gather for worship we hear a set of hymns that were written or composed by early pioneers of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. They are played as they could have been in the 1850’s on the harmonium (pump organ). Of particular interest is the (Hymn 441) which was based on personalities the early church pioneers recognized. was composed by Edwin E. Barnes, who was a young, prominent organist/choir master in England that Kellogg recruited to move from Great Britain to Battle Creek and be the organist for the “Dime Tabernacle.” Barnes arrived in Battle Creek to discover there was no organ in the church. A fine organ was contracted for, but due to difficulties, was installed in the Congregational Church. Barnes eventually went to the Congregational Church as organist. He was never considered “one of us” by the Congregational Church, and was considered “defected” by the Adventists. There is no photograph of Barnes, no one knows where he is buried and none of his organ music is currently published. The organ was eventually sold from the Congregational Church to the Adventist Church. (Hymn No. 392) was written by Mary Speidel who is the mother of member, Susan Sickler. Mary Speidel was a member here at Kettering in her later years and a member of the Christian Scribes. She was delighted when the hymnal committee asked to use this hymn and coupled it with a Scottish tune, which was her heritage. She died in 1985. is based upon the text of Hymn 607 using the Welsh tune, . The composers, Janet Linker and Jane McFadden are church musicians in Columbus, Ohio. The Bells of Praise are under the direction of Joan Ulloth Dorgan. was written by Dwight L. Moody, evangelist, and Ira B. Sankey. It was immediately a favorite of Adventist choirs appearing in many arrangements. Today we hear this hymn as a choir anthem in a composition by Melvin K. West, who was a Minister of Music for our Church in the 1980’s and has been referred to as the No. 1 musician in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The hymn this anthem is based upon can be found in our Hymnal No. 472. is a German hymn that was chosen to be Hymn No. 1 in our hymnal. (Hymn No. 214) comes as close to being a Seventh-day Adventist “theme song” as any hymn could. It was composed in 1962 by Wayne Hooper for the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists world gathering and has been sung often by Seventh-day Adventists ever since. is a German hymn found in our Hymnal No. 210. The hymn is basically the parable of the 10 virgins. It can be appropriate to either the First Advent or the Second Advent. This composition by J. S. Bach was played by Edwin Barnes at the Dime Tabernacle.
