Invocation...................................................................................................Ted Ramirez Anthem:

arr. Arnold Sherman...................................................Bells of Praise

Scripture Lesson: Matthew 7:24-27......................................................Tom Peebles These words I speak to you are not incidental additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundational words, words to build a life on. If you work these words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who built his house on solid rock. Rain poured down, the river flooded, a tornado hit–but nothing moved that house. It was fixed to the rock. But if you just use my words in Bible studies and don’t work them into your life, you are like a stupid carpenter who built his house on the sandy beach. When a storm rolled in and the waves came up, it collapsed like a house of cards.

Prayers of the People..............................................................................Peggy Martin


We Present our Tithes and Offerings Offertory:

— Dale Grotenhuis.......................Church Choir

From the rising of the sun to the going down of the same, the Lord’s name is to be praised. The Lord is high above all nations, and His glory above the heavens!

Doxology.........................................................................................Old Hundredth Praise God from whom all blessings flow. Praise Him all creatures here below. Praise Him above, ye heavenly host. Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.

Prayer for the Tithes and Offerings Hymn: 1. This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine... 2. Hide it under a bushel, No! I’m gonna let it shine... 3. Won’t let Satan blow it out, I’m gonna let it shine... 4. All around the neighborhood, I’m gonna let it shine... 5. Let it shine ‘til Jesus comes, I’m gonna let it shine...

Next week: February 6, 2010 Pastor Karl Haffner, continues his sermon series on “Submission”

First Serve led by Donald Huff and KJAZZ Worship music by the Wilberforce University Choir and the Praise Orchestra


Worship Notes: Participants: Dr. Karl Haffner, our senior pastor, presents today’s sermon from 1 Peter 2:1-12 talking about sanctification and building your house upon a rock. Tom Peebles, a home construction business owner, reads the scripture. Peggy Martin, a retired teacher, presents the prayers of the people. Chris Terry, church taskforce worker, presents the children’s story. Jerry Taylor, our minister of worship and music, is the organist/choir director for today’s service. Music: Today’s service music was specifically chosen to reflect upon sanctification. The music was chosen from many cultures to signify that Christ accepts all people from any walk of life, from scholars teaching the Christian way, and from the slaves in the fields proclaiming their faith. A we gather for worship we hear two hymns arranged by Paul Manz, Hymn No. 1 in our hymnal, and The Bells of Praise under the direction of Joan Ulloth Dorgan play a musical tribute to those who lost their lives in the Columbine High School shooting in 1999 near Denver, CO. It is more about the joy we have knowing that there is random and unexplained good in the world than it is about the senseless, random, and unexplained evil and that the answer to violence is changed hearts. There are 15 tolled chords at the beginning and ending of the piece, one for each life lost that day. A year after the tragic event, more than 2500 handbell choirs around the world played this music on the same weekend. (Hymn 348) was chosen to amplify today’s sermon. This hymn was originally 10 stanzas (for use in processionals in Salisbury Cathedral) and was designed to be instructional, which Samuel helping the people to understand the basic Christian beliefs. It is sung to the tune Wesley composed for his grandfather, Charles Wesley’s hymn, is what is known as a “smash” where two tunes are played together. is a contemporary Christian hymn and is an Isaac Watts hymn found in our Hymnal No. 154. The Bells of Praise are accompanied by Jesse Schaffer, percussion, Becca Thompson, bass guitar and Jerry Taylor, organ. is a setting of Psalm 13 by Dale Grotenhuis. He taught choir and voice at Dordt College, a Lutheran college in Minneapolis, MN for over 35 years until his retirement in 1995. is one of the basic tenants of today’s sermon. This Negro spiritual has three equally well known tunes that were developed in different regions of the American south. Today we sing the one that was written down by John Work and is most familiar to Seventh-day Adventists because it is sung by the kindergarten and primary Sabbath School divisions. is a new hymn that allows us to sing about Christ accompanying us on our life journey. John Yivisaker, a choral conductor in Minnesota, wrote both the music and words to this hymn in 1985. was composed for organ by Benedetto Marcello (1686-1739). Marcello was a younger contemporary of Antonio Vivaldi in Venice, and his instrumental music enjoys a “Vivaldian” flavor. This music has been “arranged” and “adapted” through the years for the modern organ, but it still sings the spirit of the 19th Psalm, “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament shows His handiwork.”


What’s It All About: Sanctification Third message in series: I. The Father’s Fondest Hope II. The Adventure of Sanctification A. (Matthew 5:48) “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.” B. (1 Peter 1:15) “Be holy, because I am holy.” C. (1 Peter 2:1-3) “Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.” III. The “How?” of Sanctification A. Build your life on the Living Stone. (1 Peter 2:4-6) “As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says: ‘See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.’” B. Obey the teachings of Living Stone. (1 Peter 2:7-8) “Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone,’ and, ‘A stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.’ They stumble because they disobey the message—which is also what they were destined for.” C. You must choose sanctification. IV. Chosen for Sanctification (1 Peter 2:9-10) “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” V. Sanctification in Real Life A. (1 Peter 2:11-12) “Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul. Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day He visits us.” B. (Matthew 5:16) “…let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” VI. A Metaphor of Sanctification
