Scripture Lesson:

And I saw a great white throne, and Him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened... And the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works... And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire....

Prayers of the People.........................................................................................Linda Farley Vocal Solo:

— Frederick M. Lehmaer...... Sharon Williams, mezzo-soprano

The love of God is greater far than tongue or pen can ever tell. It goes beyond the highest star, and reaches to the lowest hell. The guilty pair, bowed down with care, God gave His Son to win. His erring child He reconciled, and pardoned from his sin. (Refrain) When years of time shall pass away, and earthly thrones and kingdoms fall, when men, who here refuse to pray, on rocks and hills and mountains call, God’s love so sure, shall still endure, all measureless and strong. Redeeming grace to Adam’s race—the saints’ and angels’ song. (Refrain) Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made, were every stalk on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade, to write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry. Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky.

Worship Notes: Participants: Dr. Karl Haffner, our senior pastor, presents today’s sermon in his series, with Elliot Smith, our pastor for young adults, internship, and outreach ministries, tells the Children’s Story and hosts today’s worship. Millie Mills, lifetime Adventist, reads the Scripture Lesson. Linda Farley, Millie’s daughter and chaplain at the Soin Medical Center, presents the Prayer of the People. Jerry Taylor, our minister of worship and music, is the organist for today’s service. As we gather for worship we hear three contrasting works from English composers. John Dunstable (c. 1390 -1453) is not England’s most influencial composer, yet much of Britian’s musical heritage is traced back to his influence. His music was unpublished until 1953. (translates “Lovely”) is a hymntune by John Edwards heard in a setting by the British organist/composer Ralph Vaughan Williams. The was composed by George F. Handel in 1749. The event was a disaster ending in a huge fire; the music a huge success and has been played for centuries. was written by Bonnie Powers Boyd, who now lives in Tacoma Park, MD, for a Mother’s Day worship service in 1984. This was a particularly hard time of her life. Difficult choices were being made following a serious auto accident where her husband was left a mentally deficient invalid. Bonnie, realizing that she was now going to be both mother and father to a young child, wrote this hymn of praise in reaction to her situation. (Grant Us Thy Peace) was chosen for today’s worship service that recognizes mothers and the Millennium. The original composer is uncertain. Many, including Mozart and others, attribute it to Palestrina. The arrangement for 4 violins was made by Jerry Taylor. Grant Wareham, Jonathan Beebe, Elizabeth Wareham and Karina Beebe are the violinists. was written by Frederick M. Lehman, a pastor in the Church of the Nazarene. He wrote this song in 1917 and it was published in , Volume 2, 1919. The lyrics are based on the Jewish poem, , written in Aramaic in 1050 by Meir Ben Isaac Nehorai, a cantor in Worms, Germany; they have been translated into at least 18 languages. Sharon Williams, soloist, has taught at Spring Valley Academy for the past 15 years and will be joining the faculty at Spencerville Academy near Washington DC next year. is the most famous work of John Ylvisaker, who is a composer for the Lutheran Church ECLA. The piece was originally composed to go with a video, but it didn’t fit. That music became “Dancing With Jesus” and this tune and words were created. This hymn has been included in most new hymnals published since 1985. was composed by the British organist of Westminster Abbey, Henry Purcell.

Next Sabbath, May 19, Pastor Elliot Smith will continue our sermon series, . 9:30 a.m.

Challenged, Part 5 “The Millennium” I. The Need for Justice

II. The Beginning of the 1,000 Years (Revelation 20:1-3 NIV) And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. {2} He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. {3} He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.

III. During the 1,000 Years (Revelation 20:4-6 NIV) “I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. {5} (The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended.) This is the first resurrection. {6} Blessed and holy are those who have part in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him for a thousand years.”

IV. The Ending of the 1,000 Years (Revelation 20:7-10) “When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison {8} and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth--Gog and Magog--to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. {9} They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God's people, the city he loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. {10} And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown.”

V. The Earth Made New (Revelation 21:1-4 NIV) Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. {2} I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. {3} And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. {4} He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

Welcome Kasper Haughton

We are pleased to introduce the newest member of the Kettering SDA Church pastoral staff! Kasper Haughton Jr. will be the Youth and Children’s Minister. He graduated from the Andrew University Seminary (MDIV) last week and will be joining the staff here at Kettering in July. While in Seminary, Kasper was involved with the Center for Youth Evangelism, the NAD Worship & Music Conference, and as team member of the "One Place, Church of Refuge" ministry for youth and young adults at Andrews. Here is a statement from Kasper about what led him into ministry:

Kasper Haughton, Jr.

"I grew up in a multicultural Seventh-day Adventist Christian family, watching both my dad and grandfather pastor their own congregations. However, it wasn’t until college that I found my own personal passion for Jesus. I went to Southern Adventist University with the determined goal of becoming a medical doctor. But with the equivalent of three years of pre- med studies out of the way, God had different plans. I felt a strong call from God to pastoral ministry after spending a year away in student missionary work. Since that point, it has been amazing to watch God confirming His call on my life." He will visit, for a weekend, several times over the next two months - but will not begin employment here until July. In the meantime, we encourage you to send him a phone call, or a text message (574.344.7818) - introducing him to the kindness and warmth of this congregation.
