Jim Hopkins, chaplain with a local Hospice organization, presents the Prayers of the People. Jerry Taylor our minister of worship and music is on vacation in Florida this week. He will return on February 2. Music notes: As we gather for worship Martha Jean Hoehn, guest organist from the Vienna, Virginia Adventist Church, plays Myron Roberts’ that he composed in 1947. Myron Roberts was a prominent organist in Lincoln, Nebraska during the last half of the 20th century. (Hymn 318) is a setting of William Fischer’s hymn by Anna Laura Page, who is known best for her handbell compositions. was composed by Dayton composer, Lani Smith. is a setting of Hymn 240. is a setting of John 3:16 and was originally composed by John Stainer, who was the organist-choir director of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. It has been arranged for Male Chorus by Paul Mickelson. Kelly Eytcheson has further arranged this anthem to include William Bradbury’s hymn, This arrangement is dedicated to Tim Reynolds, choir member, for his friendship and service to the music ministry. (Hymn 221) is one of the great Charles Wesley hymns on the hope of the Resurrection. Even though the famous composer, George Handel, wrote a tune for these words, it continues to be coupled with John Darwall’s tune that he composed for the 148th Psalm. (Hymn 304) was written by Frederick Faber in 1849. Faber was a member of the Roman Catholic faith, but this hymn shares universal truths about our God and has been sung by both Protestants and Catholics for over a century. The tune, ,was composed by Henri Federick Hemy, who was organist at St. Andrews Roman Catholic Church in Newcastle. The tune was originally written for a . poem titled, is from a suite of pieces, composed to feature different families of sound on the organ. The composer, Daniel Gawthrop, is conductor of the Fairfax Symphony in a suburb of Washington D.C. He worships at the National Cathedral and has composed many compositions for their organ. .

"S.D.A. I.D." Second message in series: I. Our Identity‌. A. As an individual

B. As a denomination

"[There is] one unique doctrine of [the Seventh-day Adventist] church. There are other people who believe the Sabbath truth and have held on to that truth for years. There are others who believe the same way we do on the condition of man in death. There are others who accept the gift of prophecy, and there are many, many people, of almost every denomination, who believe in the second coming of Christ. Our only unique contribution to the religious world has been the three angels' messages and the connection they made for us with the sanctuary and judgment teaching."[i]

II. Our Mandate: Revelation 14:6 "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" (Revelation 14:6). A. The eternal gospel to proclaim

B. To every nation, tribe, language and people

III. The Nature of our Calling A. We share a _____________________________________________________.

2008 Year-End Financial Update

We have experienced again the provision of God evidenced in the ways He financially blesses this church. As you know we had some significant financial challenges during 2008. Here is where we stand at year-end: · Tithe increased 11% over 2007 giving levels. · World Missions increased by 7.5% compared to 2007. · Combined Budget (comprised of our church’s contribution to Spring Valley Academy and general church ministries) ended with a deficit of only $75,000, a great blessing considering that the need in October 2008 totaled over $445,000. · Of the Combined Budget deficit, nearly $40,000 relates to the 2007 budget short fall with which we began our 2008 stewardship. We have so much for which to be grateful. Our church members are faithful and generous in giving to the local church. Thank you! What next? In years past Kettering Church’s small year-end operational deficits have been met by using investment income from church endowment funds. With the decline in financial markets, we had no investment income in 2008 to apply to the deficit. The church finance committee and board believe the opportunity to raise the remaining $75,000 is an option preferable to “balancing the budget” by allocating limited funds to our existing ministries for 2009. During the months of February and March we ask you to prayerfully consider how we, together, may provide an additional contribution to “Combined Budget-2008.” We are creating an additional account to receive gifts for this special purpose. This is an opportunity to erase, what amounts to, budget deficits for 2007 and 2008 – to put these permanently behind us, and to start 2009 with exciting prospects for service and growth. Members of our church finance committee, together with our pastoral staff, will review the draft 2009 budget closely to see whether and where to reshape our budget to 2007 levels. We see this as an important stewardship option to consider because the investment income probably will not be available as the cushion we have used for too long. March 28 is our goal date for raising the $75,000 for “Combined Budget-2008.” Whether you regularly give or perhaps are a first-time giver at the Kettering Church, please consider how you can help bring sustained growth and progress to the wonderful ministry opportunities that God is presenting to us every week. Gratefully, Church Finance Committee Kettering Adventist Church Board
