You’re my friend and You are my brother, even though You are a king. I love You more than any other, so much more than anything! You alone are my strength, my shield, to You alone may my spirit yield. You alone are my heart’s desire and I long to worship You.

— Bill Withers, arr. Roger Emerson....................................SVA Choirs Ani Klein, Melissa Etienne, Alexia Jackson, Rebecca Nyachieo, soloists

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain, we all have sorrow. But, if we are wise, we know that there’s always tomorrow. Lean on me when you’re not strong and I’ll be your friend, I’ll help you carry on. For it won’t be long ‘til I’m gonna need somebody to lean on. Please swallow your pride if I have things you need to borrow. For no one can fill those of your needs that you won’t let show. Call on me, brother, when you need a hand, we all need somebody to lean on. Might have a problem that you’ll understand. We all need somebody to lean on. If there is a load you have to bear that you can’t carry, I’m right up the road, I’ll share your load, if you’ll just call me. Call me when you need a friend! Lean on me!


Scripture Lesson:

........................................................Trixie Johnson

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.

Blessing of the Nurses..................................................................Chris VanDenburgh Melinda Miller, parish nurse

We Present Our Tithes and Offerings Offertory:

Robert Ray..............................................SVA Choirs

Krystal Morris & Danielle Ross, soloists I will sing of God’s mercy, every day, every hour, He gives me power. I will sing and give thanks to Thee for all the dangers, toils and snares that He has brought me out. He is my God and I’ll serve Him, no matter what the test. Trust and never doubt, Jesus will surely bring you out, He never failed me yet. I know God is able to deliver in time of storm. I know that He’ll keep you safe from all earthly harm. One day when my weary soul is at rest, I’m going home to be forever blessed. Didn’t my God deliver Moses from King Pharoah? Didn’t He cool the fiery furnace for Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego? When I think of what my God can do, He delivered Daniel, I know He will deliver you.

Doxology:

(Hymn 1, stanza 4)....................................Tune: Praise to the Lord, O let all that is in me adore Him! All that hath life and breath come now with praises before Him! Let the amen sound from His people again. Gladly, forever, adore Him. Amen!

“The Best Advice Ever” Second message in series: I. What is the best advice you ever received?

II. Paul’s Advice: Be a Bold Witness! A. An explanation (2 Timothy 1:8-10) So never be ashamed to tell others about our Lord. And don’t be ashamed of me, either, even though I’m in prison for Him. With the strength God gives you, be ready to suffer with me for the sake of the Good News. For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was His plan from before the beginning of time—to show us His grace through Christ Jesus. And now He has made all of this plain to us by the appearing of Christ Jesus, our Savior. He broke the power of death and illuminated the way to life and immortality through the Good News. B. A testimony (2 Timothy 1:11-14) And God chose me to be a preacher, an apostle, and a teacher of this Good News. That is why I am suffering here in prison. But I am not ashamed of it, for I know the one in whom I trust, and I am sure that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until the day of His return. Hold on to the pattern of wholesome teaching you learned from me—a pattern shaped by the faith and love that you have in Christ Jesus. Through the power of the Holy Spirit who lives within us, carefully guard the precious truth that has been entrusted to you. C. An example (2 Timothy 1:15-18) As you know, everyone from the province of Asia has deserted me—even Phygelus and Hermogenes. May the Lord show special kindness to Onesiphorus and all his family because he often visited and encouraged me. He was never ashamed of me because I was in chains. When he came to Rome, he searched everywhere until he found me. May the Lord show him special kindness on the day of Christ’s return. And you know very well how helpful he was in Ephesus.
