WORSHIP NOTES Participants: Karl Haffner, our senior pastor, presents the fourth sermon in his five-week series on . Today we look at the “church.” Brendon Prutzman, our pastor for youth and administration, hosts today’s service and gives the children’s lesson. The scripture is read by the Wareham family. Marshall Wareham is an elder, chairman of the music committee and an ophthalmologist. Karen Wareham is the music department volunteer, co-head deaconess, member of the choir, and homeschool teacher. Elizabeth Wareham is a freshman homeschool student, member of the choir, and studies violin with Dr. Won-Bin Yim. Grant Wareham is a 7th-grade homeschool student and studies organ with Jerry Taylor.

Music: As we gather for worship we hear three organ pieces composed by Louis Vierne, who was organist at Notre Dame Cathedral at the turn of the twentieth century. These three pieces were chosen for today’s service because they speak of church life. A is a song. A is harder to translate. It means to is to be lifted up. It is meant abide in or be held close. It is sometimes translated as a lullaby. The to be played during communion where the bread and wine are offered to us, Christ’s people. (Hymn 348) was one of 12 hymns written to explain the “apostles creed” to people who couldn’t read. Our hymnal has stanzas 1, 2, 4 & 5 of the original 10 stanzas. was originally conceived as the from the “Octet for Clarinet and Strings.” It was chosen for today’s service to represent one of the most important elements of a church, “prayer.” One music editor believes that Schubert referred to this piece as the “prayer” because first our petitions are given to Christ, (the violin solo) and then suddenly you realize that there is a duet going on, as if Christ were joining in our prayer, and then the parts switch as if Christ answered our prayers and we are singing his praises. was composed in 2002 and is sung by Cherié Haffner and accompanied by Elizabeth Wareham, violin, Dale Creech, piano, and with organ strings. It was chosen for today’s service because of how it refers to being close to Christ (and His people) and how that buoys up our spirits. (Hymn 350) was written in 1782 by John Fawcett and printed in Fawcett was a dearly loved Baptist minister. is an organ piece written by John Stainer for worship at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, GB. The song begins with a big sound, followed by a slower softer section written for the music to roll around in St. Paul’s, and then ends with an ornamented repeat of the beginning.


Getting God in Church Fourth message in series: I. Can you find God in church? (Acts 2:40-47, culture!”

[Peter said] “Get out while you can; get out of this sick and stupid

41-42That day about three thousand took him at his word, were baptized and were signed up. They committed themselves to the teaching of the apostles, the life together, the common meal, and the prayers. 43-45Everyone around was in awe—all those wonders and signs done through the apostles! And all the believers lived in a wonderful harmony, holding everything in common. They sold whatever they owned and pooled their resources so that each person's need was met. 46-47They followed a daily discipline of worship in the Temple followed by meals at home, every meal a celebration, exuberant and joyful, as they praised God. People in general liked what they saw. Every day their number grew as God added those who were saved.

II. What did they see? A. Compassionate treatment of ________________________________________ Pliny the Younger: “Many persons of every age, every status and also of both sexes, are at risk of joining the church. This contagion, has spread not only to cities but to villages and farms, but it seems possible to check and cure it.” B. Compassionate treatment of ________________________________________ Julian the Apostate: “I think that when the poor were overlooked by the priests, the impious Galileans noticed how the poor were being overlooked and devoted themselves to benevolence.” C. Compassionate treatment of ________________________________________ O.M. Bakke: The ancient world had no clear conception of childhood as we do and therefore violence, infanticide, leaving a child to die of exposure, if it wasn’t wanted because of its gender or poverty or it was sickly or something—leaving it to die of exposure.” (Galatians 3:28-29) In Christ's family there can be no division into Jew and non-Jew, slave and free, male and female. Among us you are all equal. That is, we are all in a common relationship with Jesus Christ. III. Can we replicate the early Christian Church? www.stopthetraffik.org; www.rugmark.org; www.freetheslaves.net; www.polarisproject.org; www.castla.org; www.sojo.net; www.ijm.org; www.catwinternational.org; www.depdc.org IV.
