Scripture Lesson:

........................................................Peggy Martin

For you are a people holy to the Lord your God. The Lord your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be His people, His treasured possession. The Lord did not set His affection on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples. But it was because the Lord loved you and kept the oath He swore to your


ancestors that He brought you out with a mighty hand and redeemed you from the land of slavery, from the power of Pharaoh, King of Egypt. Know therefore that the Lord your God is God. He is the faithful God, keeping His covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love Him and keep His commandments.

Worship Notes: Participants: Dr. Karl Haffner, our senior pastor, presents today’s sermon in his series, with “The Remnant.” Randy Daniel, an elder and financial planner hosts today’s worship. Peggy Martin, retired teacher, reads the Scripture Lesson. Shelina Berglund, our intern for young adults, presents the Prayers of the People. Elliot Smith, our pastor for outreach, the taskforce program and young adults, tells the Children’s Story. Jerry Taylor, our minister of worship and music, is the organist/choir director for today’s service. As we gather for worship Grant Wareham plays the first movement of Beethoven’s . Ludwig van Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1 in C Major, op. 15, was written during 1796 and 1797. The first performance was in Prague in 1798, with Beethoven himself playing the piano. Although this was Beethoven's first piano concerto to be published, it was, in fact, his third attempt at the genre, following an unpublished piano concerto in E-flat Major and the Piano Concerto No. 2, published after Piano Concerto No. 1 (in 1801) but composed almost ten years earlier. The music for today’s service has been chosen to enhance the point of the sermon. is a Charles Wesley hymn that celebrates Christ’s love for us. Since we sang this hymn just a few weeks ago, today we that helps to keep the text fresh. will sing it with an alternate tune, Debbie Daniel, a corporate nurse, our Cradle Roll Sabbath School leader, and choir soloist, sings Hymn No. in a setting by Nashville musician, Ronn Huff, using the 338, Baptist tune, “Ada.” In contrast, for the offertory, the choir sings the classic anthem by Johannes Brahms, from his “German Requiem” which is a setting of Psalm 84:1,2,4. In response to today’s sermon, we will sing Peter Scholtes’ hymn, . Written in 1966, this hymn was immensely popular in its day, but has become old and out of fashion. Interesting enough, it is enjoying a small resurgence. The video on the screens is by the currently popular contemporary Christian group, Jars of Clay. The text is over 46 years old, but it could have been written this morning. This song says that in the last days, we'll be recognized as Christians -- true disciples of Jesus -not by our rhetoric or our politics or even the soundness of our theology, but by our love. Between stanzas Sharon Williams, choir member and sixth and seventh-grade teacher at Spring Valley Academy, will sing written by John Mays and Jon Mohr for Sandi Patty. The alternation of hymns will be accompanied by Dale Creech, piano; Elliot Smith, guitar; Jerry Mahn, banjo and organ systhesizer. The service ends with a setting of Hymn No. 12, by the beloved American organist, Paul Manz.

Next Sabbath, May 12: Pastor Karl Haffner will continue our sermon series, . 9:30 a.m.

11:45 a.m.


, Part 4 “The Remnant” I. Some Misgivings about Remnant Theology

II. A Biblical Construct of Remnant Theology A. The Remnant and the Old Testament (Genesis 7:23 NIV) “Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; men and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds of the air were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark.” (Isaiah 11:11 NIV) “In that day the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to reclaim the remnant that is left of His people . . .” (Jeremiah 23:3 NIV) “I myself will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the countries where I have driven them and will bring them back to their pasture, where they will be fruitful and increase in number.” (Ezekiel 6:5-8 NIV) “I will lay the dead bodies of the Israelites in front of their idols, and I will scatter your bones around your altars. … But I will spare some, for some of you will escape the sword when you are scattered among the lands and nations.” B. Remnant and the Early Christian Church (Romans 11:5-6 NIV) “So too, at the present time there is a remnant chosen by grace. And if by grace, then it is no longer by works; if it were, grace would no longer be grace.” C. The Remnant and the End of Time (Revelation 12:17 NIV) “Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring--those who obey God's commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.” (Revelation 14:12 NIV) “This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God's commandments and remain faithful to Jesus.”

III. An Application of Remnant Theology A. The message of the remnant is ____________________________________________
